    I loved Call The Midwife last night, especially when they were in the women's prison. I do hope there is another season, their characters are just wonderful

    I did LOL when Chummy said, she had only been on nodding terms with her inner glamour puss .I love Chummy. I also guessed those tickets were fake.

    I liked it last night. The whole women's prison section was interesting. I know that Jenny Lee is going to not be on as much, but as long as Chummy is I'm happy!

    No, they've been renewed. I know that they said they've run out of Jenny stories and are going off-script. I think that was as of this season, but maybe it will be as of next season, I don't remember.

    There were only 3 "Midwife" books I believe, so I can understand they would. Her fourth book was on end of life care and her experiences.

    Did anyone see Piven on Kelly and Michael today? Was Kelly kidding when she told him he had a mean English accent? He then informed her he played an American on the show. Was that said on purpose? Awkward. lol

    It was awkward BUT I loved it. Talk show hosts often get caught phoning it in. This is an example of Kelly not doing her homework and assuming Jeremy spoke with an English accent because the show was filmed in England with all English actors.
