Call the Midwife Holiday Special

Call the Midwife Holiday Special


The Call the Midwife Holiday Special has become a much-anticipated holiday tradition.

This year, the midwives are staying in London, even though they are facing the challenge of the harshest, coldest winter in 300 years. It is the winter of 1963 and the whole country is brought to a standstill by blizzard conditions, ice, power outages and frozen pipes.

Despite the weather, the midwives strive to provide the best possible care for their patients. You’ll see Valerie give comfort and assistance to a young couple who experience a traumatic birth, watch Sister Julienne struggle as she strives to reunite a family torn apart by a tormenting father and get to know Mabel, played by guest star Anita Dobson.

Here’s a sneak preview for Season 7, which starts in the spring of 2018—Leonie Elliott will join the cast as Nurse Lucille Anderson, the first West Indian midwife to be featured in the series. She brings new energy to life at Nonnatus House.

The Call the Midwife Holiday Special airs Monday, December 25, at 9 p.m. on SCETV.
