Call The Midwife: In search of a new home

Hannah King


When Call The Midwife discovered their much-loved Nonnatus House (filmed at St Joseph's College in Mill Hill, London), was to be redeveloped into luxury 21st century flats, they had no other choice than to go out in search of a new home. 

Luckily the new Nonnatus House featured in series three offered plenty of advantages.

Leading cast and production team members explain how the show’s creator Heidi Thomas and production designer Eve Stewart managed to bring the show into a whole new era:

Hugh Warren is a producer for Call The Midwife, Pippa Harris is an executive producer, Jessica Raine plays Jenny Lee and Pam Ferris plays Sister Evangelina.
Since settling into their brand new Nonnatus House, the cast have been eyeing up a few items from the set. They revealed which ones they’d quite like to take home:

In order of appearance: Victoria Yeates plays Sister Winifred, Judy Parfitt plays Sister Monica Joan, Jessica Raine plays Jenny Lee, Miranda Hart plays Chummy Noakes, Helen George plays Trixie Franklin, Laura Main plays Shelagh Turner, Pam Ferris plays Sister Evangelina, Jenny Agutter plays Sister Julienne, Bryony Hannah plays Cynthia Miller.
These interviews were filmed by BBC Worldwide and edited by Hannah King, a researcher in BBC TV and iPlayer.

Call The Midwife continues on Sunday, 9 February at 8pm on BBC One and BBC One HD. For further programme times please see the episode guide.
