Peak TV

In response to last week’s letter (‘Filmed where?’), the early days Peak Practice was filmed mainly in the Crich area where fake shop fronts were painted on to buildings for outside shots of “Cardale”, the surgery was at Fritchley, and the local pub at South Wingfield.

Later on the set moved to Ashover. Other Derbyshire towns and villages were used for specific stories.

Derbyshire Times readers may remember a mock up front page from 1994 to accompany a storyline.

ITV tried to replace it with another Derbyshire medical drama Sweet Medicine filmed at Wirksworth, but it never became as popular.
