The Good Doctor is one of my favorite medical dramas on television. It stars Freddie Highmore as Shaun Murphy who plays a young autistic surgical resident. It debuted back in 2017 and now is on its fourth season on ABC. Like in every series that goes on for multiple seasons, sometimes the cast has to change. In this fourth season of The Good Doctor, the show is being injected with some new residents that were introduced last night.
The properly titled episode Newbies saw four new residents on the series. They include Brian Marc, Summer Brown, Bria Samone Henderson, and Noah Galvin. Each of them brings in unique personalities that are sure to shake things up at the fictional San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. During the episode, we already saw them butting heads with some established characters. Below is the synopsis for last night’s episode.
The Good Doctor Episode 403 “Newbies”
With several candidates vying for residency at St. Bonaventure, Chief of Surgery Dr. Audrey Lim tasks Dr. Shaun Murphy, Dr. Claire Browne, and Dr. Alex Park with mentoring the top first-year resident contenders. As their mentees shadow them for the day, Shaun and Park meet with Andrews to discuss a difficult surgery scheduled for a minor. Later, Shaun inadvertently insults Lea while discussing the pros and cons of the controversial surgery. And elsewhere, Dr. Morgan Reznick seeks out Claire and Lim’s help on a consult.
In honor of their debut last night LRMOnline had the opportunity to take a few minutes to talk with all four of the new doctors mentioned above. During our conversation, we got to know each of their characters. Some of their interactions with Dr. Murphy. As well as the challenges in portraying a doctor on television. You can check out the interview below!
ABC’s The Good Doctor can be seen on Monday nights at 10 pm ET.
