Arriving in stores today on DVD & Blu-ray is the critically acclaimed BBC series Call the Midwife: Season Two. The series is created & written by Heidi Thomas, which is based on the memoirs (Call the Midwife, Shadows of the Workhouse, and Farewell to the Eastside) by the late Jennifer Worth.
Call the Midwife is set in the poverty-stricken East London in the 1950's, where Jenny Lee (played by Jessica Raine), works at the Nonnatus House, a convent that serves as a hospital for the poor. Along side her are her fellow nurses Trixie, Cynthia, Chummy, and the Sisters, Julienne, Evangelina, Bernadette and Monica Joan, who are all midwifes, but attend to other medical situations that occur around the poor neighborhoods.
Season two brings many more challenges to the midwives as each patient comes with their own problems which eventually become the midwives' problems. Nurse Chummy and her husband PC Noakes head off to Africa for missionary work, but they later return with life changing news. Sister Monica Joan's age is quickly catching up with her. Sister Bernadette has a health crisis as she struggles with her feelings for Dr. Turner. Jenny’s best-friend, Jimmy, is getting married, which stirs past feelings for her.
