Product Description

All Creatures Great and Small Series Six continues the heart-warming tales of James Herriot (Christopher Timothy), his wife 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. Even with Calum (John McGlynn) on the team, the vets see little of the leisure that the modern age promises.

James Herriot's beloved book and subsequent BBC series All Creatures Great & Small outline, with wry humor and exquisite detail, Herriot's experiences in the 1940s and '50s as a veterinarian in Yorkshire, England. The Complete Series 6 Collection continues the yarns into the '50s, as Herriot's practice expands and his home life with wife Helen becomes more important to him. Yet the most unforgettable moments remain not only his treating of the sick (or just plain ornery) cows, tabbies, and bunnies of the Yorkshire countryside, but also the eccentric, hard-working (or just plain ornery) residents of the county. This four-disc boxed set includes characters like twin brothers Roland and Oliver Strong, who live together in the cottage their mother left them--though they have refused to speak to each other for 50 years. Herriot gets the unenviable task of being summoned when one old coot accuses the other of poisoning one of his rabbits. The real pleasure of this series is simply letting the interaction of the characters wash over you, especially that of Herriot (played with bemused heart by Christopher Timothy) and his prickly partner, Siegfried Farnon (Robert Hardy). The pace is leisurely, which suits the subject perfectly; so brew another pot of tea and settle in for a cozy, uplifting experience. Extras include cast biographies. --A.T. Hurley

Having enjoyed all episodes and specials released to date, Series 6 is equally delightful and wonderful. The stories are as captivating as ever, and the characters are just as endearing! If you are truly a fan of Herriot, you will not be disappointed!!! Series 6 is an absolute must in your DVD library.

As someone from west yorkshire who is marooned in New Jersey, this fantastic show is very theraputic and helps to keep the memories of home fresh in the mind. Anyhow back to the dvd, it's a cracking show and even though not as good as series 1 and 2, it's still light years aHead of any other rubbish that passes as tele these days.

What a wonderful series and for sure the last episode, titled "the Best time is now". Though we may all want to return to the nostaglic days of James Herriot, we are reminded in the last episode to seize the day ...Carpe Diem!

Fabulous from start to finish, wholesome and inspiring.

Wonderful as Usual! I love this series ever since it came out in the 80's. Why can't the U.S. make lovely,clean series like this one. Another good one is "Larkrise to Candleford" and, "Cranford." I watch these over and over while doing jigsaw puzzles.

I have the series 1-5 so was thrilled to get #6. This is by far my absolute favorite series. I also own all the books that James Harriet ( Jim White) wrote and have read them all. This DVD series follows the stories perfectly. The actors have truly captured the characters in the books.

I highly recommend all these James Harriott based All Creatures Great & Small DVDs series. Veterinary business in an 'in-your-face' real life type setting. Obviously not for all individuals, but all DVDs are not for all people either. This is farm life from birth to death; success to defeat; loving to deplorable.

This is one of the most entertaining seasons on DVD of "All Creatures." Callum and Dierdre finally tie the knot; we see Tristan for a while, after being absent from the series for a number of episodes. The quality of the photography is better than in previous years; no more of the video in interior shots and disjointed film for outdoor shots. Now, it's all on video. A must for your "All Creatures" collection.

I saw this when it was first on back in the 70's. When I finally saw that it was on DVD I bought all the seasons and the extras,2 movie's and a final season done in 1990 which includes a get together of most if the original cast members. I love the show. Its funny yet serious and if you watch it enough you want to be a country Vet and think you can do most of the work yourself.
