has been created to answer some of the more
common questions that fans write to me with. I'll
be adding to it as I think of more questions.
many episodes of "A Country Practice"
In it's entire
12-year run, 1058 hour-long episodes were made
for Channel Seven (see the Pan Room). After that was cancelled
in 1993, an additional 30 episodes were made for
Channel 10 (see Morgue).
2. I was
watching ACP and there was a big bush fire and
then all of a sudden all of my favorite regular
characters were gone...what happened?!?
The big bush fire
that you witnessed was the bush fire that
destroyed the hospital and ended the original
Channel Seven ACP series. Chances are any
episodes you saw after that were from the Channel
10 series -- most of the actors chose not to move
to Melbourne to continue on in the new series and
the producers chose to try minimize the effects
of their loss by barely mentioning them at all.
It's confusing to us because we who are watching
the episodes now are seeing them every week day
-- keep in mind that when they originally aired,
there was a gap of several months between the
airing of the final episode of the original
series and the airing of the first episode of the
second series (see Morgue for more info about the
3. Do you
have more information about [insert
ACP actor's name here] and
what they've been up to since they left ACP? Do
you know where I can write to them?
I do have some
information about what various cast members have
been up to since "A Country Practice".
I'm in the process of compiling this information
into a biography
for each actor. Each page will include a fan mail
address if I have one. Please be patient with me
and wait until I've uploaded the information I
have...I don't have the time right now to
individually email this information upon request.
4. Do you
have any pictures on this web site? Can you tell
me where they all are?
There are quite a
few pictures on this web site but they are not
all collected in one place. I could tell
you in great detail where all the pictures are
but that wouldn't be any fun (for me, anyway).
Besides, pictures are added, moved, and deleted
all the time -- I would be spending so much time
telling you where they were that I wouldn't have
time for anything else. I can tell you
that you'll find pictures in the Gilroy Wing, the
Pan Room, the Duty Roster, and the Supply Room
right now but pictures may crop up anywhere else
on the web site at a moment's notice -- if you
don't explore, you may miss some.
there discussion groups or chat rooms devoted to
"A Country Practice" that I can join?
Why, yes, yes
there are. There is an ACP mailing list at
Onelist, where you can send emails to and receive
emails from other ACP fans. It was created by
Jodie Darlington and you can join it by going to
Onelist at http://www.onelist.com/subscribe/acp. There is also a
forum/chat room set up for ACP fans at Delphi.
