Call the Midwfe, without a doubt, is one of the best new drama's to come out of the BBC in the last decade. Each episode takes us on a nostalgic trip to Popla, a world quite forgotten world in History, but a world of bueaty and nostalgia. Two things make this drama the thing it is: 1) the setting and 2) the relationship between the charecters, bought on by an excellent cast. Miranda Hart and Jessica Raine specifically are amazing in this programme, and have recieved many awards for their portrayals of the hard working midwives in 19th century Britain. Also the setting is nostalgic, and the drama has been very well costructed by the producers and scritpwriters.
I would myself say that this series is even better than the previous, which was very positivley rated. The television ratings themselves are extremley appealing - at least 10 million of us are tuning in a week to watch this excellent drama. On paper, this drama does not seem revolutionary - but it's feel and excellent cast make it something many others are not: heartwarming - and I bet once you watch one episode you will be glued until you have watched the entire series.
Call the Midwife thoroughly deserves the accolades it has been awarded, and is one not to miss. This DVD is definitaly one to go for: take a nostalgic, memorable trip to Popla; full of drama, humour and a sense of pure innocence,
