Season 5

Inspired by the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows the nurses, midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House convent as they visit the expectant mothers of Poplar; providing the poorest women with the best possible care.

Season 5 opens in the year 1961, and Poplar is beginning to feel the winds of social change with the improvements in housing, sanitation and healthcare. But for the midwives and nuns of Nonnatus House, it's business as usual, as they continue to care for the sick and bring new life into the world. The personal and professional lives of the nurses remain entwined, as events in their work impact on their personal choices.

Throughout the season, the midwives encounter complex and challenging medical cases, ranging from an outbreak of typhoid to the increase in lung cancer, a teenage pregnancy and a mother who vanishes.

But all are rocked when two babies with severe deformities are born under their care, several months apart from one another. As they struggle to understand why, they must find ways to deal with the resulting medical and emotional fallout.

Season 5 stars Jenny Agutter as Sister Julienne, Linda Bassett as Nurse Phyllis Crane, Judy Parfitt as Sister Monica Joan, Helen George as Trixie Franklin, Bryony Hannah as Sister Mary Cynthia, Laura Main as Shelagh Turner, Emerald Fennell as Patsy Mount, Charlotte Ritchie as Nurse Barbara Gilbert, Victoria Yeates as Sister Winifred, Stephen McGann as Dr. Patrick Turner and Cliff Parisi as Fred.

Recurring this season are Pam Ferris  as Sister Evangelina, Ben Caplan as Sergeant Peter Noakes, Jack Ashton as Tom Hereward, Annabelle Apsion as Violet Buckle, Kate Lamb as Nurse Delia Busby and Vanessa Redgrave provides the voice of the mature Jennifer Worth.

Call the Midwife is created and written by Heidi Thomas; Executive Producers are Pippa Harris and Heidi Thomas. The series is a Neal Street Production for BBC/PBS.
