PBS Holiday Gift Guide: All Creations Great & Small Season 1

Today, I wanted to share with you one gift idea you MUST get. I'm sure you will all agree that All Creations Great & Small Season 1 is a Masterpiece. This series was extraordinary, funny, and would make the perfect holiday gift.

All Creatures Great and Small” follows the exciting adventures of a veterinarian in the 1930s in Yorkshire, England. Based on the beloved autobiographical books by James Herriot, the series has quickly become a fan favorite and will be back for a second season. 

In 1937, when James Herriot was fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College, he followed his dream to become a vet in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales, one of England’s most beloved and beautiful landscapes. He soon discovers that treating the animals is as much about treating their owners, and the Dales’ farmers are a tough crowd to please. At Skeldale House, James gets to know his newly formed dysfunctional family. The chaotic and erratic boss Siegfried Farnon, his wayward brother Tristan, and the shrewd Mrs. Hall, who is endlessly steering the ship. When local beauty Helen Alderson attracts James’s attention, he finds another, more enduring reason to stay in the Dales. Best
MASTERPIECE: All Creatures Great and Small” has a run time of approximately 400 minutes on 2 discs. The DVD SRP is $49.99 and the Blu-ray SRP is $59.99. The DVD and Blu-ray versions are available now.

In my opinion:

I loved All Creations Great and Small from the beginning to the end. I'm so glad it will be back for a second season because there was a cliffhanger. This Masterpiece follows a Vet named James Herriot who follows his dream in Yorkshire Dales. If you haven't been to England, you are missing out on a beautiful and magnificent country. Yorkshire Dales is in Northern England (my husband is from Horsham).

I loved the characters especially when I see actors/actresses from other Masterpiece films.  James is kind, loving and, patient. The other characters he meets are Siegfried (Samuel West from Mr. Selfridge), his brother Tristan (Callum Woodhouse from The Durrells), and the housekeeper Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley). There is another character who becomes quite vital to the story. Her name is Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton). Her relationship with James is sweet and I'm hoping for some romance in the next series.

Overall, it was well written and I enjoyed every episode. I definitely recommend it to everyone. It would be the perfect gift this holiday season.
