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.
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 Three airs Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 8 p.m. & repeats Sunday, April 21 at 7 p.m. just prior to Episode Four - Jenny is seconded to a short-staffed London Hospital to work on the male surgical ward. Hesitant about her temporary assignment, she becomes increasingly uneasy when she finds herself working under an intimidating surgeon.
Back in Poplar, Jane, a new addition to the household, lends a hand in Jenny’s absence. In one of their most unusual cases, the nuns and midwives meet a forthright pair of identical twins, one of whom is pregnant.
As the two come to terms with the impact a baby will have on each of them, Jenny unexpectedly helps to save the life of an old friend.
