Storyline

Follow the highs and lows of the townsfolk of Wandin Valley. This drama TV series revolves around the daily happenings of a 'small town' rural Australian hospital, its doctors, nurses, patients, and pretty much everyone else in the locale. A heart-warming Australian drama series that at times will see you laughing hysterically and at other times crying rivers. Well worth watching. Written by bjhmelton

The greatest.
30 November 2005 | by ratzcatcherSee all my reviews

A Country Practice is in my opinion the GREATEST drama series of all time. This show began before i was born and with a magnificent cast including Anne Tenney, Shane Porteous, Brian Wenzel, Joyce Jacobs, the late Syd Heylen and Gordon Piper as well as Georgie Parker entertained millions over viewers over a 12 year period. I still cant believe the show got the chop. It was bought by another network and reworked but the show was never the same. It should have stayed with seven and never should have been axed. In this day and age where many Australian dramas are getting axed and very few survive, illustrates just how magnificent this program was. ACP was axed in 1993. The 1994 version in my mind and many other die hard fans never existed and everyone goes on about how great Blue Heelers is but let me tell you A Country Practice in terms of size was a zillion times better. Fantastic to see so many old A Country Practice stars appear on All Saints in recent times. A long time favourite gone but never ever forgotten. Thankyou James Davern for creating such a wonderful series.
