The long-running favourite is back for its eight series, which is now in the early 1960s.

As well as babies, Nonnatus House has two other new arrivals in the form of two new nuns joining them, with different levels of experience. As for the actual births, there are issues with a complicated multiple birth, and there is the case of one woman who suffers a botched illegal abortion.

Call the Midwife is on BBC One at 20.00.
