Two Dr. Who's!!!
16 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For the 'Dr.Who' enthusiast this episode of 'All Creatures Great and Small' actually has two of them - there's Peter Davison as Tristan Farnon and Patrick Troughton as Roddy, a gentleman of the road! I live not far from where these shows were filmed and its always good fun to see exactly where they are, I guess to film the series nowadays would be difficult what with mobile phone masts, satellite dishes and stupid obscure road markings and sleeping policeman!!! I sometimes wonder if the late 1970's to 1980's was the last chance to film such a show was possible. It's also good to see the old car's, lorries and tractors. One last thing, the wife and I think this version of Helen a bit of a simpering wimp and no way reflects a true daughter of a farmer, I should know - my parents came from Yorkshire farming stock...
