James Herriot (Christopher Timothy) is a vet in Yorkshire, England, during the 1940's. He is assigned to the practice of Siegfried Farnon (Robert Hardy), who (together with his mischievous brother Tristan) already have a successful business. James undergoes a variety of adventures during his work, which are just as often caused by the characters of the county (including the Farnon brothers) as the animals in his care.

Use to watch this when it was first shown on TV, thought it was really hilarious. Now I'm watching the reruns on sky, and still find it a joy to watch!!!
