Call the Midwife season 12 kicks off right after this year's Call the Midwife Christmas special, and by the sounds of things, it will be an unmissable series for fans of the beloved period drama.

For one thing, we know that Helen George's beloved character Trixie Franklin is back in the picture again after leaving partway through season 11 to care for her ailing godmother, and it seems likely that her relationship with Matthew will continue to bloom. Plus, writer Heidi Thomas has already revealed that a number of hot-button topics like the legalization of abortion and the arrival of the contraceptive pill will factor into the next installment's stories (via RadioTimes (opens in new tab)).
