As Call the Midwife enters its historic tenth season, it’s clear that 20 years after World War II, no one is tired of the graphic, real-life births and shivering babies in London’s East End. The British series, which is about nurses, midwives, and nuns, is a unique act. His approach is very specific, but somehow, within his limitations, he cuts through a wide range of subjects. Led by charming staff and characterful guests.
Call the Midwife
In 1966, the Nursing Monastery of the Midwife’s Call Center, the Nonnatos Monastery, expanded. Lady Emily’s clinic, a private facility, calls on Sister Julian (Jenny Actor) to bring her ordered supplies to care for her patients. While Dr. Turner (Stephen McGann) finds the move disgusting, Sister Julianne is too practical to refuse the money the service would bring to Nunt’s House, making it the home of financially disadvantaged families. How will support continue? In your area, poplar.
She calls Trixie (Helen George), Lady Emily’s doctor, who says “Delicate if you’re decorative”. Dressed in a pink nurse’s uniform and tight black stockings, Trixie is excited about the job and says, “Her garden parties are in Tatler!” Instead, shocked and frustrated by the clinic’s outdated attitudes and practices, she begins to change her behavior. In a confident and optimistic way everything will be fine, call your midwife, she can do this with your first delivery with the doctor’s agreement. Unreal, but it still looks good.
Because Trixie is Trixie, she continues to question Lady Emily’s way of doing business. His anger extends to how rich women get safe and healthy abortions, while those who risk their lives for no reason “on a table above a bar!” She’s so cute no matter what she does.
The nuns are ready to change up their looks as they update their habits to some pretty shades of blue that wouldn’t look out of place on Carnaby Street. This is to the chagrin of Sister Frances, who doesn’t like to show her knees: “I became a nun for a reason.”
Sister Frances struggles to get out of her comfort zone with the help of some pop culture magazines to update her perspective so she can better communicate with her patients. She is at her best when she does what she knows is good in her heart. She is particularly excited when she tells a female warrior who asks about her boss, “I’m good enough to handle it.”
There are true stories of the biological side effects of thalidomide from legless children and soldiers serving near nuclear test explosions.
Still, there was a glimmer of goodwill. That’s partly because the series’ favorite couple, Sister Lucille Anderson and Reverend Cyril Robinson, who still happily gaze at each other, bring a palpable warmth to every scene they encounter. When you hear Cyril say to Fred Buckley (Violet Buckley’s favorite another half) “Hey, I’m still working up” makes you cringe.
The four new interns at Nunt’s House add some charming characters, as well as a touch of ’60s flair. Learning curves and twists have caused ups and downs in the journeys of experienced midwives, alienating some mothers and winning others over. … Nancy (Megan Cusack), a witty and quirky college midwife, is the most left-handed of the young, which makes her the funniest and most unpredictable in her actions and statements.
The themes of women’s rights and social progress are strong in this season. Contraceptives, controversial last season, have become popular. Abortion is debated in parliament. Homosexuality is not yet legal, but it is not deeply hidden, conversion therapy is already taking place, but the medical world at least supports and understands those who are inclined, almost unrealistically. New diseases were discovered, as well as new hairstyles and weave. Call the midwife on time. Seven episodes this season is not enough, but there will be a special on November 21, 2021.
