THE A WORD
TUE 21 NOV, 9PM, BBC1
Our favourite thing about this heart-warming drama is Christopher Eccleston as Maurice. He rushes to Louise’s side when he hears she’s gone in for her first chemo session (there’s even humour in this scene). Meanwhile, Paul and Alison are struggling a bit and Paul gets his head turned by the mum of older autistic boy Mark. He might just be about to cheat on his lovely missus (no!).
