‘Call The Midwife’ is set to return for it’s 8th Season this January BBC One has announced.
Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, the drama follows the lives of a group of midwives working in the poverty-stricken East End of London during the 1950s. Following the events of the recent Christmas Special, the new season jumps forward in time a little, as Spring has sprung.
The staff in Poplar need a little extra help, so Mother Mildred (Miriam Margolyes) decides to send Sister Frances (Ella Broccoleri) and Sister Hilda (Fenella Woolgar) to Nonnatus House, where they will live and work.
Everyone is excited for the impending arrival of the Queen’s baby. Violet (Annabelle Apsion) is holding a Teddy Bears’ Picnic and raising funds through a sweepstake on whether the Queen will have a boy or a girl.
The midwives are introduced to their new midwifery bags, but Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) is distressed when she sees Fred (Cliff Parisi) burning the old leather ones.
Lucille (Leonie Elliott) is caring for heavily pregnant Lesley White (Jordon Stevens), whose sister Cath (Emily Barber), an aspiring model, has been feeling extremely unwell. Back at the maternity home, Shelagh (Laura Main) has to step in to help Trixie (Helen George) with a birth that takes a surprise turn.
‘Call The Midwife’ Season 8 premieres Sunday, 13th January 2019 at 8pm on BBC One.
