Bought this on dvd, as I wasn't alive to view it on it's original transmission. A total head-fuck. Sinister and debauched. Rosemary's Baby for the suburban, upper-middle class. Mary Whitehouse must've been off her tits not to rise up in fury.

Love this show. Peter and Robert had great chemistry and were so believable in a role a lot of siblings take in real life, one might be a bit of an overachiever, the other might be a bit of a slacker. I love how often they would put poor James in the middle of their constant arguing. And Peter was supposed to only be in it for a few episodes, but after Christopher got hit by a car they had to give Tristan more to do! And even though it was certainly not pleasant for  Chris, it was great that Peter was made a regular cast member!

Thank God Peter Davison played Tristan.  Nobody else could have. Ha Ha, I remember that scene with that cat.

I still think this was the best series I've ever seen( with the exception of the later shows, which were just a bad rehash of the imperishable originals)\r Genuine, human characters in real life situations and, I hesitate using the word, but a lesson or moral to each episode, that was done so without being preachy.\r So glad they made the shows when they did. I shudder to think what these would look like in todays world.

Hmm.. I think Thirsk would best be described as a town rather than a village.

I'm reading this book now, I can't help but picturing these actors, and It's hard trying to suppress my cackling in public. The description of the rubber suit at 5:58 was hilarious.

@bigwoolleypenguin Yes Sigried had a moustache but that wasn't during the Series. After S3, they recorded two movies, one in '83 and one in '85. The movie made in in ''85 he had a moustache!. So your memory is till ok!\r

@hezkyden Surgery was from 6 to 7 O'Clock, as Mrs Hall told him,so he evidently went for surgery outside those hours.

A British show I had never heard of became my favorite show of all time over the course of a month. I've never been to England (American) but somehow this show makes me homesick for a place and time I've never experienced.

@lordpatthethird \r \r As far as I'm aware, only the TV series and special episodes were made with the cast in the video above. However, some films were made with a different cast - just search on Wikipedia for the details. :)

Robert Hardy... such a good actor and so charismatic, could hardly think of a better Siegfied\r \r Peter Davison.... seems born to play this part, what a fabulous Tristan. He made it his own\r \r Christopher Timothy was incredibly lucky to get the part. Thank god he didn't play Tristan! \r \r Thankfully the central character in a series like this is neutral and so doesn't need to be played by a good actor and he didn't actually ruin it.

The 'All Creatures' series was set in the fictional village of Darrowby. The real James Herriot practised in the village of Thirsk, but Askrigg was the village used in the TV series, with countryside locations filmed in Swaledale and Wensleydale. I don't think the documentary can be purchased, although I know the TV series is available on the online BBC shop.

I've pretty much seen every episode of the series from the first series all the way through to the end, and I've never seen him with a moustache, although Seigfried is my favourite character!

It must be fairly recent, because I recorded it on the 3rd February 2008.

I really want to see this, mostly because I Peter Davison, but also because I love pretty much any non-traditional comedy.
