All Creatures Great & Small: The Complete Series 5 Collection (DVD) (Repackaged)
All Creatures Great and Small Series Five continues the heart-warming tales of James Herriot (Christopher Timothy), his wif Helen (Lynda Bellingham) and his volatile but warm-hearted partner, Siegfried Farnon (Robert Hardy). The period is now the early Fifties, but the Dales are slow to embrace the world of tomorrow. Tristan (Peter Davison) has left the Ministry of Agriculture to return to the Darrowby practice. Even with Calum (John McGlynn) on the team, the vets see little of the leisure that the modern age promises.]]>

Series 5 may be different in that the series no longer is by James Herriot but in fact, written by other writers familiar with the characters of James, Siegfried, Tristan, and James' wife, Helen..
With the new addition of Calum Buchanan, John McGlynn's first series ever, is magical with the added twist of the romantic mishaps of Deirdre, his lady-love.
His portrayal reminds me of the energy that the other vets had during the first series and second. Even more so, tis a part of Calum's nature,his love for animals distracts his whole day on many occasions!
I miss Helen (the first one) in Carol Drinkwater.The real-life romance between Christopher Timothy and Carol Drinkwater is most naturally effervescent and missed in Seasons 4 & 5..
Lynda Bellingham has her own way with the character of Helen Herriot, so one has to adjust.
Still, a worthwhile Series Five, to watch with the whole family. They haven't run out of storylines and worth keeping to share with friends.
Going for Series 6 and beyond!
Set in late 1940's and early 1950's, the series is based on real life situations in the Yorkshire Dales of England. James Herriot's beloved stories published in several books have now been brought to the screen.
I have enjoyed the books and now can enjoy the series on DVD as well.
