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


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.
