We’ve long suspected that we’d enjoy hanging out on the set of Call the Midwife – and not just because we look pretty fetching in a red vintage cardigans.
While the drama itself is getting darker and tackling tough social issues, it’s obviously not dampening the actors’ spirits on set. In fact, the gang – who are currently filming the period drama’s fifth season – are clearly having a lot of fun…

They get special bunting on their birthdays
And eat loads of scones, presumably with jam and clotted cream
First day back on #callthemidwife. Celebrated by eating all the scones.

When they’re not indulging in sweet snacks, they have loads of weird and wonderful props to play with

Plus they get to spend almost every day here

Dressed like this
Wonder if they are in need of any more extras…?
Call the Midwife will be back on BBC1 this Christmas
