Attention Call the Midwife fans! Beginning 7 April 2018 and running through 28 October 2018, CTM fans worldwide can hop on their bikes and head to Poplar (actually, The Historic Dockyard Chatham) and go behind-the-scenes of the most-watched drama on BBC1 ever! Created by Heidi Thomas and entering into its 7th series on PBS beginning Sunday, March 25, Call the Midwife just concluded its run on BBC1 earlier this month and, as UK viewers can attest, once again, the series has more drama than the law allows as they continue to tackle a variety of topical subjects and contemporary social, cultural and economic issues and season 7 does not disappoint.
The 90-minute walking tour promises a look behind-the-scenes, as well as the chance to learn more about the show’s development and production. From seeing the docks, tenement buildings and ships featured in the well-loved show to the street where Chummy memorably crashed her bike in series 1!
The Call the Midwife tour also includes a new exhibition featuring iconic props and costumes, plus you’ll be able to see meticulous reconstructions of two sets from the series – The Nonnatus Dining Room, and the Clinic Room – as well as the medical equipment, bikes and prams used in the show.
