Originally based on the memoir of Jennifer Worth, set in London’s poverty-stricken East End during the 1950s, series eight takes the nuns of Nonnatus House into the heady, swinging vibe of 1964.
The fashion and mood is colourful, and the themes affecting women in this expectant and dramatic time of their lives remain true to Worth and the world she portrayed. In particular, women’s reproductive rights is a riveting issue, as series eight builds to a climatic finale, where the nuns’ crusade against a backstreet abortionist has very real and personal consequences. (Also includes the 2018 Christmas Special.)
