Purchasing the most recent season broadcast on PBS was a foregone conclusion for me! My collection includes each season even though I've watched all the episodes already. Call the Midwife's eighth season was one of the best! I highly recommend both this incredible series and this particular season. You will be hooked after only watching one episode! You will laugh, cry, think and feel ... about the characters, the stories presented, and the year that each season is based upon ... the full gambit. Your time will not be wasted. "It takes a village" could be its motto!
