The New Series (Series 8) will begin airing on Sunday 13 January 2019!
Most of the much-loved cast are expected to be returning for series 8 of Call the Midwife.
Helen George is set to continue her role as midwife Trixie Franklin along with Linda Bassett as Phyllis Crane and Jennifer Kirby as Valerie Dyer.
Newcomer this season Leonie Elliott is set to be reprising her role as Lucille Anderson going forward.
Sadly, Charlotte Ritchie will not be returning as Barbara Hereford following the tragic death in episode seven.
The show always starts filming in April, so by the time it comes to the Christmas special — which usually features snow — it's boiling hot outside. Laura Main and Stephen McGann (who play Shelagh and Patrick Turner) regularly appear on set in big coats with bathing costumes worn underneath.
When temperatures soar, Helen George, who plays Trixie, hires an ice cream van to serve the cast and crew frozen treats.
The midwives made an emotional exit at the end of the last series. There was a tear-jerking series finale, filled with wonderful clips of colleagues past and present and a celebration of Sister Monica Joan.
Series seven's final episode left us with lots of questions about what's next for our favourite nurses and their friends. Will Jack Ashton's Tom pack his bags and head off to do missionary work now that his beloved Barbara has passed on? Will Trixie return to Nonnatus House? And how will she cope with the return to the daily routine and her continuing battle with alcoholism?
The new series will focus on the Sixties and the impact it had on women at the time, from fashion to newly introduced contraception.
Barbara's condition is diagnosed but remains touch and go. Dr. Turner urges a teen husband in jail to turn his life around. Lucille tries a new church.
