Call the Midwife Review

Call the Midwife is a British TV show adapted from the memoirs from Jennifer Worth the show aired for the first time last January and I have been watching since the very first episode. It has since picked up loads of awards and quite rightly so it is simply brilliant, each episode makes me laugh and has also lead me to being a complete sobbing mess, so its safe to say it will send you on an emotional roller coaster.

The ITunes description of the show- 
Call the Midwife is based on the best selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth. Set in the 1950s, this six part series is a moving and intimate insight into the colourful world of midwifery and family life in London’s East End. We are introduced to the local community through the eyes of young nurse Jenny Lee as she lives and works as a midwife alongside the Nuns of the Order of St. Raymond of Nonnatus.

The cast

Jessica Raine- Jenny Lee

Helen George- Trixie Franklin

Miranda Hart- Chummy Browne/Noakes

Bryony Hannah- Cynthia Miller

Laura Main- Sister Bernadette 

Jenny Agutter- Sister Julienne 
Pam Ferris- Sister Evangelina

Judy Parfitt- Sister Monica Joan

These characters along with many other minor characters make the show what it is, every episode is unpredictable because of course it is based on a real life story of a midwife in the 1950s. Well worth a look watch it on Sundays at 8PM and catch up by buying the DVD or downloading from ITunes, but whilst your at it buy a box of tissues (you'll need it)
