In today’s edition of our ongoing Crossover November article series, we are talking about a show in The Good Doctor that, on paper, doesn’t need to cross over with anyone. That’s what happens when you tell a great story with interesting characters — and also cases that never seem to get boring.

Yet, at the same time, aren’t crossovers still a fun thing to consider and think about? We do think that this is a rather fun, creative diversion that the writers could take on for an episode or two — and that’s what this article is all about! Below, you can take a look at a few different suggestions for the best shows to cross over — not all of these are really feasible, but since we’re just speculating for the heck of it, doesn’t it really matter?
Chicago Med – Okay, so we recognize that this will never happen given that these shows are on different networks, but isn’t there a good reason to think that this would make some sense? Remember that Ato Essandoh’s character of Dr. Latham is on the autism spectrum, and this would be an opportunity for these two characters to share experiences — they have a unique understanding of what it means to be successful doctors while also taking on struggles few other people do.
Grey’s Anatomy – Yes, this is the obvious choice, but it also does make a certain degree of sense. Given that these shows are on the same network and both successful medical dramas, why not try and throw a couple of Grey’s Anatomy characters into the world? It’s easy to figure out how this would happen — maybe there is an operation at the St. Bonaventure Hospital that only a couple of doctors in the country would be able to assist on.
911 – Is it possible that one of the first responders from this show has a history up north of Los Angeles? It actually makes more sense geographically for this show to be folded in than The Resident, even though it has more in common in terms of subject matter.
House – Sure, it’s not on the air anymore, but isn’t there something fun that comes with thinking about having two David Shore series in the same universe? This is a man who has excelled in finding art within medical dramas perhaps more so than anyone else out there.
Obviously, if there really is an actual The Good Doctor crossover event, we are going to offer up that news here…
