Call the Midwife

Your favorite midwives return for a new season of BBC's immensely absorbing and popular drama, set in poverty-ridden East London in the late 1950s. With Nonnatus House scheduled for demolition, Jenny (Jessica Raine), Chummy (Miranda Hart) and Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) search for a new location nearby, while Jenny's relationship with Alec continues to blossom. But an outbreak of polio affects the nurses and nuns more than they could have imagined. Hop on a bicycle and share sadness and joy, tears and humor, struggle and survival in this award-winning drama, based on the best-selling memoirs of former nurse Jennifer Worth. Features the hour-long episodes as they originally aired in the UK and includes the 75-minute 2013 Christmas Special.

If you haven't seen Call the Midwife you are in for a treat.  Start with Season 1 and follow the lives, loves and challenges of a group of young women who deliver the many babies born in the east end of London in the 1950s.  You will be charmed and enthralled.  You will laugh and cry. You will be educated and entertained.  Don't miss this one.

Mr. Selfridge - Season 2



Mr. Selfridge Season 2 is the much-anticipated continuation of the British hit about the establishment of Selfridge's department store in London.  This ground-breaking series explores the lives, loves and challenges of one of London's premier stores.  Selfridge is at once lovable and irritating in his quest to build an empire.  Highly entertaining and addictive. 

 

 from Amazon.com: "Much has changed since Selfridges first opened its doors. Five years later, Europe is on the brink of war and London is enjoying one last defiant period of hedonism and decadence. Having rocked the retail world with his pioneering new store, Mr. Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) now has his sights set on joining the establishment and rebuilding his family life.

His desperate attempts to win back estranged wife Rose (Frances O Connor), are hindered by her friendship with Delphine Day, the daring and extravagant owner of a fashionable London nightclub. Tensions are also running high on the shop floor as Agnes is back from Paris, chic and successful. Not everyone is thrilled by her newfound confidence and by the sudden reappearance of her old ally Henri Leclair, who has mysteriously returned from America."
