Call the Midwife returns this Christmas Day with a brand new festive special.
The nurses are off to South Africa for this year’s Christmas special, as they try to prevent a hospital on the Eastern Cape from closing down.
Set in 1962, the series sees all the key cast returning – minus Miranda Hart as Chummy – with guest star Sinead Cusack joining the Christmas special as Dr Myra Fitzsimmons, the woman in charge of Hope Clinic, the hospital under threat.
