The episode where Molly Jones dies of cancer was one of the highest rating in the series history. Although the rating system of the day was antiquated, the episode rated in the high 30s which equates to more than a 30 per cent share of all prime time viewing, across five free to air networks - in US terms, roughly equivalent to an episode of Charlie's Angels at the height of its popularity. It dominated newspaper front pages of the day, and is still one of the most discussed episodes of Australian TV. See more »
A Country Practice is in my opinion the GREATEST drama series of all time. This show began before i was born and with a magnificent cast including Anne Tenney, Shane Porteous, Brian Wenzel, Joyce Jacobs, the late Syd Heylen and Gordon Piper as well as Georgie Parker entertained millions over viewers over a 12 year period. I still cant believe the show got the chop. It was bought by another network and reworked but the show was never the same. It should have stayed with seven and never should have been axed. In this day and age where many Australian dramas are getting axed and very few survive, illustrates just how magnificent this program was. ACP was axed in 1993. The 1994 version in my mind and many other die hard fans never existed and everyone goes on about how great Blue Heelers is but let me tell you A Country Practice in terms of size was a zillion times better. Fantastic to see so many old A Country Practice stars appear on All Saints in recent times. A long time favourite gone but never ever forgotten. Thankyou James Davern for creating such a wonderful series.
