| DVD

A Rare Gem of A Family Drama Radio Times The A Word returns to the idyllic landscape of the Lake District, where, two years on, Joe is changing. Now age seven, Joe has begun to look at the world and find he doesn't fit in. ˜Autistic' is a word he has heard but can't yet understand. Different is what he feels and fears might be something bad. It is up to the whole family to help Joe makes sense of who he is and his place in the world but to do that they must first be honest about themselves. Peter Bowker's six-part drama revisits the funny, messy, mixed up lives... of the Hughes and Scott families as they struggle to do their best as parents, carers and lovers, and to work out what's really important in the face of nothing ever feeling normal. Included Extras: On The Roof Mark at the Gig Together Again [show more]

    Editor Review

    A beautifully presented drama serial set in a small Lake District district town. Seven year old Joe loves music and walking and is just starting to appreciate he is different from other kids. He can name every hit record for decades for a start! Joe has autism and his parents want the best for their son which means they face the difficult decision about where Joe will be happiest at school. The relationships of Joe's family, including his grandparents, parents, sister and family friends all struggle with their own issues and create a real insight into the highs and lows of loving a child who is unalike the other kids. A sweet drama with, great acting and all the intensity of real life challenges set in the best location in the UK.

    Verdict
    A must see for all parents of youngsters!
