As we mentioned here
, Stiletto Vendetta taps its finale heels in mid-October and Dokter Ali premieres immediately after, on Friday 15 October.
It follows the life of autistic savant
doctor Ali Vefa, who was orphaned as a young boy after being rejected by his father.
He grew up in an orphanage and then studied medicine, graduating with top honours.
The action begins as he starts his first job as an assistant surgeon at a private hospital.
If his character sounds familiar, it's because he is.
The series is based on a 2013 Korean series titled Good Doctor - the same series that sparked The Good Doctor
starring Freddie Highmore.
Turkish actor Taner Ölmez plays Ali.
