Given that you just jumped out of another period in British history in the 1920s with “Downton Abbey,” it may be understandable that you don’t want to come back to the present. Luckily, a good show like “Call the Midwife” may be all you need to want to jump back into that TV time machine again. Following the Christmas Special that was a solid performer for the BBC recently, the network unveiled today the latest trailer for the new season.
Season 3 is going to continue the stories set in East London in the 1950s, about how this group of midwives really handle the pressures of their job, of a changing society, and also their lives. The trailer also has some pretty great music to it that makes so much sense when you hear it. (After watching it, you’ll wish that you almost thought of it yourself.)
The only sad news about watching it is that there is still no indication as to when Jessica Raine and the rest of the cast will be back on your TV set … at least in Britain. The irony that comes with this is that PBS has already confirmed that the series will air in the United States on Sunday, March 30, and we are therefore back in a similar sort of situation that we had when “Sherlock” knew the premiere date in America long before we did in Britain. For whatever reason, the BBC really enjoys keeping you on pins and needles while they reveal everything to you.
But as we said, this one will be worth the wait, especially when there are a lack of great period dramas coming on between now and the start of “Mad Men”.
