CALL THE MIDWIFE, written by Heidi Thomas and based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, returns for a second series. Extended to eight episodes airing Sundays, March 31 - May 19, 2013, BBC One’s most successful new drama since ratings began sees the return of all its well-loved characters as well as some new faces.

L-R: Laura Main as Sister Bernadette, Robin Cameron as Dr. McGuinness (top), Stephen McGann as Dr. Turner, Pam Ferris as Sister Evangelina.

Nonnatus House opens its doors to warmly welcome the audience back into 1950s East End London and continues to follow Poplar’s community of exceptional midwives and nursing nuns.

The new series stays true to its roots — viewers can expect to see more births, babies and bicycling, plus blossoming romance from an unexpected quarter.

Episode Six airs Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 8 p.m. & repeats Sunday, May 12 at 7 p.m. just prior to Episode Seven - Dr. Turner is determined that Poplar will no longer live under the threat of tuberculosis.

While the nuns and nurses support his campaign to bring screening facilities to the area, Jenny’s nursing rounds lead her to a family that has suffered devastating misfortune from the disease.

Now, Jenny works to reconcile the dying father man and his only remaining daughter. Having secured a visit from a TB screening van, Dr. Turner pulls off an epic day, backed by the midwives, but little can prepare them for what the results will mean for one of their own.
