The 1951 Rolling Review Show … Midweek Melody # 79

Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.



Theme to A Very Peculiar Practice – Elkie Brooks

A Very Peculiar Practice is a BBC comedy-drama series, which ran for two series in 1986 and 1988. The series was a surreal black comedy, set in the health centre of a British university.
It starred Peter Davison, Barbara Flynn, David Troughton and Graham Crowden. The theme song was performed by Elkie Brooks and written by Dave Greenslade.

  1. Well the theme song is very nice – I have never heard of this programme but I very much like Peter Davidson so I might have to search the net later and see if I can find some episodes! Sounds very intriguing indeed.

    • It would be well worth the effort, Lucy. I think it would be right up PorterGirl’s street. And Peter Davison was born in …. 1951. Well of course he was! 😃

      • I am going to have a look tonight, after Yes Minister and perhaps before Allo Allo. How excellent that Peter Davidson is part of the club! My favourite Doctor Who ever 🙂

  2. I don’t know this show, but I remember Peter Davison as Doctor Who, although I’d stopped watching it by then.

  3. I know Peter Davison from Dr.Who but mostly as Tristan Farnon from All Things Great and Small.

  4. It was a great series. They don’t make ’em like that any more.
