Sex Education Wiki

Isaac Goodwin is one of the characters in Sex Education. He is portrayed by George Robinson.

He and his brother are the newest residents at the caravan park, where Maeve lives.

Early Life[]

Isaac became physically disabled when he was ten years old while playing with his brother Joe. They were still living with their parents then and they would be sent out of the house so their parents could get high. One day, he dared Joe to climb up a massive tree and Joe chickened out halfway up. Wanting to prove he was braver, Isaac climbed to the very top of the tree and subsequently, fell off.

He mentioned to Maeve that their foster parents could not handle taking care of disabled child anymore and hence, forced him and his brother out of the house.

Throughout the Series[]

Throughout Season 2, Isaac starts off as a very mysterious and seemingly opportunistic character, as seen when he first encounters Maeve. As the episodes go by, he mentions being a soldier that served his country and ended up in a wheelchair due to a grenade; however, he later mentions to Maeve's friends different ways he got injured, and eventually tells her the truth about his lies.

As time goes on, Isaac develops a major crush on the gothic neighbour of his, bringing him to delete the love message left by Otis on Maeve's phone in order to prevent them from potentially being together.



Isaac is witty and sardonic in his humour, and throughout the show uses a mix of cynicism and self-deprecating humour, being a disabled person. He is contemptuous when it comes to meeting new people, as shown by his early interactions with Maeve and his suspicions and distrust regarding her mother. Issac is quite a charming person, being able to get along with the most people really well. This was shown to be quite the case as shown when he met Maeve's mother and charmed her, by telling her she is quite beautiful just so that she would hang out with Maeve more often.

Issac has some extremely manipulative and controlling tendencies - as shown when he deleted Otis' voicemail for Maeve just because of his opinions of him, obscuring the truth underneath merely due to his anger at Otis. Issac is also quite defensive in nature as shown when he defended his manipulative tendencies towards Maeve by saying that he did everything that he did to protect her from Otis.

However, despite his negatives, Isaac is overall quite a grey character as shown when he told the truth about him deleting Otis' heartfelt voicemail to Maeve. Isaac is a caring and empathetic human, who tried to stick it out for Maeve, but eventually broke things off with her, because he knew that despite his friends' advances towards her, she still loved Otis.
