The Good Doctor: Season 4

A young surgeon with Savant syndrome (Freddie Highmore) is recruited into the surgical unit of a prestigious hospital. Season 4 will tackle the impact of COVID-19. Show creator David Shore told Deadline "This has taken over every aspect of our lives for an unbelievable amount of time. The world hopefully will go back to what we viewed as normal, but it just would have been dishonest not to deal with this story."

While there may be different ways to be good and to express caring, The Good Doctor suggests, it is something worth aspiring to -- an idea that may especially appeal to viewers who have experienced health care as scary, impersonal and alienating.

Sensitively portrayed by Bates Motel star Freddie Highmore, the character is extraordinarily gifted but often underestimated by those around him.

Murphy's more rigid way of understanding the world drives much of what makes The Good Doctor stand out.

Shore has established the boilerplate world, and thanks to his leads, it has potential to evolve.

In the hands of [David] Shore, and with actors of the calibre of Richard Schiff, it somehow works.

It's a show that could develop into something interesting-and has enough beautiful people in scrubs to keep viewers engaged-but feels familiar in the premiere.

There have been few storylines that stand out beyond the typical medical drama; this one's just done well enough to make you buy in, thanks especially to Freddie Highmore's committed, layered turn.
