Must See TV: Call The Midwife: Season Four

A Vintage Nerd


I can honestly say Call the Midwife Season Four does not disappoint! After the main character of Jenny Lee (played by Jessica Raine) left the show at the end of Season Three I thought to myself, "Am I really going to enjoy the show without her?" I can tell you that Vanessa Redgrave who does the voice of the older Jenny Lee still introduces and concludes the show. I think still having that made it in a way that Nurse Jenny Lee never left.

This season is set in 1960 and it has the familiar faces of Chummy, Sister Julienne, Sister Evangelina, Trixie, Patsy, and Doctor Turner to name a few. There are two new nurses that come to live at the Nonnatus House house, Nurse Phyllis Crane and Nurse Barbara Gilbert.

It has already been picked up for a fifth season and I couldn't be happy. The stories are strong and moving and you don't feel the loss of Nurse Jenny Lee which I was grateful for. The hardest episode for me to watch so far has been episode three. Actually I have to say each episode has been really powerful. I applaud the writers for this show because they have not let the fans down.

Season Four will air in the spring in the U.S. on PBS and on PBS channel online for free. I will keep you posted on when it does.

Have you been watching Season Four of Call the Midwife? For those of you who haven't seen it yet, are you looking forward to it?

  1. I can't wait! I love Call the Midwife. I knew I wasn't going to have a problem without Jenny since season three pretty much had her as little as possible.

  3. I'm going to really miss Jenny, but I'm glad that they're giving Chummy more to do on the show. She's such an amazing and unique character to see on tv, I couldn't love her more.

  4. This is one of the best shows in recent years bar none. I ration out watching the episodes, saving them for days when I'm feeling extra sick or otherwise need a good pick-me-up, because CTM never fails to deliver there.
