The Good Doctor
Thursday, seven, 8.30pm
Freddie Highmore is a long way from the dark Bates Motel. Delivering a fantastic performance, he is hero doctor Shaun Murphy, a baby-faced pediatric surgeon with autism and savant syndrome. Blessed with a photographic memory but an awkward manner with colleagues and patients, Murphy’s genius medical knowledge puts him a cut above the rest. Tonight, in “Pipes”, Dr Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) and the team have to wade through legal red tape and Dr Murphy struggles to adjust to his new environment at home. The Good Doctor offers much more than its simplistic title.
