I know that this is the domain of the loyal Downton-Abbeyans
, but I am COMPLETELY in love with this BBC drama! "Call the Midwife" is a series set in post-war Britain, and it follows the life of a new midwife, Jenny Lee, as she goes to work in the East End, as based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth.
The series is very realistic - it explores all (and I mean ALL, short of showing nudity) the details of birth and pregnancy, but rather than focusing on horror-birth-stories like most tv series seem to, I really appreciated the humanity of "Call the Midwife". It explores the lives of women, the realities of poverty, family life, post-war Britain - a beautiful series overall.
"All "Call the Midwife" stories are not created equal, but all babies bring with them a world of possibility and love, and, whatever its missteps, it's hard not to fall for a story that hangs so much on that belief. "
