This is brilliant comedy. The cast is perfect together, and the premise of a vet who doesn't like animals leads to many laughs.

A lot of work has gone into this series, into the writing, the performing, and the sets (how refreshing to see a comedy set in which the camera can actually move around!) and it pays off.
