Get excited Call the Midwife fans – the trailer for the popular period medical drama’s holiday installment is here, and it looks just as festive and emotional as we’ve come to expect from this show.

 The new special will air on Christmas Day in both the UK and the US.

 As celebrations swing into action, Poplar readies itself for Christmas 1960; a festive bus trip to see the Regent Street lights and a visit from a BBC film crew promise to make it a Christmas to remember. But it’s a difficult time of year for grieving mother Iris; bringing back memories of her long departed baby daughter. And at Nonnatus, things are tense as Sister Monica Joan determines to bring the Christmas spirit early, despite Sister Evangelina’s disgust. As the community pull together to prepare for the televised carol concert, Nonnatus is rocked when Sister Monica Joan goes missing.

 Shorter version: Keep your Kleenex handy, I’d expect.

Take a look at the new trailer for the Call the Midwife holiday special for yourselves: 

If you’ve spaced on some of the details of Call the Midwife since last season concluded, we’ve got recaps of every episode to help you refresh your memory.

Are you looking forward to seeing the ladies of Nonnatus House again?

Digital media type by day, she also has a fairly useless degree in British medieval literature, and dearly loves to talk about dream poetry, liminality, and the medieval religious vision.
