Based on the bestselling books by James Herriot, this long-running series is a perennial PBS hit. All Creatures Great and Small Series Seven wraps up the final installment of this heart-warming tale from the Yorkshire dales with James Herriot (Christopher Timothy), his wife Helen (Lynda Bellingham) and his volatile but warm-hearted partner, Siegfried Farnon (Robert Hardy). Life at the small veterinary practice continues to challenge the partners, whether by neglected animals or tight-fisted farmers. But through all the trails and tribulations, the social upheavals and the years gone by, friendship and family prove themselves as strong as ever.]]>

The story lines are reminiscent of the later book, with young Rosie wanting to be a Vet, James' bad purchase of netting, as well as, his attempt to build a small greenhouse. Then of course that is topped off, with Helen's bad choice of a carpet from a door to door salesman. Also, we have the young farmer with sensitive nostrils, wearing a red bandana to buy his fish and chips and gets arrested, with James bailing him out. Then we have the famous Wolfie dog that chases off the two young thieves that rob several old age pensioners, as well as many other fine examples.
There is the obvious repeat of some of the old story lines, but they are enjoyable - What is nice, is that the old incident is referenced and smoothly added to the episode. The show does take some liberties and there are several incidents that are not true to the books, but the episodes are most enjoyable.
Too bad there are only seven seasons.... Episode twelve provides a meaningful ending to the series, with our three main characters together, leaving the viewer, to find their next adventure.
The 1990 Christmas special (Brotherly Love) is very good, but more like two additional episodes - There is not much related to a Christmas season.Read more ›
We would recommend it to all watchers of great British T.V.
Mrs. Pomphrey and Wickie Woo, her pampered over-weight pekinese pooch, still rely on "Uncle James" to cure Wickie of maladies brought on by eating rich human food and not exercising. The animals still give birth, get sick, and die in ways that are portrayed very realistically or in fact, part of what made the series so engrossing for me in the first place.

Simply put - it doesn't get any better. My wife and I love this series. Somehow this programme really worked even though at times the acting is a bit ropey. Timeless!Published 8 months ago by mobwort
A continuation of the wonderful story of James Harriet in the Yorkshire Dales. Much of it was filmed on location. 45 min. episodes. Just sit back and enjoy.Published 13 months ago by Patricia Gage

I have read many of the books about "All --", and enjoyed them as well as the TV series in the past, but this one seemed a bit dated.Published 19 months ago by K. D. Groom
