Christopher Timothy's 6 best books

The actor Christopher Timothy is best known for starring as vet James Herriot in the hit TV drama All Creatures Great And Small.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One title on the list:
The Day of the Jackal by Frederick Forsyth

I enjoyed the film, then read the book and loved it. Its clinical, detailed style takes us step by step to its (inevitable?) conclusion.

I’m not over enamoured with thrillers in general but this is truly exceptional.
Read about the other books on the list.
