What a relief! All the young midwives and good sisters return in the new season of the BBC's immensely absorbing and popular drama, set in poverty-ridden East London in the late 1950s.
With Nonnatus House scheduled for destruction, Jenny (Jessica Raine), Chummy (Miranda Hart), and Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) search for a new location as Jenny's relationship with Alec continues to bloom. Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, set in the late 1950s, narrated by Vanessa Redgrave, this hit British series is a fascinating look at midwifery, family life, and the plight of the poor and female. Seen on PBS. 10 episodes plus the 2013 Christmas special, 9 1/2 hrs, 3 DVDs.
Nonnatus House and the surrounding area is evacuated when an unexploded bomb is found nearby. Shelagh has doubts about her wedding to Patrick, and Jenny and Trixie help a man who is suffering from shell shock.
