Call the Midwife series three air date and time confirmed

The BBC1 period drama, starring Jessica Raine, Miranda Hart and Jenny Agutter, will be back on Sunday nights for series three

They may not have a place to call home (yet) but those Poplar midwives are back nonetheless. 


Chummy, Jenny, Trixie and co will be bursting back onto our telly screens on Sunday 19 January at 8:00pm.

It hasn’t been that long since we last saw the heartwarming BBC1 drama – Call the Midwife graced our screens with an explosive (literally) episode on Christmas Day – but boy are we glad to have them settled down on our TV screens for a whole SEVEN episodes. 

The new series will follow on from the corker of a festive special, which saw Shelagh wed Doc Turner and Nonnatus House be demolished after a bomb was detonated in Poplar. The first episode is likely to see the midwives moving into their new home, which Helen George, the actress who plays Trixie, assures us is all “fun and frolics.”

“It’s a more modern environment,” George, told us. “This is sort of a bit more Mad Men-y, a bit more stark lines. Not sixties because we are still just 1959, but it’s getting modern.”

Sounds exciting, right?

Call the Midwife series three starts on Sunday 19 January at 8:00pm on BBC1.
