Call the Midwife returns for third series

Call the Midwife returned to BBC One on Sunday 19th January to a record audience with over 9m viewers tuning in to watch the opening episode of the 3rd series which will include writing from Harriet Warner and Liz Lake, with direction from China Moo-Young.

While Nonnatus House was left in ruins at the end of series two, the nuns and midwives have found a new station to continue their work in the East End, as the series slips into the 1960s. Harriet wrote episodes two and seven and is a key member of the writing team and a brilliant third episode comes from Liz Lake. Bryony Hannah also returns as midwife Cynthia Miller.

China Moo-Young also returns to the feel-good Sunday night drama, to direct episodes five and six, following on from the two blocks she directed on series two.

Call the Midwife airs on Sunday nights on BBC1 at 8pm.
