DVD review: Make sure you ‘Call the Midwife’
Grade • A
DVD • If you haven't seen the BBC/PBS series "Call the Midwife," you don't know what you've been missing.
This fact-based drama is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth (Jenny Lee), who arrives in London's downtrodden East End in 1957 and is horrified by what she discovers. It's like something out of the 19th century — including pregnant women who have venereal diseases and one woman who is pregnant for the 25th time.
Jenny and the other dedicated young women and tough nuns get caught up in the lives of their patients in this charming, engaging drama.
The new DVD release features all 16 episodes from Seasons 1 and 2, and they're the longer, uncut versions that were seen in the U.K.
