Here's how to watch Call the Midwife 2021 online wherever you are in the world...

Call the Midwife 2021 is finally here, and it is all change at Nonnatus House as the Sisters try to bring in some much-needed funds. Here's how to watch Call the Midwife 2021 online anywhere in the world.

While traditionally we have been used to watching a brand new series of Call the Midwife in January, this year has been slightly differently due to the delay in filming caused by the pandemic.

But, while our favourite drama has been pushed back by a few months, the wait is finally over and a new series of Call the Midwife is here.

The first episode will see Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) and Doctor Turner (Stephen McGann) clash for the very first time over a new money-making venture. Sister Julienne enlists Trixie to head over to a private clinic, where she will spend six weeks seeing how the other half live. But, while Trixie couldn't be more excited, Dr Turner is horrified by the whole thing.

Elsewhere, Lucille and Sister Frances are saddened when a baby is born without legs, while Dr Turner fears Thalidomide and becomes adamant he is going to get to the bottom of what has caused this to happen.
