TV A Word, The (BBC-1 2016-2017, Christopher Eccleston, Lee Ingleby) Published 2 years ago on April 5, 2017 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…” cast Max Vento as Joe Hughes Lee Ingleby as Paul Hughes Morven Christie as Alison Hughes Molly Wright as Rebecca Hughes Greg McHugh as Eddie Scott Vinette Robinson as Nicola Daniels Christopher Eccleston as Maurice Scott Pooky Quesnel as Louise Wilson Matt Greenwood as Tom Clarke Thomas Gregory as Luke Taylor Daniel Cerqueira as Dr Graves George Bukhari as Terry Adam Wittek as David Nowak Tommie Grabiec as Pavel Kaminski Julia Krynke as Maya Petrenko Lisa Millett as Maggie White Ralf Little as Stuart key behind the scenes crew Keren Maraglit as Creator Peter Bowker as Writer / Executive Producer Patrick Spence as Executive Producer Jenny Frayn as Executive Producer Sara Johnson as Executive Producer Avi Nir as Executive Producer Lucy Richer as Executive Producer Peter Cattaneo as Director Marcus Wilson as Producer show type Drama broadcast from 22 March 2016 2 Seasons with 12 episodes in total network and production companies BBC One – Fifty Fathoms – Keshet – July August BBCChristopher EcclestonDramaLee InglebyMorven ChristiePeter BowkerPooky QuesnelRalf LittleTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
