Here’s a great way for Call the Midwife fans to pass the time until the arrival of the next season.
Set in the late 1950s, the BBC’s hit period drama about a group of nurse midwives working in the East End of London launched in January 2012.
The game’s description reads: “Be part of the popular drama Call the Midwife, by helping women all over Poplar as they go into labour! The midwives of Nonnatus House have never been so busy, delivering babies in all sorts of locations!
“Will you get to your next delivery on time or will you be required to divert to the Surgery to assist Dr Turner? Try not to get a bicycle puncture or forget your delivery pack as you might be delivering twins or even triplets!
“Using easy to learn gameplay, roll the dice, collect cards and delivers babies! The midwife to deliver the most babies wins the game!”
2019’s Call the Midwife festive special airs this Christmas Day at 7pm on BBC One in the UK and at 9pm ET on PBS Masterpiece in the US.
The show’s ninth season then starts in the UK in January and it’ll air in the US a couple of months later.
The official Call the Midwife board game is available on Amazon.
