Series 6 Edit
When we are first introduced to Reggie, he is shown with his elderly mother who runs their life based on schedules and images, to make it understandable and memorable for Reggie to function for short periods without her. One evening when she is headed to church, she tells Reggie she will be back at six in the evening, making sure Reggie understands what that will look like on the clock. However, at church, she suffers a massive heart attack and dies before she hits the floor. Thus begins Reggie's journey.
