Call The Midwife – Best BBC One Drama In Over 10 Years!

General News

Did you catch the last episode of BBC One's Call The Midwife last night?

It's more than likely you did as the period maternity drama bowed out with a series high!

The series finale, which featured the wedding of Camilla 'Chummy' Fortescue-Cholmeley-Browne, played by Miranda Hart, and PC Noakes drew 9.2 million viewers, a 32.1% share, between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

Across it's 6 part run the series averaged a whopping 8.68m (29.55%), thrashing all competition in its slot.

The show, made by Neal Street Productions, has already been recommissioned and is now officially the most successful new BBC One drama in more than 10 years.

So what is it with period drama that we just can't get enough of?

As our TV sets become more and more futuristic - with 3D technology, integrated Wifi, and a wealth of Smart TV options - we seem obsessed with watching tales of the past.

Do you think it's a fad, or is the trend here to stay?
