wonderful British series
Posted by: napervillian
08/15/2013This has been shown on my PBS station. I kept hearing about it and started watching it. After watching it, I knew I wanted to watch it over and show it to other family members, so I will be buying each series as it comes out on dvd. The series came from books written by a midwife in London during the 50's, so some plots and characters are from her memoirs. The writing is so outstanding, I can't praise it enough. It is touching and moving without being maudlin or manipulative. The casting is brilliant and contains one of my favorite characters ever - the nurse, 'Chummy'. It is even more popular in Britain than Downton Abbey.
