Genius doc overcomes hurdles
The Good Doctor, Seven, Tuesday at 8.30pm FREDDIE Highmore (pictured) returns as Shaun Murphy, a gifted, young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, in season two of The Good Doctor. Shaun relocates from a quiet country life when he is recruited to join the paediatric surgical unit at a prestigious hospital. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun struggles as he deals with the traditional social interaction in the workplace but is brilliantly intuitive when it comes to medical diagnosis and human physiology. He uses his extraordinary medical skills to save lives and challenge the scepticism of his colleagues. Filmed in Vancouver, Canada, this touching drama also stars Richard Schiff, Hill Harper and Beau Garrett.
