  • Critic Reviews for The Doctor All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (2) The Doctor is that rare specimen--a big studio movie that treats the audience (and its own characters) with intelligence and respect.

  • Review your doctor. Sharing your experience might connect someone to the care they need.

  • "The Doctor" is a sensitive drama with a magnificent story of a doctor that changes his values when he understands the perspective of patients after becoming one with cancer. William Hurt, Christine Lahti and Elizabeth Perkins have wonderful performances and the story is never corny despite the pleasant conclusion.

  • The Seventh Doctor returns to comics, as Operation Volcano begins in the first issue of a new Doctor Who mini-series by Titan Comics!

  • Review: ‘The Good Doctor’ is a too-sentimental portrait of doctor with autism. The series, which follows a young doctor with autism and savant syndrome, is often too maudlin to be effective.

  • Spoilers follow for this episode of Doctor Who. To regenerate or not to regenerate. That is the question. In fact, it’s the question not just for the Twelfth Doctor here in the Season 10 finale, “The Doctor Falls,” but also in a way for Missy and for Bill as well.

  • The Good Doctor is one of multiple new or recent shows centered around young men on the spectrum. In addition to Atypical, the best of the lot so far, there is also Young Sheldon, the Big Bang Theory prequel that, like The Good Doctor, emphasizes the magnificence of its young hero’s mind but, unlike The Good Doctor and in keeping with Big Bang’s approach, never outright discusses his condition.
