The early life and education of the beloved British vet "Rewarding" -The Observer (U.K.) "Enjoyable family fun" -The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.) "The ultimate in feel-good?dramas" -The Times (U.K.) Before he became famous tending animals in the Yorkshire Dales, a wide-eyed and eager James Herriot (Iain De Caestecker, The Fades) arrived at Glasgow Veterinary College to pursue the career he'd dreamed of since childhood. But the college wasn't what he had expected, nor were the faculty and his fellow students. These included the chauvinistic Professor Gunnell (Gary Lewis, Billy Elliot), a young feminist desperate to qualify as a vet (Amy Manson, Being Human), and an overprivileged young man (Ben Lloyd-Hughes, The Hour) who didn?t seem to care if he ever graduated. This inspiring drama unfolds against the backdrop of rising fascism in Europe and profound social change at home. But for young James Herriot, learning his new profession always comes first.
