THE A WORD
8. 3 0PM, BBC F I RST This terrifically warm series about a dysfunctional family coping with their five-year-old boy’s autism is emotional but full of character comedy. Alison (Morven Christie) pulls Joe (Max Vento) out of school, but is it for him or because she’s ashamed? And Nicola (Vinette Robinson) seeks a second medical opinion from an old lover.
