** Given an entire chapter of one of the books, in which Tristan's great rapport with the notoriously crusty local farmers is revealed to be thanks to his shamelessly exaggerating how much he's suffering while treating their (admittedly often very big and heavy) animals. The farmers are so impressed by how hard Tristan is apparently working for them they go so far as to insist James not blame t'lad for mistakes.

The show followed the lives of unassuming newly-fledged vet James Herriot; his temperamental but good-natured boss, Siegfried Farnon; Siegfried's laddish younger brother, Tristan; and James' eventual wife, Helen. The {{Revival}} added Calum Buchanan, a back-to-nature Scottish vet. Other recurring characters included Mrs. Hall, the invaluable housekeeper, and Mrs Pumphrey, the eccentric owner of a spoiled Pekinese. The ThemeTune, ''Piano Parchment'', is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4NHqu64bvw particularly lovely]].

* RoadSignReversal: The 'removing road signs to confuse invading troops' version happens in one of the episodes set in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo. A local tells the soldier who is removing a sign that, if he wants to confuse the Germans, he should leave that particular sign up as it has been pointing the wrong way for years.

* ReplacementFlatCharacter: Inverted. Instead of becoming less uptight, Tristan becomes less rambunctious over the years and Calum is brought in partially to provide the necessary level of wacky hijinks. He's less of a Niles and more of a [[HappyDays Chachi]]. People unfamiliar with the source material might be surprised to learn that he was ''not'' invented for the TV adaptation; he appears in the original books, complete with badger.
