Call the Midwife III, Part 1

Saturday, October 3 at 8:00 p.m.

The hit series' third season takes viewers to 1959, the eve of the Swinging Sixties. The winds of change are sweeping through the country and the residents of Nonnatus House face some momentous changes of their own.

The nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House move into their new premises, and Sister Winifred (Victoria Yeates), a warm-hearted, slightly innocent young woman, arrives from the Mother House.

Sister Monica Joan’s (Judy Parfitt) increasingly eccentric behavior causes concern, yet she’s the one who solves a perplexing medical mystery. New housewife and mother Chummy spearheads an Open Day at the Community Centre. After helping to deliver a neighbor’s baby, she decides she wants to return to midwifery.

"Call the Midwife," based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, tells colorful stories of midwifery and families in London’s East End.

Shown from L-R: Helen George as Trixie, Miranda Hart as Chummy, Jessica Raine as Jenny, Bryony Hannah as Cynthia.
