Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows Nurse Jenny Lee and the midwives from Nonnatus House convent as they provide the best possible care to the expectant mothers of Poplar.
Series 3 sees Chummy, PC Noakes and baby Freddy back in the East End; Sister Bernadette - now known as Shelagh since leaving the convent - preparing for her wedding to Dr Turner; and Jenny facing some tough personal and professional challenges. At Christmas, when an unexploded World War II bomb is found under a warehouse close to Nonnatus House, the nuns and dozens of local families find themselves homeless. Later, Dr Turner finds himself in a race against time to immunise children against polio, and when a Royal visitor comes to the East End, Chummy persuades them to open the new Community Centre.
A fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change, Call the Midwife continues to offer a gripping insight into a world that is so drastically different from how we live now.

The nuns find themselves in new and better accommodation and the private lives of the midwives develop movingly as Jenny Lee recovers from her bereavement and finds new love, Chummy loses her mother and finds herself, Trixie loses her heart and Shelagh and Patrick Turner finally achieve a family. (I have to admit to finding Shelagh and Patrick a tiny bit wet).
I was amused by the review suggesting using the dvd as a coaster, because I know a few men who find the childbirth aspect of the series distressing and have to leave the room. My pre-teen grandkids of both genders, on the other hand, take it all in their stride and are addicted to the programme. It is one of the best ever made by the BBC, in my opinion, and its popularity is richly deserved.
We battle on with them through struggles and strife and share their joy as a new life is brought into the world. Their stoicism when faced with disaster their acceptance of conditions that are unthinkable today is admirable.They have this attitude of shrugging things off and simply 'get on with it'. As for the midwives, I adore them absolutely. Gathered from different class structures and backgrounds their upbringings were totally different from the women they serve. But they cope with the dirty beds, the filthy tenements and often abusive partners to deliver their babies with much love and sympathy. The midwives provided a much needed service to most of the women of the East End who before their arrival had their babies without medical help.
Please keep making more series.
Will be interesting to see how they continue story line development after the departure of Jessica Raines who played the lead character. They have a very strong cast (Pam Ferris, Jenny Agutter, Miranda Hart, Helen George, Judy Parfitt, Bryony Hannah, Laura Main, Stephen McGann, Cliff Parisi, etc.). I am trusting that this quality production will continue to excel.
Actually, our TV-evenings are much like they used to be back in the late 60's and early 70's when only a single person on the block had a TV-set and everyone would drop in to watch. What else is to be said about the Calling the Midwife? We just want to express our appreciation of a series absolutely perfectly made - starting with the research of that particular time in history, the props, the actors/actresses - perfectly chosen - every role is filled with life by just the right person. We are all extremely sad that Jessica Raine is leaving the "Midwives" but still ecstatic that the show will still go on for at another season. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, I suppose. Recommended highly ba all 5 ex-Pats plus foreigners! There's no better way to spend a great evening!
