Trivia
Originally Larry Lamb was due to join the regular cast in Series 4 (1996), playing Dr Richard Carey, with Jane Wymark playing his wife. However their characters were dropped after four episodes had been filmed; some scenes in those episodes had to be edited or re-shot. New producer Richard Handford left abruptly and Michele Buck (producer of earlier series) was asked to return.

When the scriptwriters wrote the cliffhanger ending to Series 12, in which Alex and Claire fell (presumably to their deaths) over the side of a quarry, they expected that there would be another series. However the producers subsequently decided not to make another series feeling that Peak Practice had outlived its usefulness and leaving the fate of these two characters forever unknown.
