Audience Reviews for Call the Midwife: Season 1

  • Mar 22, 2021
    Pretty Good , I'm watching season 7 now , but , I still think this season is the best one . It will soon become more predictable. The characters development is so complete that some of you will be unable to recognize the same characters from season one.

    I adore this show. I've started binge watching it on Netflix. I find myself tearing up at the tender moments and words of wisdom. It is easy to become attached to the individual characters and then not want to see any of them depart the story lines.

    Enjoyable. love the soundtrack. Pretty wholesome. My curiosity over the man Jenny loves is peaked quite. Only reminds me of how much I always wanted to Midwife. Subject matter and a few topics are more grown up. A few bits of cussing and one makeout scene: i can confidently introduce the show to my mum or watch with some younger family.

    Love this show! Can't wait for season 4 to come to Netflix. Stories about how love impacts family and community told through the eyes of a group of nurses. Thought provoking and inspiring stories. A most watch for the romantics out there. So refreshing to watch instead of all the reality show craziness, questionalbe dramas, bad news and political shenanigans we have on TV today.
