Call the Midwife gets third series
Plans for a third series of BBC period drama Call The Midwife have been revealed.
Screenwriter Heidi Thomas has admitted that she will have used up all the material from the memoirs of Jennifer Worth – who worked as a midwife in East London in the 50s – but she is to write another season.
The 50-year-old told Radio Times magazine: ”I will have done by the end of the second series. But don’t worry. It doesn’t mean the show will end. The characters will be well developed by then and Jennifer was happy for us to continue.”
Jennifer – who died of cancer before the first Call The Midwife was aired – left a note for Heidi after reading the first two scripts.
The message read: ”I leave this to you in confidence.”
The second series of ‘Call the Midwife’ is current airing on Sundays at 8pm on BBC One.
