"Call the Midwife" Holiday Special
I just discovered some exciting news. The wonderful British television series Call the Midwife is kicking off its third season (set to start in March, 2014) with a Holiday Special which will be airing tonight on PBS. I adored the first two seasons and think it is one of the best shows to come out of Britain in recent years. Though the third season doesn't start until March, this holiday special acts as a sort of bridge between seasons two and three. Anyway, if you aren't home to watch this, be sure to record it to enjoy later since the reviews from Britain (where it has already aired) are excellent. It sounds like some very heartwarming and festive happenings are going on at Nonnatus House. This show about the nuns and midwives of Nannatus House providing free maternity care to the impoverished women living in the East End of London in the 1950's is a real gem. I love hearing Vanessa Redgrave's voice open each episode... Go here to read more about Call the Midwife. Enjoy!
