Call the Midwife Returns!

12th April 2021

Call the Midwife is to return with Series 10 on Sunday 18th April on BBC1!

This year, we are proud to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of Call the Midwife!  Following the huge success of the Christmas Special which was the most watched show in the UK on Christmas Day, we are delighted to confirm that Call the Midwife will be returning to UK screens this week. The much-loved, much-missed midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House will be returning to Poplar, midwifery bag in one hand, bicycle in the other.

Series 10 continues to explore complex medical and personal situations on the midwifery and district nursing rounds. 1966 is a testing time for the team, but also one of enthusiasm as political discussions about women’s rights begin to come to the fore. 

Sister Julienne is determined to steer Nonnatus House out of its financial quandary and Trixie, who needs a professional challenge, is the perfect candidate to help.

Dr Turner is faced with an array of difficult cases including a former soldier who was involved in Nuclear test explosions and a patient who has Munchausen’s. Meanwhile, Sister Monica Joan must overcome her crisis of faith following the devastating fall at Christmas.

Lucille and Cyril’s relationship goes from strength to strength but, although the Buckle’s professional life is on the rise, their personal life is tested.

Sister Frances has come a long way since her first day in Poplar and realises she needs to be less unworldly if she is to have a greater understanding of the local women. 

There are some interesting changes ahead in 1966 alongside celebrations as England win at the World Cup!

Please join us in Poplar on Sunday 18th April at 8pm on BBC One!
