Probably the worst UK TV drama series of all time, the short and unhappy broadcasting life of "Sweet Medicine" says it all. The first episode opened in a blaze of publicity at a peak-time slot on Thursday night. Long before Episode 10, the final episode, the series had been buried in the graveyard slot, 11.20 on a Sunday night. Supposedly, a more sophisticated and adult version of "Peak Practice", the popular and long-running show it replaced, "Sweet Medicine" was filled with unlikeable characters doing uninteresting things. It was a monumental error of judgement by Carlton and the ITV Network Centre and fully deserves its place in the "TV Turkeys Hall of Fame".
