Critic Reviews for Call the Midwife Season 5

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

If Vanessa Redgrave's doleful fortune-cookie narration about love and life still continues to grate, it's a small price to pay for a series that brings back events in living memory, contextualises them and consistently entertains.

Jan 19, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Its portrait of women navigating a world that's rapidly opening up yet still frustratingly restrictive... -- feels disarmingly honest and real.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

This drama leaves me conflicted: I cannot bear its twee, lame attempts at light relief, but then when it tackles brave, serious, public health stories it has me blubbing.

Feb 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Call the Midwife takes tragedy seriously, dwelling in the promise that medicine might treat human suffering as something essentially spiritual, not merely mechanical.

Jun 13, 2016 | Full Review…

I think the BBC was going for "heart-warmingly upbeat" when it commissioned yet another series of Call the Midwife. Sadly, what it got was more "gut-churningly twee".

Audience Reviews for Call the Midwife: Season 5

  • Apr 19, 2016
    Season 5 is already hanging on its thread. The story was very forced and the characters just aren't living up to the standard.
