“Mary McDonnell talks ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Battlestar Galactica” … She plays Dr. Virginia Dixon, a cardiac surgeon who begins a stint at Seattle Grace. The character also has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism that causes an inability to interact socially with others.

“This woman is really an excellent surgeon and a leader in her field, but she has a really interesting twist to her,” McDonnell says. “… It’s accompanied in her case by an inability, in a sort of normal social sense, to perform everyday functions easily that other people do quite easily.”:
