Critic Reviews for Call the Midwife Season 3

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Call The Midwife and its ilk might include darker subjects from time to time, but lacking the nuance of serious drama they can never truly tackle them - so why bother?

Apr 1, 2014 | Full Review…

Call the Midwife is both historically unsparing-the grim realities of poverty drive most episodes-and gorgeously hopeful.

Apr 1, 2014 | Full Review…

Call the Midwife is a celebration of life

Aug 11, 2017 | Full Review…

Their stories are always engaging, not only because midwifery as it was practiced in the '50s is so interesting, but also because the midwives themselves are fully realized characters.

Jun 2, 2014 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

As one of the show's best characters, I am excited to see Shelagh continue to have a compelling storyline this season. Joy is wonderful, but there is more narrative potential in heartbreak.

Apr 14, 2014 | Full Review…

It's nice to see the writers stay on topic, and it actually makes the forays into tough territory that much more interesting. If you like healthy doses of both comedy and drama in one helping, than Call the Midwife is a great show to be on board for.

Apr 1, 2014 | Full Review…

What makes Call the Midwife special is how the stories grip us on a human level.

Apr 1, 2014 | Full Review…

It might be a bit obvious sometimes, but its warm, open tone, its friendly, empathic treatment of its characters and its life-and-death subject matter all come together to make for something unique.

    Invisible wounds are the hardest to heal. for their closure depends on the love of others and on patience understanding and the tender gift of time.

    Definitely a binge watch! Loved this show. It is kind of reminiscent of Friday Night Lights, the sense of place is so strong, and make me feel like I want to go live in their world. It's really nice to see a show where the principle characters are women, active women doing significant things, delivering new life into the world no less.

    Watch this… Extremely insightful, funny, sad and showing how people were "connected"…we need that now...
