The Western Star - - TV HIGHLIGHTS & TV GUIDE LIFE -

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.
