Trivia

When the scriptwriters wrote the cliffhanger ending to season twelve, in which Alex and Claire fell (presumably to their deaths) over the side of a quarry, they expected that there would be another season. However, the producers subsequently decided not to make another season, feeling that Peak Practice had outlived its usefulness, and leaving the fate of these two characters forever unknown.

User Reviews

 
A truly excellent and heart warming drama series

It saddens me that this lovely series was axed after 9 years, it was excellent, beautiful and heart warming. It had fantastic, well written and engaging story lines, clever and touching writing and sweet, relaxing music. It also had the advantage of being gorgeously filmed, the countryside of Derbyshire is absolutely beautiful and really added to Peak Practice's charm.

Then it had consistently strong direction, and wonderful performances from a talented cast including Saskia Wickman, Simon Shepherd, Amanda Burton, Adrian Lukis, Karl Davies, Maggie O' Neill and Kevin Whately.

Overall, a wonderful drama series, if anything it should have lasted longer. 10/10 Bethany Cox
