  • One on the best programs ever produced

    9.5
    I first started watching on PBS. After it not shown on PBS any longer, I started trying to fine it again. Netflix thankful shows it now. It makes me a little sad to know the program is no longer made. I love the beautiful country where the show was filmed.
  • Bestiality for the masses

    Not a weekend went by when I was a child without seeing Herriot elbow deep in a cow's rectum, touching up a dog or probing a sheep. Deeply, deeply disturbing.
  • Taken from the books....

    I have learned of the series, by seeing it on the public station . When I started to watch it I could see that they were going off the books . I have read the books about ten times. So I can tell you that the stories that they showed during this series are very goes to the real stories that James Harriet wrote about. I enjoy the fact that some people still know how to read and write for TV, the same things come off the screen. This is the kind off TV that I like to see more of.moreless
  • This is a truly wonderful show set in beautiful scenery, revisiting the time when James Herriot was a vet.

    9.4
    All Creatures Great and Small is a classic comedy which would be a sin to produce again. The cast was just right, totally believable in their triumphs and mishaps. I have long been a fan of the books and the programme and have now visited a lot of the places mentioned in the books. I have also visited the James Herriot museum in the original vet's surgery in Thirsk, North Yorkshire - this is a sight to behold wirh all the old fashioned medecines, tools and treatments (I don't think my dog would have been so keen on visiting the vet in those days!)moreless
  • This is a hilarious show about James Harriet. A veterinarian just out of school, James, comes to a small English town to be an veterinarian assistant. He instantly falls in love with the people of the town, but he must cope with the life of a vet.moreless

    Based on a book by James Harriet this show is a great family series. It tells about the life of a young veterinarian in a small English town, making the show hilarious. On one hand you have Sigfried who knows ALL about the small town life, and on the other...James, the newcomer to the slow moving ways. Though, James becomes comfortable right away with the people, Sigfried enjoys watching the people get used to "the new veterinarian." The people from BBC portrayed Harriet's book with perfection. They couldn't have gotten any closer to the characters, and story line of his life. I definitely recommend watching this show, you WILL enjoy it.moreless
