As initially reported by entertainment website DigitalSpy the new season of Doctor Who has a character with Dyspraxia.
Speaking at the launch of Doctor Who‘s new series in Sheffield, Chris Chibnall (Lead writer and series producer) said: “We did a lot of research into that, we worked with the Dyspraxia Foundation… it was important, because people live with these things.
“It’s a relatively common thing among kids, so I think it’s important to see that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. That’s the most important thing about Doctor Who and you will see that [idea] happen a lot across this year.”
The new series of Doctor Who, which for the first time has a female doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, premieres on BBC 1 at 6.45pm on Sunday 7th October.
