All Creatures Great and Small

In a poll by Dalesman, Yorkshire's favourite magazine, viewers were asked to name their favourite show either set or made in the county. More than 3,000 votes were cast - and the veterinary drama starring Christopher Timothy and Robert Hardy and filmed largely in the Yorkshire Dales was the runaway winner, taking 7.3 per cent of the overall vote. Actor Christopher Timothy, who played James Herriot expressed delight that the drama had topped the poll - and said he had spoken to people who were considering a remake. He said the long-running series remained much-loved thanks to the man he played on screen, Thirsk vet Alf Wight, who was better known by his pen name James Herriot. The series endured, he told the Dalesman: "Because Alf Wight was first and foremost a great storyteller, bottom line, he told great stories".
