ABOUT THE SHOW

Its now 1962 and times are changing

From the beacon of the contraceptive pill and the shadow of infamous gangsters the Krays to the new welfare policies introduced by the government.

Christmas time sees the nuns receive an SOS call from a tiny mission hospital in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Under the hot African sun, the Nonnatus family face some of their toughest challenges yet with increasingly limited resources. Back in Poplar, when the rather austere Sister Ursula is appointed the new head of Nonnatus House, Sister Julienne finds herself demoted and working back alongside the midwives as an ordinary member of staff. She is not the only one to face challenges closer to home. As they strive to help mothers and families cope with the demands of childbearing, disability, disease and social prejudice, our beloved medics must make choices – and fight battles – of their own.

Series 6 sees them laugh together, cry together, and pull together, supporting each other as never before.
