Young James starts the series and his time at Glasgow Vet School by annoying the professors, losing his lodgings and entangling himself in the case of a sick horse and a poor wee boy and his dad. Along the way, he’s befriended by a feisty female student – all rebellious curls and women’s lib – and a highly irritating, mean-spirited posh boy who desperately needs several slaps in the face.
There’s nothing exciting about any of this; it’s all relatively inoffensive, pleasant enough fare, with some “ishoos” rammed in to try and give it a bit of edge. Not all that successfully, it has to be said: it’s about as edgy as a giant bag of cotton wool.
In fairness, the cast is great, the accents are credible and the whole thing is perfectly watchable, but why is it on 3 days in a row again? It’s an undemanding way to pass an hour on a Sunday night, with a cup of tea or a basket of ironing, but I can’t imagine anyone sitting breathlessly on the edge of their sofa, desperate for the next instalment. I’ll probably watch the remaining episodes, but I can’t see it being worth another review, so comments on the whole series are welcome on this thread instead.
