Filming begins on ‘Call the Midwife’ Series 3
Filming of the Call the Midwife Christmas special and third series has begun on location at the historic Chatham dockyard.
The eight-episode third series – which is being directed by an all-female line-up of Directors – will be broadcast in 2014.
Executive Producer, Pippa Harris, said: “I am very proud of the continued popularity of the show and how series 2 was so warmly received by the audience. Its success is down to the insightful writing of Heidi Thomas and to our fantastic crew and cast who I am thrilled are returning for series 3 to enjoy the dawn of the swinging sixties!”
The series 2 finale saw Nonnatus House under threat of demolition, a baby boy for Chummy and PC Noakes and a romantic marriage proposal between Dr Turner and Sister Bernadette. In series 3 it’s 1959 and the eve of the swinging Sixties. The winds of change are sweeping through the country and the residents of Nonnatus House face some momentous changes of their own.
