All Creatures Great And Small 2020 season 1
A rural veterinarian from Yorkshire, with love and humor, talks about pets and their relationship with humans, and shares with readers memories of episodes encountered in the practice of a veterinarian. Despite the seemingly rather prosaic plots, the doctor's attitude to four-legged patients and their owners - sometimes warm and lyrical, sometimes sarcastic - is conveyed very subtly, with great humanity and humor.
All Creatures Great And Small 2020 season 1 episodes list:
Fresh out of veterinary college in 1937, James Herriot struggles to find work in his Depression-struck home town of Glasgow. Seeking new opportunities, he pursues a position in the remote village of Darrowby working for eccentric local vet Siegfried Farnon, who is less than impressed by his early efforts. However, a difficult calving gives James a chance to prove his worth.
Siegfried's younger brother Tristan joins the practice after graduating from Edinburgh veterinary college. James finds himself begrudgingly taking the new arrival with him on his rounds, which leads to a disastrous clash of over how to treat a cow suffering from milk fever. On their return to the practice, they find that Mrs Hall has guessed that Tristan is not being entirely honest about his sudden arrival. Elsewhere, James makes a good impression on a wealthy widow and her beloved Pekingese.
Siegfried applies to become attending vet at Darrowby racecourse - but the position comes with conditions, and he is torn between his ambition and his loyalty to the practice. Tristan collects the debts owed to the surgery, but ends up losing all the money and resorts to placing a risky bet to cover up his mistake. When the favourite to win on the race day is diagnosed with a inoperable condition, James has his first painful experience of having to put an animal down - only to end up being threatened with legal action by the owner.
