LATEST CALL THE MIDWIFE FESTIVE UPDATE:
The BBC have just released details of this year’s festive Call the Midwife episode.
This time Trixie, Barbara and co are heading off to South Africa as they get ready to get to work at Hope Clinic Mission Hospital.
“The Christmas Special will see Call the Midwife transported to the Eastern Cape,” the BBC confirms. “Nonnatus House receives an SOS from a tiny mission hospital. Understaffed, underfunded, and with a poor water supply, struggling Hope Clinic is faced with closure. Can our much loved medics and midwives make a difference to the people whose lives depend upon its work?
“Far from home and everything familiar, the team are both shaken and exhilarated by the challenges they face – and by the time the mission trip is over, some lives are permanently changed…”
Executive producer Pippa Harris says, “With our Christmas Special set against the dramatic backdrop of South Africa, and the return of our beloved Chummy to Poplar, series six is shaping up to be our strongest yet.”
