BBC One has released the first trailer for this year’s Call The Midwife Christmas Special, which is set to premiere on Christmas Day (Friday December 25th) at 7:30pm.
Call The Midwife is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, who was a district midwife in London’s east end during the 1950′s and stars Jenny Agutter, Pam Ferris, Miranda Hart, Judy Parfitt, Helen George, Bryony Hannah, Laura Main, Cliff Parisi, Charlotte Ritchie and Linda Bassett. An eight episode fifth season of Call The Midwife is set to air on BBC One in early 2016, while the BBC has also ordered another Special for 2016 and a sixth season to air in 2017.
In the special, Poplar readies itself for Christmas and 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. Over 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.
