The A Word BBC1, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

A won­der­ful writer (the Bafta-win­ning Peter Bowker) and a su­perb cast (which in­cludes Christo­pher Ec­cle­ston, Mor­ven Christie and Lee In­gleby) unite for what prom­ises to be a highly mov­ing six-part drama. It charts the lives of the Hughes fam­ily, who think of them­selves as be­ing just like mil­lions of other clans across the coun­try. But when their youngest son is di­ag­nosed with autism, they start to see things dif­fer­ently and re­alise that if he is ever go­ing to com­mu­ni­cate, they will have to learn the finer points of com­mu­ni­ca­tion too.
