Review

Anyone wondering why EastEnders’ Ted Murray (Christopher Timothy) hasn’t returned to reclaim his house from drug dealer Evie now has the answer: he’s still on this road trip with Peter Davison. No previews were available, but in their final outing, they’re taking in the Rhondda Valley, the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia, all of which allows Timothy to catch up with one of his oldest friends.

The series has been relaxing and engaging, so perhaps other 1980s TV favourites should get a shot at something similar. The cast of Hi-De-Hi! sample Great British Holiday Camps? Great British Boating Holidays with Jan and Ken from Howards’ Way? They’re probably already in production.

Summary

All Creatures Great and Small stars Christopher Timothy and Peter Davison conclude their series of vintage road trips by travelling into the Rhondda Valley, across the Brecon Beacons, and finally into Snowdonia in their classic 1930s Morgan 4/4. Along the course of their Welsh odyssey, they discover the origins of the AA, which prove far more subversive than expected, recreate a vintage speed trap, and hitch a lift to the top of the world's biggest slate mine, before catching up with one of Christopher's oldest friends. Last in the series.
