What is it about Call The bloody Midwife that has me in tears every week?

It's not particularly heart wrenching or terribly tragic, yes it's quite sad and difficult sometimes, but my god. I can't sit through an episode without welling up.

Is it me or does it have this effect on anyone else?grin

Is it just the way it's filmed? All nostalgic and nice music?

Even worse here; took DS to see Book Thief this afternoon and emerged from cinema red eyed and sniffing; just recovered when Midwife came on.......!

vanessa redgrave's voice is enough to set me off

Miranda Hart's shite acting makes me weep.

Oooh, harsh. grin

the character Chummy is annoying
I do love trixie though

Oh I love Chummy so much grin and would love a night out with Trixie.

I find Sr Bernadette a bit wishy washy now.

I gave up on it (I really disliked the books too), but adopted it again as an 'ironing' programme.

I think it's emotionally manipulative grin You can see it coming, but sometimes it's so bloody harrowing it can be upsetting.

This week's episode was the first one where I didn't cry. Usually I'm sobbing out loud by the voice-over.

Who is the plank of wood nun who went on to marry the Doctor? She ruins it for me week after week with her breathy voice! Absolutely love Call the midwife, but she is no good as a non-nun!
