The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The first se­ries, based on the mem­oirs of Jennifer Worth about her early ca­reer work­ing in the slums of Lon­don’s East End in the 1950s, was so sickly sweet and whole­some, it would be easy to tire of young mid­wife Jenny Lee and her do-gooder friends. And yet the blend of heart-warm­ing and heart-break­ing sto­ries, quirky char­ac­ters and nos­tal­gia con­tin­ues to im­press. While the first se­ries was pre­dom­i­nately about the work, the sec­ond builds on the away-from-work lives and the dreams of the res­i­dents of Non­na­tus House. Their own tales are some­times as bleak as the lives of the women and fam­i­lies they are try­ing to help. ★★★ Ex­tras: Be­hind-the-scenes with cast in­ter­views ★★✩
