This series about the highs and lows experienced by the family of an autistic child was one of our favourite dramas of last year, so we’re thrilled it’s back.

Time has moved on two years, Joe is no longer coping at school and, in lump-in-the-throat scenes, he is starting to wonder why he’s different.

As Joe’s parents Alison and Paul try to work out what’s best for their boy, Morven Christie,
Lee Ingleby and little Max Vento are even more outstanding than last series.

And Christopher Eccleston is also back, as the brilliantly brusque granddad, offering much-needed light relief.
