Season 3

Premiered: March 30 - May 18, 2014

The third season takes viewers to 1959, the eve of the Swinging Sixties. The winds of change are sweeping through the country and the residents of Nonnatus House face some momentous changes of their own. 

This series sees Chummy, PC Noakes and baby Freddy back in the East End, Sister Bernadette, now known as Shelagh since leaving the convent, preparing for her wedding to Dr. Turner and Jenny facing huge challenges both personally and professionally.

At Christmas, when an unexploded World War II bomb is found under a warehouse close to Nonnatus House, the nuns and dozens of local families find themselves homeless. Dr Turner is in a race against time to immunise children against polio, but when the illness strikes closer to home, he finds there’s nothing he can do but hope. When a Royal visitor comes to the East End, Chummy persuades them to open the new Community Centre. It's a race against time as Chummy tries to get everything in place for the big day.
