GREAT Creatures Great and Small!

by Jean on 3/6/2009

I bought this for my parents, who were big fans of the show when it was on the air, and they LOVE it. Granted, they already owned Series 1 through 3 (a.k.a. Seasons 1-3) and loved them, but with Series 4 came a casting change in the role of Helen. My parents didn't remember the second Helen as fondly, but now that they are actually watching the episodes with the replacement actress, they have found that they love the fourth season just as much as the first three. They are also now going to purchase Series 5, 6, and 7. (They told me just two months ago that they had all the episodes they ever liked, but now realize they want them all!) Read More

Product Overview

Series Four continues the story of James Herriot (Christopher Timothy), his wife Helen (now played by Linda Bellingham) and his volatile but warm-hearted partner, Siegfried Farnon (Robert Hardy). The setting is now the early Fifties, and the Dales are still suffering from the bleak austerity that gripped all England after World War II. Now that Tristan (Peter Davison) has landed an exalted position in the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, the Darrowby practice recruits a young Scottish vet Calum (John McGlynn), who arrives by motorcycle with a badger in his luggage.
