FORGIVE my using this site to do some trawling for vital – though some might say trivial – information.
You may remember a BBC TV series in the 1980s called A Very Peculiar Practice, starring Peter Davison. It was set in a medical centre on a “modern” university campus and remains one of my all-time favourite shows, brilliantly acted by Davison and the other cast members, with superb writing by Andrew Davies.
So I recently decided it was time to watch it again, and started searching for the DVD on the web, as you do. And here’s what I found: only season one has been released, and if you can find a copy it’ll cost you eighty quid! Now, it was a brilliant series, but not that good!
So, what’s going on? Why weren’t both seasons (and the one-off sequel, A Very Polish Practice) released? And why are copies of season one so apparently rare that they cost more than the seven-season boxset of The West Wing?
If anyone has any information, I’d appreciate it. Thanks for your time. I’ll be off now.
