Call the Midwife: Series 1

Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this BBC drama series tells the moving stories of a group of midwives working in London's East End in the 1950s. Newly-qualified midwife Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine) is the latest arrival at Nonnatus House, a convent in one of the poorest areas of London. Jenny is welcomed by the nuns and befriended by the other midwives - good-time girl Trixie (Helen George), sensible Cynthia (Bryony Hannah) and fellow newcomer, the posh, fish-out-of-water, Chummy (Miranda Hart). We are introduced to the local community through the eyes of the young nurse as she cycles out to tend to her patients. Although the life that greets Jenny is a world away from what she's used to, she immerses herself in the births, deaths, intrigues and romances of a community she rapidly learns to love.
