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 Two airs Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 8 p.m. & will repeat on Sunday, April 14th at 7 p.m. just prior to Episode Three - The Nonnatus community is rocked when the Kelly family’s newborn son dies in unexplained circumstances.
Cynthia, who had attended the birth, comes under intense scrutiny from the police and the pregnant women of Poplar.
Despite reassurances from her friends and colleagues, Cynthia questions her own abilities and the strain takes its toll on her work and health.
Now fully ensconced in married life with PC Noakes, Chummy decides to pursue her dream, bringing about a different sort of pressure. Meanwhile, a chance encounter returns Jimmy to Jenny’s life.
