The book is described as “the up-close and personal story of Call the Midwife, as told by the cast and crew who made it into the iconic drama it is today. It’s packed with behind-the-scenes photographs and exclusive interviews with our team, past and present.” 

Chatting about it, Stephen said: “Working on Call The Midwife: A Labour of Love has been like opening a much-loved family album; some of the images have made me smile. Some have made me miss those pictured afresh. But all of them have made me cherish the years we shared, and the stories we made together.”

The book will be released on 11 November 2021 - so plenty of time to read before season 11 comes out!
