Adapted by Heidi Thomas from the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this drama series is a moving, funny, colorful look at midwifery and family in 1950s East End London. It follows newly qualified midwife Jenny, who joins an eccentric, lovable community of nuns who are nurses at Nonnatus House. Jenny is surprised to find herself at a convent -- she thought she was being sent to a small private hospital -- and is initially daunted by her surroundings, most notably the formidable Sister Evangelina and the unconventional Sister Monica Joan. But Jenny gradually begins to find her way and develops incredible friendships among the nurses, as they are drawn into the lives and homes of the women and families they treat.
The popular show, based on the memoirs of East End midwife Jennifer Worth, has never shied away from harsh truths and unhappy endings.
It’s true that children could play out in the streets and that housewives left their front doors open in London’s Docklands in the Fifties, but there was also disease and poverty – and "Call The Midwife" has always depicted it. The joy and the cleverness of "Call The Midwife" is its ability to mix heart-wrenching drama with gentle comedy, and not allow the combination to feel strained. Much of that is due to the sympathetic cast, who never over-egg it.--Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, January 18, 2016
