Call the Midwife Christmas Special: Scotland
Tea Time Tidbit for the week of July 22, 2019
Christmas may be a few months away, but the Call the Midwife Christmas Special has already finished filming.
Filming in the Outer Hebrides
This year’s special takes place in the Outer Hebrides – a chain of remote islands off the west coast of Scotland. It’s a location where residents have limited access to water and electricity, and nurses and midwives are in short supply. Judging from the recently released publicity photos for the special, the midwives had more than the harsh elements to deal with – but no doubt Mother Mildred put those unruly sheep in their place.
Filming is now underway for Series 9 of the show, which has now moved into the mid-1960s and starts in 1965 with the death of Sir Winston Churchill. According to Executive Producer Dame Pippa Harris, the Nonnatus team will be facing “challenging new medical and social changes, with their customary winning combination of steely determination, empathy and love.”
The Call the Midwife Christmas Special will air, as usual, on Christmas Day, with the first episode of season 9 coming to PBS sometime next spring. If that seems too long of a wait, you can enjoy Call the Midwife season 7 on MPT, Thursday evenings at 9pm.
