All Creatures Great and Small

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to the ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ page on ‘Bradley’s Basement’.

This is the BBC drama series where I was first introduced to Peter Davison before seeing him in ‘Doctor Who’. Ironically, it was what Peter Davison did before he starred in ‘Doctor Who’. It’s a series about vets in the 1930s/40s/50s, based on the books by British veterinary surgeon, James Herriot.

The series lasted for seven seasons spreading across from 1977 to 1990. It stars Christopher Timothy as James Herriot with Robert Hardy as Siegfried Farnon and Peter Davison as Tristan Farnon. It also stars Carol Drinkwater and subsequently Lynda Bellingham who played Helen, James Herriot’s wife.

I first saw this series in 2003 when my Dad purchased the initial DVD releases of ‘All Creatures’ including Seasons 1 and 2. We now have the complete ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ series in a lavish DVD box set. If you’re a Peter Davison fan, then you should definitely check out this TV series.

I’ll be re-watching and reviewing this TV series as I go through each episode of the seven seasons in ‘All Creatures’. Please feel free to check out; read and comment on my reviews for each episode.

Enjoy! 🙂
