While we may not officially have a premiere date for the rest of “Call the Midwife” season 4 at present, we can at least attest to some other knowledge: How the show plans to continue to spread change throughout the entire region of Poplar and Nonnatus House.
Following the move by Cynthia in the Christmas Special, the man for the time being is to continue to press the story along slowly. You will see some changes throughout season 4, but that does not mean that things are going to suddenly be different for Trixie or anyone else anytime soon. Speaking about this per the Radio Times, show creator Heidi Thomas had the following to say:
“The world didn’t go from black and white to colour at midnight on the 1stJanuary 1960 … Throughout the series we’ve been addressing this very slow and gradual progression of social change, which ultimately will ignite into something much bigger in the middle of the 1960s.”
If we were to theorize on where this progression would ultimately lead, we would say that one of the desired endgames would be allowing the show to really show this progression upon looking back at it. For example, give us a full-spectrum view of where the show is at the end, compared to where it was back when we were looking at it in season 1. These are the changes that end up blowing our mind. A good comparison would be for fans of “Friends” to watch the final season, and then go back and compare it to the style and substance of the beginning. Times changed naturally, and never felt forced.
