Life rolls by at a pretty easy pace in the verdant Yorkshire Dales. Unless, of course, you're Darrowby's resident vet, James Herriot. With all manner of agricultural and domestic animal ailments to attend to, life's never short of surprises. Whether treating a tricky boxer, or retrieving a cheque-book from a hungry goat, you'd think James's glass would be full enough. And that's without the involvement of his irascible partner Siegfried and the bumbling young Tristan. But even in the quiet Dales you can't hide forever, and with storm clouds brewing over Europe James has to decide - to stay, or to go? So why not join them in the farmyard now - life's never going to be the same again.
