Call The Midwife - Christmas Special

7:30pm Tuesday 25 December on BBC ONE

Christmas is coming and in Poplar the nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House are busier than ever.

When an abandoned baby is discovered on the steps of the convent, the whole community rallies round to provide food and clothing and to try to trace his mother.

Nurse Jenny Lee, meanwhile, gets caught up in the heartbreaking mystery that surrounds an elderly, semi-vagrant local woman, Mrs Jenkins.

For newly married Chummy, other challenges await, as she pulls out all the stops to mount a truly memorable children’s nativity play.

Jenny is played by Jessica Raine, Mrs Jenkins by Sheila Reid and Chummy by Miranda Hart.
