The period drama has become such a festive TV tradition that reviewing it feels almost churlish - like reviewing my grandma's Christmas card.
This was a return to form: an absorbingly paced, perfectly judged slice of Sunday-night pleasure.
Although you know full well it deals in schmaltz and shameless heartstring-pulling, Call the Midwife exerts a strange power.
Would that the dialogue and characters enjoyed the same loving attention as the preggers ladies or the props.
Now in its latest season, Call The Midwife is a well-oiled machine. It's part Pollyanna, part Shortland Street and part Dr Phil.
Audience Reviews for Call the Midwife: Season 8
Sep 22, 2019Season 8 was horrific. I used to love the show when it was based upon Jenny Lee's true memoirs, but season 8 descended into pure social justice swill. It showed midwives forcibly removed elderly patients from their homes in the name of the law and helping young girls to leave their families by offering them government welfare. To make it worse, the season focused heavily on the horrors of abortion, only to come to the conclusion, in the last 5 minutes of the final episode, that the act of murdering babies and destroying lives would somehow be made better if it were legalized by the government. And it even showed the abortionist/murderess in a forgiving light. I'm disgusted. Never watching the show again.
