The subject matter, acting, and settings are first rate. For those who have read Harriots books, these videos (produced by the BBC) will NOT be a disappointment. It is, of course, helpful to have viewed series 1 since the program was filmed in the chronological sequence of Harriot's life, from his graduation through his marriage and later life.
I heartily recommend this series to anyone who loves animals or has an appreciation for english humor. The films are laced generously with both.
The Actors: Christopher Timothy plays James Herriot, a Scottish newly qualified Veterinarian as co-owner with Veterinarian Surgeon Siegfried Farnon, played by Robert Hardy, in the Yorkshire farming community of Darrowby during the 1930's. Veterinary student & Siegfried's younger brother Tristan, played by Peter Davison continues to miss things up, for example: blowing up a cow in one show. The housekeeper is Mrs. Hall, played by Mary Hignett. James wife & secretary for the entire business is Helen played by Carol Drinkwater.
Commentary: The second season is more even in plot & characters than the first season.Read more ›
My rough guess would be at least 2009, before all the episodes have finally been made available ! Apparently, 1 full season is released every 2 years (1st season in '97, 2nd in '99}. Since there are 5 more seasons (60 episodes), PLUS 3, hour & 1/2 holiday-specials, it'll be a while till I can say I own all 90 episodes & specials.
