CALL THE MIDWIFE | Behind the Scenes – Could You Really Deliver a Baby? | PBS


(upbeat music) – We often have people describing how Call the Midwife is an intergenerational viewing
experience in their home and I think that’s lovely. I just think having it out
there has been liberating. – And we’re off. – Ha! – Describing my character
in three words, oh gosh. Fun, sensitive, opinionated. – Fred’s pretty jovial,
content and mischievous. – Three words that would
describe Sister Julienne. I know she’s tolerant, and attentive, always listening very carefully to people, and full of enjoyment
for extraordinary things. – What three words sum up my character. Enthusiastic, floored and good. – Could I deliver a baby? Absolutely, 100% not. I could not. No way. And it would be criminal
if I believed I could. – If I had to deliver a baby for real, I think I would cope badly. I have not learned a single, single thing since I began Call the Midwife. Our wonderful Midwife
Advisor, Terri Coates, she said, “How have you not
learned anything, anything?” And I say, “Well, I’ve always
had you there to do it.” – No, I couldn’t deliver a baby. Oh, I think, well this is the thing, if you were on a bus and somebody was having a baby, you’d go through the motions I suppose. (puffing) – That’s it. That’s it. – You’d just sort of say
some of your dialogue, and hopefully it would be
the right thing to say. – (Narration) Call the
Midwife, returning next spring. Only on PBS.
