I TALK The A Word

Following Happy Valley was never going to be an easy task, and thankfully BBC One have decided not to fill that Tuesday evening slot with another crime drama, but rather a lovely heartwarming drama about family dynamics, The A Word.

Some of you might remember the Sheridan Smith led drama The C Word from last year, but before I talk about The A Word, I wanted to make it clear that despite the similar title, the two dramas actually have nothing to do with one another.

The A Word is written by the brilliant Peter Bowker, who brought us Marvellous in 2014, and is about a messy, extended family with a child with autism at its centre.
