Call the Midwife!

Oh my! Another fantastic show to watch! This one is set in the 1950's and based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth. Call the Midwife is based on the experiences of the Anglican Sisters of the Community of St. John the Divine. Jennifer Worth was one of their district nurses, unfortunately she passed away before she could see her books brought to life on the small screen.

I looked at the show and as soon as I am up to date with Bomb Girls I am heading to "Call the Midwife"! I mean how can I not? There are babies and nuns and real down to earth stories that we can all relate to. And I know you don't know but I have a soft spot for nuns-I adore them.

Are you going to see this show? Let me know if you have already and what you think about it!



  1. I saw a commercial for this show for the first time about a week ago, and my attention was instantly at high alert. The period uniforms alone make it worth watching! I don't tend to catch much TV, but is one show I'll definitely be trying to make a point to see.

  2. Are we going to get this on the line up this spring.

  3. Seeing as we have very similar taste in movies and televisions shows, I know I'm going to have to see this show. It looks awesome. :)

  4. I know its fabulous right!! Whooaaaa! Sean I am not sure-I will keep my eye out for you though. I see all my shows and movies online :) xox

  5. Just starting watching this last night and loving it! Also, I started bomb girls earlier in the year and can't wait to pick it up again once I have some more time on my hands! Seems we have very similar television taste! x

  6. Its getting rave reviews here in Australia - its been running for a few weeks. But unfortunately for me its not on a good time AND its not the kind of thing my husband will watch... so I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD and I will watch it in one marathon session :)

  7. I recorded the September 21 st episode and intend to check it out tomorrow. I am sure I will enjoy it as we seem to have very similar taste in films, etc. Thanks for turning me on or alerting me to this program in advance!
