Very funny, real-life type of humor. The kind you would expect in England in the fifties. Nuns and prostitutes, touching stories, funny situations. I can't wait to see it again. I love Chummy! She is so uncoordinated, yet learned how to ride a bike! I would definitely recommend it as a must-see!! I'm going to buy the DVD set so I can watch it over and over!!

The story line seems interesting BUT as an American I found it very hard to understand the dialog. Before anyone jumps down my throat, let me say that I buy mostly British DVDs, enjoy them and recommend them. For example Downton Abby, Larkrise to Candleford, As Time goes by, all complete series and have no trouble understanding them. Midwife has a strong "accent" perhaps "cockney". Whatever I won't buy this series for that reason.

Comments about PBS Call the Midwife Season 1 DVD:

As a Nurse in Boston for 30yrs, the struggles of the community and of the Midwives themselves are timeless. The abiding issues and suffering continue worldwide. This program beautifully portrays this, while showing us how life goes on with love and hope! Thank You PBS!

An all-time favorite TV series!

Comments about PBS Call the Midwife Season 1 DVD:

Call the Midwife is one of the few shows or movies that I ever watch a second time. I love the stories. I turn on closed captioning to catch all the dialog since I am American. (To turn on closed captioning go to Menu, then choose Setup, then turn on the captioning.)
