  1. Terry, would have to be pre 1934 because of the bicycle wings, that car looks like fun!
  2. Here it is; all creatures great and small series 2 episode six faint hearts BYW the opening shots have Watersplash in it! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwi20cXmu5_uAhUSR6wKHYkbD5gQwqsBMAB6BAgCEAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailymotion.com%2Fvideo%2Fx5rtx2z&usg=AOvVaw2bv2avieeScOlJKjZAe1x0
  3. Something you should know about in that 1978-90's series. The actors under vet supervision were allowed to do many more procedures on the animals than they are today. Everything in that series really seemed real which was the goal, including dented cars. A example; James and Tristan are called out to remove a growth on a colt. There was a miscommunication and when they get to the farm they find out that this colt is a six year old stallion, a mean stallion. When Christopher Timothy ( James Herriot) gets into the loose box with this horse the horse starts lashing out with his hind leg nearing s
  4. Anyone know what kind of car Julia Taviner is driving? This shot 1978-1990's series she is mauling Tristan while Mrs. Hall and friends look on in horror just outside of Skeldale House ( in the real town called Askrigg ). ASKRIGG's Skeldale house was Siegfried's house and surgery in that series ( shot through three decades)was In Darrowby In the books and in T.V. they live in Darrowby. In real life they live in Thirsk. In the books Siegfried and Tristan have a mother that lives in Broughton. In real life their mother lived in Harrogate.
  5. Are you referring to the 1978-1991 series? If you are, that's not the case.
  6. Like I said above Charles; Though both "A" bodies are the same body length from the cowl back, but Chevrolet has 115" wheelbase and Pontiac is 120". It's all in the front end for the straight eight. Hood and front fenders are longer. Longer means weight and leveraged weight multiplies. If fact Oldsmobile "A" body wheelbase is 1/2" shorter than Pontiac as well.
  7. Reverse Continental kit; Two wheeler with a continental kit
  8. And even though not offered in those days a back up camera would have to be a must!
  9. The Austin 12/4 destroying the Darrowby golf club hut. Obviously these cars were not pristine to do things like this to.

  11. Fore Gill Gate near Langthwaite, North Yorkshire is right next to Watersplash. Watersplash is pictured in Herriot's picture book James Herriot's Yorkshire and the caption says Watersplash. It is a local term, The only way I found it was to ask in the pub in Langthwaite Famous for being a location used in the opening titles of the 1970's tv series 'All creatures great and small'. Located high on the moors in the Yorkshire Dales. There is Fore gate with watersplash in the foreground.
  12. Which show? In the original series the cars were often muddy, like in real life. Tristan drives the Morris eight tourer right through the back of their garage ( all shown on TV ). In another episode we see Siegfried has the flu, and James's car in in the garage so Tristan has to Borrow Siegfried's new Rover to take James on his rounds. So Tristan is driving really fast, looks at James, looks back to the road and there is a shepherd and a flock of sheep in the road. We next see the Rover with both left wings badly damaged and both left side doors ripped off lying on the ground. Needless t
  13. John, I'm not so sure. Though both "A" bodies are the same body length from the cowl back, but Chevrolet has 115" wheelbase and Pontiac is 120". It's all in the front end for the straight eight. Hood and front fenders are longer. Longer means weight and leveraged weight multiplies. If fact Oldsmobile "A" body wheelbase is 1/2" shorter than Pontiac as well.
  14. I have seen many interviews with the original cast, plus staring in series 4 Carol Drinkwater was replaced by Lynda Bellingham, and there was a new vet added based on a assistant to the practice who's name was Calum Buchanan ( a mate of Tristan's in vet. college ) - real life John McGlynn. James: Siegfried has been in one of those silent, uncommunicative moods recently. Tristan: That means he’s brooding. James: …You haven’t been up to anything have you? Tristan: I don’t know, have I? Robert Hardy in a interview dictated to the producer Bill Sellars that things had
  15. Hood springs for sure. In the mean time a hood stay.
