The BBC’s flag­ship pe­riod drama about a gang of mid­wife nurses in Lon­don’s East End in the Fifties and Six­ties goes from strength to strength, with se­ries eight cur­rently in pro­duc­tion. Far from just a cosy, heart­warm­ing Sun­day night in, the nurses and nuns of Non­na­tus House reg­u­larly deal with un­flinch­ing so­cial is­sues of the day (abor­tion, pros­ti­tu­tion, sin­gle moth­er­hood), while cre­ator Heidi Thomas’s sub­lime scripts keep fe­male em­pow­er­ment to the fore.
