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 in the 1950s.
This Call the Midwife box set features the complete series one, two and three together with both Christmas specials. In series one Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine) gets her first job at Nonnatus House which she soon realises is a nursing convent and not a hospital, as she had assumed. As she begins caring for patients, she gradually becomes accustomed to her new environment, making friends with fellow midwives Cynthia (Bryony Hannah), Trixie (Helen George) and the clumsy Chummy (Miranda Hart). In series two, it's 1958, and while Jenny has her hands full dealing with an abused patient, Trixie and Sister Evangelina (Pam Ferris) are forced to board a Swedish cargo ship to tend to the captain's pregnant daughter. In the Christmas special, the discovery of an abandoned baby on the convent's doorstep proves to be a catalyst as the community come together to try to trace the child's mother. Elsewhere, Jenny finds herself drawn into the mystery surrounding elderly local woman Mrs Jenkins (Sheila Reid), while Chummy is determined to stage an unforgettable nativity play.
Series three 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.
The 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.

Funnily enough, when the trailers for the first series initially aired, I didn't fancy the look of it at all. Not being particularly fond of children (or nuns!), I didn't think this would appeal. However, I caught ten minutes of it one night and was hooked!
The characters, storylines and narrative are all spot on. I love the gritty historical aspect of life in the West End of the 50s, in all its grim and horrifying reality.
This has become one of my all time favourites!
