BBC One Sets January Premiere Date For ‘Call The Midwife’ Season 9
BBC One has set a January premiere date for Season 9 of award-winning drama series ‘Call The Midwife‘ the broadcaster has announced.
Created and written by Heidi Thomas, ‘Call The Midwife’ follows the lives of a group of midwives working in the poverty-stricken East End of London, exploring many areas of medical and social history.
The 9th Season opens with the funeral of Winston Churchill in January 1965, then continues with Nonnatus House entering a bold and innovative era. As the tower blocks multiply, and a new East End rises from the ashes of the old, society becomes more prosperous, but more complex. Our familiar team of medics and midwives face unexpected challenges as the population shifts, rules change, and old diseases come back to haunt them. Alongside the joy and optimism of birth, they must cope with cases including diphtheria, drug abuse, cancer, tuberculosis, and fistula. Meanwhile, their own experiences are fuelled by love, loss, and doubt – and the very fabric of their lives is jeopardised when Nonnatus itself comes under threat of demolition.
Series nine cast includes: Miriam Margolyes (Mother Mildred), Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Linda Bassett (Nurse Crane), Judy Parfitt (Sister Monica Joan), Fenella Woolgar (Sister Hilda), Ella Bruccoleri (Sister Frances), Helen George (Trixie), Laura Main (Shelagh Turner), Jennifer Kirby (Valerie), Leonie Elliott (Lucille), Stephen McGann (Dr Turner), Cliff Parisi (Fred), Annabelle Apsion (Violet), Georgie Glen (Miss Higgins), Max Macmillan (Timothy), Trevor Cooper (Sgt Woolf) and Daniel Laurie (Reggie).
‘Call The Midwife‘ Season 9 premieres Sunday, 5th January 2019 at 8pm. If you can’t quite hold on until January for your fix, tune into BBC One Christmas Day at 7pm for the ‘Call The Midwife Christmas Special’.
