Jamie Bamber in 'Peak Practice'


At long last, we have Jamie in Peak Practice! zegeekgirl and I have referred to the series as the Holy Grail. The elusive performance neither of us have been able to track down accept for a couple of brief clips many moons ago. Series 6 was released on DVD in the UK late last year, but Jamie appeared in the final series, Series 12, so we're probably looking at 2013 for a release. But lucky for us, ddt73 has tracked down most, if not all, of the episodes featuring Jamie. We FINALLY get to see Dr. Matt Kendall in action!


Jamie Bamber on Peak Practice - S12E05
Uploaded by ddt73. - Classic TV and last night's shows, online.


I chose to embed the first episode not because it's Jamie's first episode, but because of the final thirty seconds featuring The Kiss. The rest of the episodes are available HERE at ddt73's Live Journal or HERE at Dailymotion.

My general thoughts: Jamie looks very pretty! But in the battle of the Matt's, Matt the Copper appears to be far better at his job the Matt the Doctor. Though, Dr. Matt get to show off his lovely arms far more. And maybe because America gave the world Grey's Anatomy (do I need to apologize? ;), Peak Practice seems rather timid and boring in comparison. Still, not nearly as painful to sit through as some of his other TV and film appearances.

Now go forth and discuss. Or squee about the superficial. I recommend the latter.

What ever are we going to quest for now? What now, Indy?! XD

Do note, folks, that these clips are ONLY Jamie's bits. Still, even out of the context of the whole episodes (and despite the utterly ridiculous way the ended this show) I'm sticking with my goofily-concocted fake Dr. Matt bio I cooked up as a laugh to thumb my nose at not being able to find the show for so long. *giggle* Because on any soap - even a mediocre one - I resent the practice of bringing hot bike-riding doctors on only to write them so poorly. Plenty of leeway still for him to ditch country living, run off to join Doctors Without Borders, and come back to England wiser but no less hot (not unlike the best bits of John Carter and Doug Ross put together)…

Stop looking at me like that, guys. I haven’t>/i> thought about this, really. At all.

I don't know! Did the BSG Season 4 gag reel ever surface? We could start looking for that. :)

I suspect it's a good thing we aren't seeing the full episodes, especially after seeing the clips of Matt's Very Special Episode dealing with the angers of diet pills....while trying to set two people up on a date.

*GRINNING* So much love for that yummy at the end and not a few adorable little looks from Jamie throughout. YAY!!! :D:D:D

Did you watch the rest of the clips yet? He looks adorable in the scene in which the cap above was taken as well. :)

well, i subscribe to that after seeing the clips from the episodes. then again Matt the copper is a bit older, a bit wiser and has a gun and a badge.
still, is nice to see stuff that we didn't before.

Um just to point out one tiny thing (please don't take it the wrong way) Matt the copper doesn't have a gun. The British police force routinely does not have armed weapons - there are specialist squads for that.

But you are totally right about the older and the wiser aspect!

why would i mind? I have no real info about the subject of British police and loaded guns and I should thank you that now i know more than I did this morning. I can only say in my defense that my comment was more on the figurative part of things.

Matt D is definitely more experienced in his chosen profession than Matt K. Just poor Matt D had a heck of a first day on the job pronouncing a woman dead when she wasn't! And then he seemed to make a questionable calls in each subsequent case which made me wonder why he was seemingly sought after by the practice? Then again, we are missing sizable parts of the episodes and maybe the other doctors sat around discussing why he was so desirable...other than for the obvious. ;)

My. That was quite a kiss.

Cute character. Jamie's adorable of course. It's funny to see the same little smiles and mannerisms popping up through the years in different genres and on his face at different ages. I haven't yet gone back and rewatched BSG since I got on my Bamber kick, but I'm curious now to see Apollo now that I've seen him as so many other folk.

DAMN! Now THAT'S what I call McDreamy

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Patrick Dempsey but Jamie was definitely a fine specimen

Around 2:45 I may or may not have rewound a few times to admire the rear view! He can make a pair of jeans sing! RAWR

Re: the kiss. Should I feel bad for wanting to snatch that chick out the way and tell her to take a number? Line forms behind me

Can we PLEASE have one shot of Matt Devlin in jeans? Or shirtless?

I think several of us fans have made that request of L&O:UK's head writer. ;) Maybe in Series 5 or 6 she'll finally accommodate us.
