Every time I sit down to watch a new season of BBC’s Call the Midwife, I underestimate the sway it holds. By now I should have long since learned excellence is commonplace. There hasn’t been a time I didn’t sit in awe of what a beautiful and poignant series this is, and yet with each new season, I’m reminded anew at depth and strength of its emotional impact.
CONTENT: Some pregnancies are the result of out of wedlock relationships, and there is an episode that deals with the contraceptive pill being introduced. A man brutally beats up numerous women (off camera); prostitutes are involved in some cases. Every episode involves a scene of childbirth, some more intense than others. There are plenty of thematic, more "mature" themes presented throughout.
