Based on the books of the British veterinary surgeon Alf Wight, who wrote under the pseudonym James Herriot. It's an old saying in the film industry that one should never work with children or animals, as they never do what they are supposed to. Well, this show did, and proved it was possible, although the animals still greatly misbehaved. The series had two runs, totaling 90 episodes: the original (1978 to 1980, based directly on Herriot's books) was for three series. The second run (1988 to 1990, filmed with original scripts) for the fourth series. Since then, it has become an internationally beloved world favorite, and indeed, when viewing these now, one gets a feeling that the countryside was a glorious place inhabited by amazing people. Two or three of these episodes at the end of the day provides an escapist, gentle, heartwarming, cozy-cup-of-cocoa type drama. It's warm, simple, nice, and lovely, even educational, and it's not going to frighten the horses. Although, I should add, that all the main actors here suffered at least one anointing of having their hand up a cow.

All Creatures Series 3 perhaps the most relaxed of all
Michael Ziegler | Philadelphia, Pa United States | 10/13/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series "All Creatures Great and Small" is special beyond a doubt. The Third season of episodes finds our friends concerned about the coming war and is contemplative about life changing soon among the dales. It is the most delightful of the 3 with wonderful flute music and genuinely funny plots that have Tristan taking over kitchen duties with his usual haplessness and we are also given another "dose" of Dr. Granville Bennett,a repeating character who constantly gets our heroes drunk. Another features a dog that is subject to "gas" straying into an afternoon tea party and stinks the place up while a stock character colonel is explaining the benefits of "curry powder" in the diet. Siegfried is distant at times and eventually reveals his feelings about the coming war to James. In the end, the obligations of duty summon them both while Tristan holds up the home vet practice (Finally passing his tests.)Things were never the same again after this season and for that and the reasons stated above I believe this to be the best. Well worth your time and investment. A sure tranquilizer for our hurried times."
A wish come true

"For all of the faithful ACG&S fans another wonderful series. The first two volumes were great and the VHS quality superb. I would suspect that the brisk sales in America has prompted the producers to bring out the third volume. The first three are the best because they capture these wonderful characters just before the start of WW2. I would also like to mention that Jim Wight has written a wonderful book about his father called "The Real James Herriot" (Ballantine Books) The relationships between the actors and the "real" Herriot family is wonderful. Thanks Amazon for telling me the good news. Hello VCR. I promise I won't watch them all in one evening. ( Liar!)"

"If you are a fan of All Creatures Great and Small (ACGS), you will LOVE this newest release. It simply is terrific. Series III goes deeper, with both the characters and the storylines. Relationships are explored and, against the background of 1939 WWII Britain, the thriving practice of Farnon and Herriot offers up loads of teats. James and Helen anchor the show but certainly do not steal it. James is the consummate professional and we see him develop into a true journeyman vet, with both mistakes and miracles mixed together. His day at Grandville's garden is priceless, and James's locum at the practice of Seigfried's pal, Stewie, sets up a "colorful" day at the dog races. Siegfried falls in love, and exposes his heart in more ways than one. Tristan comes into his own as a vet and a man, yet is still capable of the idiotic behavior we've come to love. We even get to see a glimpse into the life of the stoic Mrs. Hall - her compassion as she reaches out to her family during a crisis; her steely countenance as she lurches about the pracitce following an afternoon of sherry drinking with her friends. And once again, the delightfully quirky folk of the Yorkshire Dales provide a wealth of great storylines. Vol III is a must-have for the ACGS fan. It truly is like visiting with an old friend - no pretense and wonderfully encouraging. Buy Vol III. You won't be disappointed!"
