All Creatures Great and Small star Carol Drinkwater compares the iconic original with the Channel 5 re-boot
All Creatures Great and Small is currently enjoying something of a revival on Channel 5 but what was it like to work on the original iconic series? Carol Drinkwater played Helen, James Herriot's wife alongside Christopher Timothy, Robert Hardy and Peter Davidson. The show became a huge hit around the world and together with other shows like Emmerdale Farm and Last of the Summer Wine, helped to put the beautiful county of Yorkshire on the world map. Carol's been reminiscing with Ashley and telling him what she makes of the successful Channel 5/PBS re-boot which is made by production company Playground Entertainment.
