Call The Midwife series 11 and Christmas special now

The cast of Call The Midwife are again gearing up to begin work on series 11 as well as this year’s Christmas special, which means fans have more to look forward to from the residents of Nonnatus House.

Inspired by Jennifer Worth’s memoirs, the drama has received high ratings and brilliant reviews since its debut in 2012, with the BBC recently commissioning Call the Midwife series 12 and 13 – airing until at least 2024.

Viewers have fallen in love with the show’s hot cast of characters, including Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter), nurse Trixie Franklin (Helen George) and Dr. Patrick Turner (Stephen McGann).

A new video was shared on social media accounts Call The Midwife announcing filming on the Christmas special and series 11 is officially underway, with Cliff Parisi wearing a Santa costume to mark the event.

“We’re back at the Christmas special, as you can see, perfect sunshine,” said McGann. “It’s always bright when we have to make a Christmas special film, but we are really happy to be doing the Christmas special and series 11 – how fantastic is that?”

Co-star Laura Main added: “Series 10 has just aired so it’s an unusual situation. We don’t usually broadcast and shoot at the same time, but what a thrill it was to get all that reaction and all the comments I’ve seen; really amazing to read. “

Filming for Call The Midwife was interrupted last year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but fortunately, the crew was still able to produce the Christmas special and it proved to be one of the most popular programs of the festive season.

Series 10 debuted on the BBC one weekend ago, so there are many more episodes to come as the nuns and midwives try to pull Nonnatus House out of its financial hardship.

The Midwife’s call continued on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 25 April. Follow now on BBC iPlayer. Check out more coverage of our Dramas or visit our TV Guide to see what’s on tonight.
