Hit drama Call the Midwife will return with a special holiday episode on Christmas Day in the UK.
The 1950s period drama’s Christmas special will feature a storyline about an abandoned baby left on the steps of the convent and the midwives’ desperate search for the child’s mother. Among other things, obviously – though I must confess I’m most interested in seeing how married life is treating Chummy, simply because she’s my favorite. The trailer looks very sweet and just generally seems perfectly Christmassy (though the BBC appears to be touting the drama as a “grittier” alternative to fluffier holiday fare like Downton Abbey).
No, there’s no hint yet as to when we might see the Christmas installment here in America, though it seems safe to assume that it will probably be packaged in somehow with the import of the drama’s Series 2 run, which starts early next year in the UK. (Though again, that's just a best guess. Keep an eye out for future updates.) Take a look at the trailer for yourselves below.
