Info
A 2020 adaptation of James Herriot’s endearing memoirs of his days as a veterinarian in a small village in Yorkshire, England.
In 1937, James Herriot, a recent graduate of Glasgow Veterinary College, applies for a job in Darrowby, a fictional village in Yorkshire. He is hired by the irascible but kindly town veterinarian, Siegfried Farnon. James is boarded in Siegfried’s home, run by super-efficient Mrs. Hall. Also present is Siegfried’s irrepressible young brother, Tristan, a veterinary student who has trouble passing his exams. Supervised carefully by Siegfried, James hones his skills treating a wide variety of creatures and, more importantly, begins to earn the trust of the patients. In this small village, the locals struggle to get along. James encounters a wide variety of experiences: helping a cow give birth, dealing with the wealthy, Mrs. Pumphrey, who has her own weight-reducing diet for her Pekingese dog, and even checking out the pets competing in a contest at the Darrowby Fair. James defied his mother who preferred he live in a large city and get an office job. He feels fulfilled and happy that he made the right decision.

Accolades
  • The series was such a huge success that a second series will start filming in 2021.
There’s a sense of renewed spirit with each new episode not because this is a veterinary procedural that always hits the reset button, but because it’s fashioned around people who take pride in the pursuit of improving the lives of those around them.

The show arrives like something of a long-lost treasure with all the values, all that was ever worth prizing in it, fully intact.
