Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, the popular BBC drama, Call The Midwife, is back for a fourth series. Set in 1950s East London, it follows Jenny, a young midwife who works at a nursing convent located in a very deprived area of London. Jenny has her eyes opened to the harsh living conditions of the city, but she also discovers the bravery and generosity of the mothers she attends to.

Starring many familiar faces including Jessica Raine (The Woman in Black, Robin Hood) Pam Ferris (The Darling Buds of May, Little Dorrit), Miranda Hart (Miranda), and Vanessa Redgrave (Nip/Tuck, The Whistleblower), the cast are back and the series is looking to be more popular than ever.

As in previous series, The Historic Dockyard Chatham was used to film many of the London streets scenes and facades. The Ropery and various cellars and tunnels also feature in series 4.

The Historic Dockyard Chatham is set over 80 acres, and boasts more than 100 Georgian and Victorian buildings and is a very popular place to film, previously attracting big feature films such as Sherlock Holmes 1 & 2, Children of Men and TV dramas such as BBC’s Oliver Twist.
