Hello there Call The Midwife fans!!
We are thrilled to announce that our next Christmas Special will feature a very special guest playing the mature Jennifer worth ....none other than the wonderful Vanessa Redgrave!
As you probably know, Vanessa has played the voice of the older Jenny since our series began, but we've never seen her in the flesh. We are delighted that she will be appearing as the character, as well as continuing with her iconic voice-overs.
Pippa Harris, Executive Producer for Neal Street Productions said; "We're all delighted to be welcoming Vanessa Redgrave on screen, having hugely enjoyed her narration of the series to date."
Created and written by Heidi Thomas, the fourth series continues filming on location at the historic Chatham dockyard and at its studio base in Chertsey, Surrey. Audiences can expect to see a similar mixture of laughter and tears this time around, with fascinating and emotional stories celebrating the people of Poplar, and the much-loved residents of Nonnatus House. Series 4 sees the community of nuns and nurses in 1960, on the cusp of much change in London’s East End. A new decade dawns, and with it come different and exciting challenges for the team at Nonnatus House. Can the nuns and midwives hold onto their traditional values in a rapidly changing world?
Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer said;  “The medical, social, and emotional stories at the heart of Call the Midwife continue to inspire and compel me. The Nonnatus House nurses and midwives feel like my best loved friends.”
