Christmas is coming, and in Poplar the midwives of Nonnatus House are busier than ever. When an abandoned baby is discovered on the steps of the convent, the whole community rallies round to provide food and clothing, and to try and trace his mother. Nurse Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine) meanwhile, gets caught up in the heartbreaking mystery that surrounds an elderly, semi-vagrant local woman, Mrs Jenkins (Sheila Reid). For newly married Chummy (Miranda Hart), other challenges await, as she pulls out all the stops to mount a truly memorable children's nativity play.

... My wife and myself viewed the first series, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The Christmas Special was so great. My wife who trained as a Nurse in the 50s, could relate to these well presented stories. The side line to these stories, shows how far we have come in medical advancements.

I loved the first series.......so full of the human degradation and misery, the joy and simple happiness that was this dockland area of the 1950's. Teeming with life and all levels of strongly felt social classes of the time. Jessica Raine's portrayal of these people is both raw and endearing...............I had completely forgotten what life was like for women before the contraceptive pill became widely available!!!

Very good storyline, though rather down-beat and sad for a Christmas offering. A feel-good ending though. I would recommend this.

I watched this episode on BBC 1 at Christmas and loved it so much I had to buy it to accompany the first series I bought last year. The characters are all very believable and great actors and I'm glad the writers kept to the original books' stories as much as possible. Brilliant, and I look forward to receiving my copy of the second series which I have already pre ordered.

The acting in this Christmas special is superb. A highly emotional episode, which was incredibly moving to watch.

I would give it six stars if I could.
