CALL THE MIDWIFE
Sunday, 8.30pm, ABC1
This movie-length start to the second series was originally made as a Christmas special and has all the schmaltz and tears you would expect.
There’s a Christmas concert, an unexpected birth, and the saving of more than one soul with a few humorous moments thrown in.
Everyone is back from the first series including the now not-so-innocent new nurse, Jenny, the hapless midwife, Chummy, and the world-weary sisters of Nonnatus House.
Expect no more than the same warm-hearted story telling that made it such a hit and you won’t be disappointed.
