Call the Midwife is well and truly back. Nine months after they were last on our telly screens the midwives of Nonnatus returned to claim their place as a Christmas classic.
We met an elderly Jenny Lee (played by Vanessa Redgrave), had religious realisations, fought against prejudice and cared for the vulnerable. Plus enjoyed plenty of suitably-festive scenes: snowflake dances, actualsnowflakes, mince pies, giant Christmas trees and flaming puddings.

Chummy and Patsy headed off to look after the inhabitants of a poorly-run mother and baby home while PC Noakes sat his Sergeants exams, again. Meanwhile Cynthia pondered joining the religious order, while caring for a couple who had been released from a Victorian mental hospital.

If you ask me, being snuggled up with Chummy and co for company was a heartwarming way to spend an hour and a quarter this Christmas. I challenge anyone not to feel even a tiny bit teary in the final few minutes. 
But what did you think? Did Call the Midwife's generosity and gentleness have you blubbing and reaching for your handkerchief? Or was the series' sweet and sentimental message a bit much for you post-Christmas lunch? 

Are the midwives of Nonnatus Christmas institutions? Or could you do without the red cardigan-ed residents of Poplar?

  8. Thank you, most sincerely for this long and tender love story. For that is what it is, love in so many forms and reachings-out. Of all the episodes, I think the characters of Victor and Nancy, and his definition of love, have most moved my heart. They have taught me what I needed to know about love. I wish you all the blessings of Christmas. May the season bring you unexpected joys and wonders.
