Jessica Raine and Miranda Hart return for more touching and compelling stories from the nurses and nuns of Nonnatus House.
Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows nurse Jenny Lee and the midwives from Nonnatus House convent, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care.
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 huge challenges both personally and professionally.
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. Dr Turner is in a race against time to immunise children against polio, but when the illness strikes closer to home, he finds there’s nothing he can do but hope. When a royal visitor comes to the East End, Chummy persuades them to open the new community centre and it’s a race against time to get everything in place for the big day.
A fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change, Call the Midwife offers a gripping insight into a world that is so drastically different from how we live now.
