Robert Hardy played a wonderful character in one of my favorite TV series in the late 70s; “All Creatures Great and Small“. Siegfried Farnon was the head veterinarian in the village of Darrowby in the Yorkshire Dales, England. The series was taken from the books by James Herriot.
I just heard of his passing (August 3, 2017) from my sister (who also loved the show). I think I need to read the books again.
