Storyline

After consoling Chummy Sister Monica Joan is reminded of her rift with her own mother decades earlier and becomes distressed. Chummy and Peter decide that they will nurse the terminally ill Lady Browne at their house, helped by the nuns and midwives. She becomes appreciative of their efforts, becoming less hardened and more loving to Chummy before she dies whilst Sister Monica Joan also benefits from her part in helping. The Turners have double good news as they are finally accepted as adoptive parents and Shelagh's choir wins the local competition. Jenny meets Philip Worth, cousin of a patient, whom she will eventually marry and leaves the area to work at a hospice, though she will keep in touch with her 'family' and will never forget them.

What an excellent show
11 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is one of the best that has ever come out of the UK.. In fact from anywhere. BBC to thank, and take a bow. It is marvellously cast, with great production and direction and some of the birth scenes are second to none, and skilfully done. The stories are a mix of historically correct facts, (birth of the national health service, and the way that life existed, in that age), sadness, happiness, humorous anecdotes, dated colour predeceases, difficult living conditions, during and after the war, personal lives, and true to life experiences. The series are cast with wonderful actors, who all support each others work. The stories are exceptionally, well written and adapted from a book by a British Midwife My wife and I ( both British, of course) started to watch the first one, on PBS, thinking that it would be, a show for women, but were pleasantly surprised, and have been glued to the TV screen, ever since. We also obtained the DVD of each series, from the local library. Each new episode, we expect will not be as good, we think, but are pleasantly surprised, that the standard does not slip, like other popular shows that eventually run out of ideas Many Americans, have approached us to say how Britain produces, great shows like this, while America fails so to do.
