A Very Peculiar Practice: The Complete Series
  • Description

    Lowlands University is a swamp of fear and loathing. A showpiece Sixties campus looking increasingly anachronistic in the paranoid, profit-driven Eighties, it is staffed by angst-ridden academics desperate to hang onto their privileged status amid swinging cutbacks. It also houses what may well be the worst medical practice in the British Isles. Fresh-faced Stephen Daker (Peter Davison) sees his new job at the Medical Centre as a chance to pursue excellence among a dedicated team. He s somewhat shaken when he meets his colleagues: the once-great Jock McCannon (Graham Crowden), practice head, proponent of alternative psychiatry, and a wildly unpredictable dipsomaniac; public school-educated fascist Bob Buzzard (David Troughton); and Rose Marie (Barbara Flynn), an uber-feminist who sees illness as something men do to women. Dark secrets, sinister experiments, demented academics, STD epidemics, the Yankee Dollar, a desperate Creative with writer's block and a couple of nuns all conspire to make life on campus a hair-raising experience for Stephen. Andrew Davies surreal, searingly funny look at sexual politics, medical malpractice and academic rivalry at the height of the Thatcher era won huge acclaim and a BAFTA nomination for Best Drama Series. This set comprises both series and A Very Polish Practice, the 1992 sequel film which finds Stephen coping with life in post-Communism Warsaw.

What goes around comes around

Twenty five (or so) years on, the several series in this set and their underlying themes are just as apposite as they were then. The principal characters in A Very Peculiar Practice may be chosen to represent particular personalities and attitudes, but they are extremely well played.
