Once again, I was very privileged to be invited to a preview screening of 'Call the Midwife', this time it was the 'Christmas Special'. You can read about my first preview here). It was a Star studded event, as well as the some of the stars I met before, I met Cliff Parisi (Minty from Eastenders) who plays Fred, he is a lovely man, I hope he'll forgive me for suggesting he was in the Royle Family, I'd had a couple of glass of wine and was a little fuzzy at that point. I also met the Midwife who advises and helps with the births on set, the medic and the lady who runs the Facebook, Call the Midwife Appreciation Society!
The Christmas Episode is fabulous, every thing you'd expect and more... A birth, Some drama, Some laughs, Another birth, Some tears, Some Christmas Tradition, Some heart wrenching, More laughs and overall, its a feel Good Christmas Drama! I Loved It! It is perfect for Christmas Day!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, I will be sure to tune in again Christmas Day @ 7.30pm.
By the way, Heidi Thomas, the script writer has written a companion book to go with the series, which will make a great Christmas Present for any fan The Life and Times of Call the Midwife
