This series was recommended by a wise woman who works at the library; not something I would ordinarily seek out. But it was interesting. I had to fast forward through the compulsory birthing scenes (because really, come on! How many times do you have to watch this before you catch on that birth is a dramatic situation.) but the relationships between the women and the nuns and their clients was instructive and in some ways inspiring.

A wonderful series based on a memoir of a real nurse midwife in England in the 1950's. Also, on PBS. If this is your cup of tea, get the book or watch the series. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent series continues. I saw one recently aired episode on PBS, and I then sought out Series 1. Got hooked on this excellent story based on real nurses' memoirs. Not only shows medical care in the early 1950's but the real reward is the stories about relationships between the nurses themselves and with their patients. Smashing!

Season Three is a worthy continuation of this amazing series. Couldn't wait for Season Three after watching Season Two, and now can't wait for Season Four, but we are well down the waiting list so it will be a while unfortunately. How do they keep up the quality so well all the way through these episodes? The Brits do it so well. Can't miss.

I really enjoyed the first two seasons, but by season three I sensed that the demands of a big hit destined for a long run was beginning to take it's toll. The story lines became annoyingly formulaic. Some of the characters' quirks that held some charm initially started to grate. The actress who plays the Jenny Lee character (an older Jenny Lee being the narrator), has bailed out, so it will be interesting to see how the writers will handle that in Season Four but I doubt that I'll view more than it takes to satisfy my curiosity.

Yes, It is wonderful. I'm requesting the only season that's available. I've seen them all, but I so enjoy them that I've watched all the seasons at least once!

this is the best season of Call the Midwife so far! The characters are really developing beautifully, especially Chummy.

If you watch this series in sequence, your attachment to the characters increases with each season. This has been my favorite of the seasons thus far. Bring tissues for the stories are heartfelt and the life lessons are relevant for any time period!

I agree this is a wonderful TV series. It is so real to life. I love the compassion and commitment of the Nurse/Midwifes both Nuns and young women. The other characters round the narrative out. It is life affirming.
I love the character of sister Monica Joan who is based upon a Nun who gave so much to the poor in East London. Now, she is experiencing Dementia and yet she can still express such insight and compassion, and she can be so verbally sharp, and find the cake.
I am a nurse but, never had the opportunity to be a midwife. I admire what those real women did in the 50's. I have read and enjoyed Jennifer Worth's books.
I enjoy Downtown Abbey. However, Call The Midwife is much better because it is more like real people and real life.
Apparently, another book by Jennifer Worth may be published posthumously. If so I would like to read it.
