Product Overview

Series Five continues the story 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. 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.

Review I know it sounds very boring. A television series based on the life of a small town vet in the 1930s produced by the BBC. Doesn't exactly pound the pulse when I relate it, does it? However, there is quite a bit more to it than that. I have honestly not read the stories by Herriot, but there must be something to them because they translate very well to the small screen. Timothy's character has quite a bit to do with that. In his performance, he created such a wonderful combination of naivete and earnest optimism that you just fall instantly in love with him. This makes it all the better because we get to see him grow in his practice and his personal life as the season progresses...I really believe that you will find yourself wrapped in the life of James Herriot rather quickly.
