The Good Doctor is an American medical drama television series based on the 2013 award-winning South Korean series of the same name. Actor Daniel Dae Kim noticed the original series and bought the rights for his production company. He began adapting the series and in 2015 eventually shopped it to CBS, his home network. CBS decided against creating a pilot. Because Kim felt so strongly about the series, he bought back the rights from CBS. Eventually, Sony Pictures Television and Kim worked out a deal and brought on David Shore, creator of the Fox medical drama House, to develop the series.[1]

The show is produced by Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios, in association with production companies Shore Z Productions, 3AD, and Entermedia. David Shore serves as showrunner and Daniel Dae Kim is an executive producer for the show.

The series stars Freddie Highmore as Shaun Murphy, a young autistic savant surgical resident at the fictional San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. Antonia Thomas, Hill Harper, Christina Chang, Richard Schiff, Will Yun Lee, Fiona Gubelmann, Paige Spara, and Tamlyn Tomita also star in the show. Nicholas Gonzalez, Chuku Modu, Beau Garrett, and Jasika Nicole used to also star in the show, but their characters were written off. The series received a put pilot commitment at ABC after a previous attempted series did not move forward at CBS Television Studios in 2015; The Good Doctor was ordered to series in May 2017. On October 3, 2017, ABC picked up the series for a full season of 18 episodes. The series is primarily filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The series debuted on September 25, 2017. The Good Doctor has received mixed reviews from critics, with particular praise given to Highmore's performance, and strong television ratings but criticism for the storylines while the portrayal of autism divided critics. In March 2018, ABC renewed the series for a second season, which premiered on September 24, 2018. In February 2019, ABC renewed the series for a third season, which premiered on September 23, 2019. In February 2020, ABC renewed the series for a fourth season which is set to premiere on November 2, 2020.

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

In May 2014, CBS Television Studios began development on an American remake of the hit South Korean medical drama Good Doctor with Daniel Dae Kim as producer. Kim explained the appeal of adapting the series as "something that can fit into a recognizable world, with a breadth of characters that can be explored in the long run".[27] The story of an autistic pediatric surgeon was to be set in Boston and projected to air in August 2015.[28][29] However, CBS did not pick up the project and it moved to Sony Pictures Television, with a put pilot commitment from ABC in October 2016.

Release[edit]

The Good Doctor began airing on September 25, 2017, on ABC in the United States,[56] and on CTV in Canada.[57] Sky Witness acquired the broadcast rights for the United Kingdom and Ireland.[58] Seven Network airs the series in Australia.[59] Colors Infinity aqcuired the rights to the series for the Indian Subcontinent in October 2017, airing each episode 24 hours after its US broadcast.[60] Wowow, the largest Japanese private satellite and pay-per-view television network in Japan acquired the rights to broadcast the series beginning in April 2018.[61] In the Netherlands, the series began airing on January 29, 2018, on RTL 4 and on video-on-demand service Videoland.[62] In Italy the series premiered on Rai 1 on July 17, 2018 setting a record of 5.2 million total viewers from 9.30pm to 11.45pm, reaching a share of 31,7% in the third episode[63] and entering the Top 10 of Most Watched Foreign TV Series in Italy at No.5,[64] an event since the leaderboard never changed again after the last entry on November 14, 2007 with an episode of House.[65][64] In Brazil, the series was the first international production to be released at the Rede Globo's video-on-demand service Globoplay.[66] On August 27 the two first episodes was aired at Globo free-to-air television network to announce the launch of the series in the streaming service.[67] On March 20, 2020 the Chilean public broadcaster Televisión Nacional de Chile announces the arrival of the series, with a "Coming soon" advertisement.[68]

Marketing[edit]

