Season 7

Wednesdays from 30 October at 8.30pm Channel 007

The hugely successful drama returns with more laughter, tears and inspiring stories. Call the Midwife follows the nuns and nurses as they provide the expectant mothers of Poplar with the best possible care.


The year is 1963, and the midwives find themselves tested both personally and professionally as never before. All around them, they see the old East End vanishing, as the local community expands and familiar homes make way for bold new tower blocks and it’s not just the area that’s changing.

The much-loved characters are joined by West Indian midwife Lucille Anderson – a funny and clever nurse who brings a fresh burst of energy to life at Nonnatus House. Through her eyes we explore the experiences of the Caribbean nurses who came over in the 1960s.


Together, the midwives face challenging issues including leprosy, tokophobia, stroke and Huntingdon’s disease, all while fighting their own personal battles. Trixie’s romance with Christopher continues to develop, Nurse Crane finds her authority questioned from an unexpected quarter, Sister Monica Joan is forced to accept her failing faculties, and life for the Turners is turned upside down when Shelagh decides to employ an au pair.
