‘Call the Midwife’ preview: First look at this year’s Christmas special

The BBC has released the first promotional image for this year’s festive episode of Call the Midwife.

A seventh season of Call the Midwife began filming earlier this year, with Black Mirror actress Leonie Elliott joining the cast as new regular midwife Nurse Lucille Anderson.

Call the Midwife writer Heidi Thomas has revealed that the new episodes will see “our beloved Nonnatus House team stretched to the limit, as they face a series of medical, social and emotional challenges.”

This year’s Holiday episode will air in December on PBS in the US and BBC One in the UK.

Here’s the first look at the cast…

Original Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine, who played Jenny Lee, recently admitted that she doesn’t watch the show anymore.

Season 6 is available to buy now on DVD.

Season 7 will air in spring 2018, shortly after its UK debut.
