‘Call the Midwife’ holiday special comes to Arizona PBS

Followers of the “Call the Midwife” series are sure to love the holiday special coming Dec. 25 at 8 p.m. to Arizona PBS.

The Christmas special stars Miriam Margoyles as Sister Mildred, who arrives unexpectedly at Nonnatus House, her hands full with four Chinese orphans. Having fled China, the child refugees were found abandoned in Hong Kong and are being adopted in the U.K. as part of the World Refugee Project.

With Christmas preparations in full flow and the midwives busy caring for the expectant mothers of Poplar, these unexpected visitors cause joy and chaos in equal measure. This special also sees Trixie return to Poplar in time to cover for the Sisters as they leave for the Mother House. The Order’s Mother Superior has taken ill, and a new spiritual leader needs to be elected.

Much to Sister Julienne’s horror, it quickly becomes clear that she is the favored candidate.