A full-length trailer was released for ABC's May 2017 Upfront presentation, which /Film's Ethan Anderton described the concept as feeling like "House meets Rain Man, that just might be enough to make it interesting". However, he questioned "how long can audiences be entranced by both the brilliance of [Highmore's] character's savant skills and the difficulties that come from his autism in the workplace."[69] Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter felt the trailer was "both kinda progressive and really dated". He added, "Too much felt on-the-nose—especially Hill Harper as the main character's detractor and Richard Schiff as his noble defender", while also commentating that "On-the-nose/premise is how you have to trailer a show like this, and maybe spaced out over 43 minutes it won't grate."[70] Ben Travers and Steve Greene for IndieWire called it "a serious trailer for a serious subject. The first glimpse of Highmore's character hints that they're toeing the line between presenting a thoughtful depiction of his condition and using his perceptive abilities as a kind of secret weapon."[71] The trailer had been viewed over 25.4 million times after a week of its release, including over 22 million views on Facebook.[72]

The pilot was screened at ABC's PaleyFest event on September 9, 2017.[73] On March 22, 2018, members of the cast as well as executive producers Shore and Kim attended the 35th annual PaleyFest LA to promote the series, along with a screening of the season finale of the first season.[74]

Streaming[edit]

In May 2018, Hulu acquired the SVOD rights to new and past episodes of the series to air exclusively on Hulu, with future episodes becoming available the day after their original broadcast on ABC.[75] In New Zealand, the show is available exclusively for streaming on Lightbox. The pilot episode was made available for viewing on February 5, 2018 with the newer episodes coming express from the US.[76][77][78]

The series premiere earned a 2.2/9 rating in the 18- to 49-year-old demographic, with 11.22 million total viewers, making it the most watched Monday drama debut on ABC in 21 years, since Dangerous Minds in September 1996, and the highest rated Monday drama in the 18–49 demographic in 8.5 years, since Castle in March 2009.[93] Factoring live plus seven-day ratings, the pilot was watched by a total of 19.2 million viewers and set a record for DVR viewers with 7.9 million, surpassing the record of 7.67 million set by the pilot of Designated Survivor in 2016.[94] According to TV Guide's November 13–26 issue, the October 9 episode attracted 18.2 million viewers, beating out both high-rated CBS shows NCIS and The Big Bang Theory for the most viewed primetime show that week.[95]

Critical response[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes season 1 has an approval rating of 62% based on 42 reviews, with an average rating of 5.65/10. The website's consensus reads, "The Good Doctor's heavy-handed bedside manner undermines a solid lead performance, but under all the emotionally manipulative gimmickry, there's still plenty of room to improve."[96] On Metacritic season 1 has a weighted average score of 53 out of 100 based on 15 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[97]

Giving his first impression of the series' pilot for TVLine, Matt Webb Mitovich stated, "The Good Doctor boasts great DNA... [and] has the potential to be a refreshingly thought-provoking hospital drama, based on the buttons pushed in the pilot alone." He enjoyed the "warm dynamic" of Schiff and Highmore, while describing Thomas' character as "our emotional 'in' to Shaun's distinct, distant world". He noted that "it takes a while to build up momentum", but concluded that "the very final scene packs quite a punch, as Dr. Murphy unwittingly puts a colleague on notice".[98]

The New York Times television critic James Poniewozik notes in his Critic's Notebook column that, for the most part, the drama is a "hospital melodrama with whiz-bang medical science, a dash of intra-staff romance and shameless sentimentality." Discussing the main characters of Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) and Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), Poniewozik writes that "Mr. Schiff is convincing in the role and Mr. Highmore is striking in his." [99]

Speaking of Freddie Highmore's Golden Globe nomination on Monday, December 11, 2017, for his role in The Good Doctor, Laura Bradley, writing for Vanity Fair says: "... Freddie Highmore received the awards recognition that has long and unjustly eluded him..." Bradley feels that Highmore's performance has been "the central key" to the show's enormous success and while the show had lukewarm reviews, most critics have praised Highmore's work.[100]

Christy Duan, Vasilis K. Pozios and Praveen R. Kambam wrote in a piece for The Hollywood Reporter in their critique that The Good Doctor presents a belief that autistic individuals only benefit society when they possess savant abilities.[101] This is similar to arguments made by Douwe Draaisma that directors look to make an authentic representation of autism and create a character with savant skills.[102]
