I almost never write reviews, but this series is so wonderful that I felt I had to write one. I am not a big fan of period or historical movies/series, but this series is one of the best shows I have ever seen. EVER. It took me until episode 2 to fully get into the characters/story line, but gosh, once I started watching I did not want to stop. I am so happy that there will be a season 3 at some point but it can't come fast enough for me. I like Downton Abbey but I LOVE this series.

This is one of the best series I have ever watched. No trials, murders, crime scenes, no f bombs. It is, however, harsh reality of the way things were at the time. I think it will appeal more to females but expect many men to enjoy it too. I cannot wait for the fourth season and have already paid for it. Oh, to live in a simpler era. I would love to see more series set in the 30s, 40 s, or 50s. Think I am getting too old.

If you, like me, missed the Christmas 2013 special of Call the Midwife you had a big question mark over your head at the 'Previously' that ran before the first episode of season 3 on PBS March 29th. This is the missing link. If you want to see it you'll have to get your fix here. It isn't available on PBS.
That said this is an awesome series that so far lives up to the last two. Great characters; great faith based values; definitely girl power but it is set in 1957-59 so it can only go so far.

I had to rewatch Season 2 to refresh my memory before I could watch the new season. Be sure to watch the Holiday episode BEFORE starting with Season 3 Episode 1. I really enjoy this series. When I can't Watch Downton Abbey on Sunday nights, it was good to find another show to watch.

It is always a temptation to think it would be fabulous to plan an all day or weekend marathon to watch each season. However, I can never watch more than one or two episodes at a time because in addition to being a captivating drama, I find it to be a highly emotional experience, on many levels. I love the Nuns and the Mid-wives, especially Sister Monica Jane, Chummy, and Jenny, and get thoroughly wrapped up in their experiences. I also find it very enlightening and thought provoking when seeing the situations they deal with and how they deal with them. As a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, I rarely find any show dealing with the Birthing Process or medical situations able to engage me beyond critiquing the accuracy with which this is portrayed. I can watch any episode of this series without getting caught up with how well it is done, rather than what is happening. It has sparked some very deep reflection on my part about what I do and how I do it, and whether progress in some aspects of medicine and patient care equates with improvement, or if sometimes there are some very important aspects of caring which have been left behind. This is also the first show dealing with medical situations that I have ever been able to share with my mother. She finds if every bit as captivating as I do, and it has given me a way to help her to understand some of what I deal with on an almost daily basis.

"Call the Midwife" is one of THE best programs I have ever seen. The characters are engaging, the storylines compelling. I love period pieces. Hats off Ms. Worth for sharing these marvelous stories with us.

But I was happy to find it here so I could figure out what I had just seen in the S3 premiere. It is also just a wonderful special in its own rights, and now that I enjoyed one seasonal aspect featured, I may watch again at Christmas to enjoy the other. If you love CTM, this is not to be missed.

This show is a sentimental love letter to the British National Health Service. It shows how making even the most basic healthcare available to everyone made people's lives better in 1950s London. It is a little sappy at times, but it is a good show. The production values are excellent and the actors are superb.

This show is one of my favorites; however due to Jessica Raine leaving, the last episode of the season is a disappointment. It just ends with a narration from Vanessa Redgrave explaining that the man she just met becomes her husband and they have two daughters.... What? I'm not sure how the BBC and PBS think the show can go on without the main character. The other characters are strong, and they've already taken artistic liberties and deviated from the original memoirs of Jennifer Worth. Let's hope they figure out how to keep going while maintaining the integrity of the original "story".

This series shows one live childbirth after another. I have never seen so many childbirths. The powerful emotion brings tears to my eyes every time. I don't know how the director did it, but the outcome is incredible. Several of the beginning episodes seem like repeats of other stories I have enjoyed (A Taste of Honey), but the interpretation is different enough to keep things interesting. Now in Series 3 the story has branched out from the emotion of every childbirth to stories about each midwife. Still interesting, not quite as emotional. Still worth seeing. Much, much better than usual TV fare.
