Call the Midwife Christmas Special, TV review: Jenny Lee may have left, but Miranda Hart and the rest of the midwives deliver the goods

The Independent

This was the third consecutive Call The Midwife Christmas special, not quite a yuletide institution, but established enough that it comes with expectations: at least one drama-fuelled birth, a social history lesson, and to be left with a warm fuzzy feeling – not just as a result of festive over-indulgence. This episode delivered, if with a sprinkling of mawkishness, but we’ll let it off because if there’s a time for sickly sweet, it’s today.
