Call The Midwife

Tuesdays at 8.30pm

Show Synopsis

Inspired by the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows the nurses and nuns from Nonnatus House convent, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best care.

It’s now 1962 and times are changing. This series sees the nuns receive an SOS call from a mission hospital in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Under the hot sun, the Nonnatus family face some of their toughest challenges yet.

Back in Poplar, the rather austere Sister Ursula is appointed the new head of Nonnatus House, demoting Sister Julienne to an ordinary member of staff. She is not the only one to face challenges closer to home.

Series 6 sees the nuns and nurses laugh together and cry together, supporting each other as never before.
