Did You Know?


Fiona Gillies was the producers' first choice to play Clare Shearer when the character was introduced in 1997. However, she was expecting a baby at the time and so was unable to accept the role, which instead went to Yolanda Vazquez. When Vasquez decided to leave at the end of the 1997 series, the producers debated whether to kill off her character, but instead they approached Fiona Gillies. This time she was free to take over the role. See more »


Alice North had her gall-bladder removed twice during the series: firstly in Series 1 Peak Practice: Listening Skills (1993) and then again in Series 5 Peak Practice: Letting Go (1997). See more »

An excellent drama
10 July 2002 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I have been watching Peak Practice for several years now and is one of the better dramas of recent years. I was shocked and annoyed when the makers of this show, Carlton, decided to axe it after 9 years, despite it attracting 7 million viewers.

This series, which is made in the same county as I live, is being axed as Carlton says they have ran out of storylines. A lot of different medical issues have been covered during its duration.

The cast has changed several times over the years and the last series included Simon Sheperd, one of the original stars who had only just returned to the series after a few years' absence. This programme also made a star of Karl Davies who played landlord's son Nick Pullen. He now plays Robert Sugden in Emmerdale. Guest stars to have appeared include Keith Barren (The Land That Time Forgot, Duty Free), John Rhys Davies (The Living Daylights, Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Linda Baron (Open All Hours).

I enjoyed watching this series and it will be greatly missed.

Rating: 4 and a half stars out of 5.
