In 1937, a young, newly-qualified surgeon arrives in the picturesque village of Darrowby to take up his first job in the established veterinary practice of Siegfried and Tristan Farnon. But in rural Yorkshire, with few medicines available, the treatment of sick animals still seems to be rooted in the Dark Ages. This, together with the country-folk's inherent suspicion of strangers, poses problems for James Herriot in the early years of his career.
Gradually, James establishes himself with the people of Darrowby and is made a partner in the veterinary practice. He courts and eventually marries Helen and becomes a family man. And over the next 20 years, James, his family and friends share in the joys and heartaches of caring for the many wonderful creatures that become part of their world.
Based on the best-selling novels by James Herriot.
Peter Davison (Tristan Farnon)
Robert Hardy (Siegfried Farnon)
