For six straight seasons it was as good as any series on British TV. But once it was understood they would end the show after the 7th season, and Dawn Steele.. bit.ly/18KGBKD .. announced she was leaving to have her first child.. it pretty much was all but over. Her departure after the 1st episode in series 7 really showed just how important she had been to the ultimate success and vitality of the program. In addition, the program itself had become 'a lot of the same'... well done, but still lots of animals getting injured and healed and so forth. At some point it would be nice to view the Christmas Special where Steele returned to the show (and reportedly to have a serious kiss from someone other than Danny), but who knows when and how that finale double episode will get released for streaming... it's on DVD in the UK. PS - Very annoying has since been removed from netflix streaming.. too many good productions being taken away by them!!
