    This immensely absorbing drama is worth any trouble it takes to catch up with its singular pleasures.

    The first episode offers a somewhat overwhelming dose of midwifery, to the point that some viewers may wonder how Call the Midwife won't grow tiresome with repetitive birthing stories. The addition of Chummy to the cast in episode two and a broader role for the midwives--in episode three Jenny simply spends time with an elderly man--allows the series to avoid growing stale.

    The advice here is to forget the politics and enjoy the performances and the trip back in time.
