"As touching, funny and life-affi rming as ever"--The Sun
"…knockout success..."--Daily Mail Weekend
Back to 1950s East End London for more touching and compelling stories from the nurses and nuns of Nonnatus House. It’s 1958 and the hard-working midwives of Nonnatus House continue to serve the crowded tenements and slums of Poplar. As they struggle with the challenges of poverty, domestic abuse and the spectre of TB, the midwives also face crises of their own. A chance encounter reunites Jenny with Jimmy; Chummy and P.C. Noakes face a dilemma over their imminent future; a tragic birth puts Cynthia in the spotlight and Trixie enjoys an all-too-tantalising taste of celebrity lifestyle.
Back at Nonnatus House, Sister Julienne struggles to keep the beleaguered convent on an even keel as dementia-stricken Sister Monica Joan finds comfort in the friendship of new orderly, Jane; Sister Bernadette experiences a spiritual crisis and Sister Evangelina puts her foot down regarding pain relief.
Includes behind the scenes feature with cast and crew interviews.

I was not born in the 1950s but ten years later, yet I love the music within this series and the trials and tribulations of the midwives.
Overall this is an excellent series, there is no repetition within the episodes, each story is different and this is what I personally liked.
It's a wonderful show, striking a great balance between the hardships of life in 1950's East End London and the triumphs of the human spirit. It truly puts things into perspective when confronted with the struggle of surviving day to day in the tenements and slums that form the backbone of the show.
Another BBC gem!
This is the life both my grandmothers would have experienced. A small team of very young NHS midwives and older, wiser and more forceful character nuns are in charge of all the midwifery services of a low-income suburb in London's East End, in 1958. There's a lot of female history in this series - attitudes to the new-fangled NHS, the disabled, domestic violence, unmarried pregnancy, the new migrants from the Caribbean, and the demise of young women enrolling in convents.
But it is also balanced with gentle humour (Miranda Hart steals every scene that she is in), and there is the guaranteed money shot in every episode of a cute and cuddly newborn making surprised squeaking noises to the camera about his/her acting debut. This makes me rampagingly broody, and Mr Arachne202 a little bit nervous!
It makes us mothers of the 21st century look like complete wimps, seeing what life was like before the pill and many other medical treatments came into being - as well as the housing conditions, and no washing machines! And, after grudgingly taking my folic acid during two pregnancies and wondering what the GPs were making such a fuss about, I was genuinely shocked at the spina bifida episode (when folic acid was not available), and will be grateful for those tablets should I get lucky a third time.
Gorgeous series, well-made and well-acted. Can't recommend it enough.
