Call The Midwife: New Series Starts On Sunday

It's the news all Call the Midwife fans have been waiting for - a new series of the medical drama hits our screens on Sunday.

The popular BBC series, which first aired in 2012, is returning for its 10th outing.

In preparation for the show's return to our screens, Call the Midwife's official Twitter account shared a short video clip, featuring the women of the show.

"Video exclusive," they Tweeted. "Our leading ladies salute midwives, women, and the power of kindness and empathy."

Take a look at the video below:

"I think Call the Midwife has influenced society and midwifery," says Nurse Trixie Franklin actress Helen George in the short clip. "As a country, as a society, we're getting better at talking about women's issues so I definitely think it feeds into that movement of being able to talk about things that we weren't allowed to talk about."

Leonie Elliott, who plays Nurse Lucille Anderson, added: "We bow down to midwives, and to women generally, don't we? Well, we should."

Meanwhile, Laura Main, who plays nurse Shelagh Turner, added: "We just see kindness portrayed on the screen and I think, for a long time, that we maybe weren't seeing that on our TV screens and I don't think we were valuing it as a society either."

The show follows a group of midwives in the 1950s and 1960s, working in the East End of London and is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth.

The show's upcoming series was teased a few days ago, with a short trailer giving us a glimpse of what to expect.

The 30-second clip teased Cyril and Lucille's romance, Dr Turner wanting answers and the possibility that Nonnatus House may be going private.

Say it ain't so!

Call the Midwife airs on Sunday 18th April at 8pm on BBC One.
