Originally Larry Lamb was due to join the regular cast in Series 4 (1996), playing Dr Richard Carey, with Jane Wymark playing his wife. However their characters were dropped after four episodes had been filmed; some scenes in those episodes had to be edited or re-shot. New producer Richard Handford left abruptly and Michele Buck (producer of earlier series) was asked to return. See more »
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.
