A Word, The (BBC-1 2016-2017, Christopher Eccleston, Lee Ingleby)

Published

on

The A Word is the story of the Hughes family, who work and love and fight like every other family. Then their youngest son is diagnosed with autism and they don’t feel like every other family anymore. They realise that if their son is ever going to communicate, they are going to have to learn how to communicate themselves. It’s a funny and thought-provoking series about parenthood and childhood.

From the BBC’s Press Release 5 April, 2017… Filming has started in the Lake District and at Manchester’s Space Project in preparation for the return to BBC One’s The A Word this Autumn.

The story picks up two years on from where we left it and Joe, who is played by Max Vento is changing. Now age seven, he has begun to look at the world and find he doesn’t fit in.

Writer Peter Bowker explains: “Autistic is a word Joe has heard but can’t yet understand. Different is what he feels, and fears might be something bad. It’s up to the whole family to help Joe make sense of who he is and his place in the world. But to do that, they must first be honest about themselves…”
