A Very Peculiar Practice still very brilliant, 18 Dec 2011
A brilliant black comedy with standout performances from a range of top notch (mainly british)actors. While the main underlying theme is the destruction of the humanist university culture in favour of a user pays right wing one that typified thacher's britain,there are many engaging self contained stories and engrossing romantic arcs, especially in second season.has not lost any of it's bite since first aired 25yrs ago. The spin off A Very Polish Practice not as good and more serious in tone, but worth a look just to see fate of those characters depicted--namely Stephen,Grete and Bob Buzzard.
