After a really big PUSH!!! BBC1 delivers a bouncing second series of its biggest drama hit in years. Everyone – nuns and midwives – is back at Nonnatus House to tend to the screaming mothers-to-be of 1958’s teeming East End tenements.
After a particularly grim Christmas special, the mood lifts ever so slightly when we return to Poplar, as the girls celebrate Jenny’s birthday with cake and a trip to the cinema to see South Pacific. There are some giggles after nice Dr Turner and his revolutionary nitrous-oxide machine cheer up the birthing mums no end, sending them into delighted stupors.
But the fun can’t last for ever. Jenny attends a young mother married to an abusive brute, while silly Trixie and battleaxe Sister Evangelina are called out to a difficult birth on a ship. As for dear old Chummy (Miranda Hart),
it seems like she might have itchy feet.
Jenny is concerned about a mum-to-be involved in an abusive marriage, while Trixie and Sister Evangelina find themselves in unusual circumstances on board a Swedish cargo ship looking after the captain's daughter, who is about to have her first child. Jessica Raine, Helen George, Pam Ferris and Miranda Hart star.
