Call the Midwife season 9 won’t be premiering until the new year, but that’s apparently not stopping the BBC from releasing some more information all about what’s coming! The ninth season is going to be one of course about change, but also about revitalization, wealth, and technology. It’s going to be hard for many of the midwives to keep up with the changes, especially with an ever-increasing population and more pressure put on Nonnatus than ever. With new people in the area come of course new diseases, and that’s going to cause some more trouble.
Suffice it to say, the troubles for some of these characters are going to be far from over after they get back from Scotland, the setting for this year’s Christmas Special.
Want some more details on the season now? Then take a look below:
Opening with the funeral of Winston Churchill in January 1965, series nine then continues with Nonnatus House entering a bold and innovative era. As the tower blocks multiply, and a new East End rises from the ashes of the old, society becomes more prosperous, but more complex. Our familiar team of medics and midwives face unexpected challenges as the population shifts, rules change, and old diseases come back to haunt them. Alongside the joy and optimism of birth, they must cope with cases including diphtheria, drug abuse, cancer, tuberculosis, and fistula. Meanwhile, their own experiences are fuelled by love, loss, and doubt – and the very fabric of their lives is jeopardized when Nonnatus itself comes under threat of demolition.
To go along with the official synopsis today, the show’s executive producer in Heidi Thomas also issued a new statement with more in terms of what this season will be:
“After a magical Christmas experience in the Hebrides featuring wild seas, stormy skies and some very disobedient sheep, we return to the harsher reality of city life in 1965. Society is changing fast and in series nine we will see Nonnatus House shaken to its foundations.”
Ultimately, let’s just hope that season 9 proves to be every bit as exciting — and dramatic — as some other ones that we’ve seen over the years. We know that there are some moments coming that will make us hopeful for the future, but we’re certainly aware that they will be mixed with some that make us well up. Call the Midwife wouldn’t be the show that it is without some sort of mixture of the two. We just want to see these characters happy away from work — especially Trixie, given all that she’s been through in between lost love and dealing with addiction. Are we finally starting to get to the point where she can move forward to the other side?
