Nicholas Ralph's narration is grand. His Yorkshire dialect is as genuine as the pudding, as authentic as it is possible to be while remaining comprehensible. Pulling piglets, calves, and foals into life, James Herriot, the veterinarian, is insulted by know-it-all farmers and bitten by a horse. Herriot, who is loved the world around, corresponds with an overweight Pekingese who sends him a hamper from Fortnum & Mason. A talented mimic, the star of the newer BBC production can hold the stage alone, taking both voices in an argument. Ralph expresses adoration of domesticated animals and the wild Scots who own them. Ralph channels the Herriot magic, wrapping these tough eccentrics in a light that cheers and ennobles us all. B.H.C.
