Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather when I opened my daily media update from The Guardian newspaper (

"The cast of classic drama All Creatures Great and Small could be reunited to film one last episode."

Robert Hardy has to be, what, 115 by now? Actually he's only 82, but still working. IMDB shows he had roles in three feature films produced last year, and an equal number of TV programs.

The last original episode of the series was produced in 1980. If you haven't been keeping track, Peter Davison is now 55. It won't be such a shock to see him on the screen, as he's barely stopped working in the years since the program went out of production....between doctor who, campion and other BBC programs, he was always popping up on PBS. But Christopher Timothy is now 66, hasn't been as much of a presence in our imported shows, so....

This would be fun. I hope it happens. Once. And then never again. And don't even think about updating the series any of you TV producers who can't think of an original idea.

Details here.
