Fresh from Bates Motel, Freddie Highmore is starring as The Good Doctor, a show that has come out of nowhere to become the most watched US TV show currently! It is ABC's most watched Monday night drama in 21 years and is beating the likes of The Big Bang Theory and The Walking Dead in the ratings. It hasn't got full critic's approval but it has received a full series order. Are YOU watching? ohmy.gif

QUOTE(The Guardian)
The premise is simple: Shaun Murphy, played by Highmore, is an autistic surgeon with savant syndrome. His stream of consciousness speaks the language of anatomy, and when the show’s particularly keen on calling attention to his genius, organs and veins and glands float above his head like illustrations ripped from a med-school textbook. “He’s not Rain Man,” says his main advocate at the prestigious St Bonaventure hospital in an attempt to convince the board that Murphy is hirable and high-functioning. To those in the autism community, the show has deftly done just that. “The Good Doctor does a fine job of navigating this razor’s edge,” wrote Kerry Magro on the website Autism Speaks, noting that it shows “several characteristics that can accompany an autism diagnosis such as social awkwardness, lack of eye contact, playing with his hands during stressful situations”. He adds: “Freddie’s take will resonate with many in the community.”
