    I wish it were on now
    So do I ! I really love this show and wish that they would air it here at the same time as they do in the UK!

    I never did understand why that is. Maybe the next time PBS is soliciting "donations" I'll call and ask them.

    Maybe it has something to do with the rights to this show in the UK.I don't know.

    Again, thanks for posting.

    I'm fairly certain I read series 4 jumps ahead 6 months from Matthew's death.

    6 months sounds about right.

    Okay then Mary as his widow would definitely be following the mourning etiquette of the day and so would his mother. I am not certain about the "extended" family and the staff ... although I am pretty sure the home would be in a state of mourning with no party's and celebrations.

    My guess for the delay in the U.S. is that they hope to see more DVD's before they allow it to be aired here on PBS. That's just supposition, though.

    Did I miss posts about the Call the Midwife season finale?
    I just love that show!

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    Re: Masterpiece Theater shows (PBS)

    I've watched the first 4 episodes of season one. Is it possible to get through one episode of the two seasons without shedding a tear at the end?
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    ^ Call the Midwife? No, they believe in hankies.
    Haven't gotten a chance to watch the finale yet....my Dvr "ate" the middle episodes so I had to sort that out. I'm sure more hankies will be needed. I'm almost loathe to watch it because then it'll be over and I'm not sure when -if? - season 3 comes out. I have liked how the second season has drawn more out of the other characters - from Trixie, whose breezy and flirty "modern" personality belies an old-fashioned girl who won't give in to a tv host's advances, to "little" Cynthia and her standing up to the diabetic "bully" to Sister Bernadette's crisis of conscience. But I have missed Chummy - was happy to have her back in the penultimate episode.

    Oh my goodness, I think I went through 2x more hankies for series 2 of Call the Midwife than series 1. So good though!
