Over the past ten years, BBC audiences have enjoyed and learned from Call the Midwife. Later this year, a Christmas special will kick off season 12. Thank goodness, audiences won’t have to wait too long for their next fix after the last episode kept viewers on the edge of their seats as a massive train catastrophe unfolded in Poplar.
While Dr. Turner and Sister Julienne’s lives were in danger throughout season 11, there were also a lot of heartwarming moments. In addition to the pair’s survival, the group portrait at Nonnatus House moved spectators all around the country. To assist everyone during the train emergency, Nurse Crane also made her way back from her lengthy vacation. Viewers are undoubtedly eager to see what their favorite East End characters have been up to since the plots are better than ever. So let’s review all we currently know about Call of the Midwife’s next episodes, including which people will be making their way back to Nonnatus House.
Will there be a special Christmas episode?
No doubt. The holiday edition of the program was taped early this year, and viewers have been kept up to speed on its progress. The Call the Midwife team posted a family photo of the Turners in front of a Christmas tree and gifts and wrote: “It was SO wonderful to have our beloved screen family back at work. We made sure to get this exclusive picture before the cameras started rolling. xx.”
What will the 12th season be about?
The particular stories for season 12 are unknown, however, there have been some hints. Author of the show Heidi Thomas gave listeners a preview of what to anticipate in an interview with The Radio Times. Series 12, which we are now filming, is set in 1968, she explained.” Women’s lives were very different, she said. Abortion was now permitted. More open discussion is being had regarding domestic violence. The pill had entered the picture. All of these factors altered how women experienced the world and how they viewed it, including both our regular and our guest characters.”
Thomas said that the program would also address the current anti-immigration mood in the UK as well as the resurgence of some problems from previous seasons. In a photo featuring Ned Shaw’s on-screen son Teddy and Dr. Turner actor Stephen McGann, the show also revealed that there would be a “very opulent outdoor celebration at Nonnatus House” in June.
