[Editor's Note: The following is a review of ALL THINGS WISE AND WONDERFUL, available individually and as part of this boxed set.]--Christopher Timothy played James Herriot in the beloved BBC series "All Creatures Great and Small." Here Timothy reprises his role as the young country vet in this third collection of Herriot stories. While training to be a Royal Air Force pilot in the midst of WWII, Herriot muses on his life in the Yorkshire dales. Sit back with a cup of tea as Timothy tells you funny, gentle, and occasionally sad tales about characters such as local farmers with broad accents; the posh Mrs. Pomphrey, whose overfed Pomeranian passes gas; and the Ministry of Agriculture officials, who rake James over the coals for inept form-filling. Timothy develops countless individual voices with different class accents, and all are perfect. An absolute joy. A.B.
