Overview

Synopsis

The second season of the warm-hearted BBC medical series All Creatures Great & Small finds young veterinarian James Herriot (Christopher Timothy) gradually winning over the confidence of all the animal owners in the tiny Yorkshire farming community of Darrowby. But it is still an uphill climb; the locals are a superstitious lot who don't hold with modern methods, and James' boss Siegfried Farnon (Robert Hardy) can be a holy terror if you catch him in the wrong mood. Making life easier for our hero is the love and support of his new wife Helen (Carol Drinkwater). The season opener finds the practice swamped with work, as cats and dogs literally fall from the sky. In later episodes, Siegfried's capricious brother Tristan (Peter Davison) runs afoul of the law, James takes on the daunting task of "duty vet" at the annual Darrowby Show, a hormone treatment on a local dog yields most unexpected results; the Farnon brothers inveigle the klutzy James into representing Darrowby in the yearly cricket match with Rainby; and Christmas Day proves to be just another workday for our beleaguered vets. ~ Hal Erickson
