According to cast members the "big wigs behind the scenes" refused to watch any filming for the final season because the "big wigs" were figuring out how to end the show, due too budget concerns and multiple time changes to accommodate other shows including other drama series Packed To The Rafters and US repeats of Private Practice.

This series ran for 12 seasons with, approximately, 40+ episodes per season! We enjoyed the first 7.5 to 8 seasons. The storylines were best when the show had Sister Terri's ward as the central focus, and the other sections (O.R., Ambulance, etc.) orbited around it. The quality became inconsistent when the shows main focus switched, first, to the E.R. and then to the Air Medics in seasons 9-12. We really liked some of the actors and characters, and, so we figured we'd live with some episodes being really bad compared to the, overall, high-quality of the majority of the episodes. We'd lived in Australia for quite a while, so it was fun to watch a foreign show and understand all the slang and little things sometimes lost in translation. The show has heart, humor, horror, and, on occasion, a bit of unexpected over-the-top melodrama. Generally, though, this show doesn't have that "too slick" or "too contrived" feel some American shows have.
