Call the Midwife is an award winning BBC drama based on the best selling memoirs of former nurse, Jennifer Worth, that is set in 1950's poverty-ridden East London. Call the Midwife portrays the triumphs and struggles of the midwives and nuns at the nursing convent Nonnatus house as well as the working class people they serve. This season was disappointingly slow despite the writers best efforts - a polio outbreak, ex- nun wedding jitters, a royal visit, and an angry father who threatens to get rid of a baby that is very noticeably not his. As you can read, there was a lot of drama going on and yet it was incredibly boring; the only redeeming qualities being one medical mystery solved and seeing childbirth practice advancements. The first two seasons are excellent and addicting so despite this dud, I highly recommend you hop on another British bandwagon!
