Mourn the Midwife #1LinerWeds

I finished bingeing Call the Midwife on Netflix. I’m happy to say it didn’t end like Hamlet, with some bit character having to give the epilogue because the major and secondary characters were dead. –Oops! Spoiler alert!

Anyway, so many actors and acrtesses left the show over the years of its run and so many of their characters were retired by decease (not to mention the babies, mothers, and various one-ep fatalities), I said:

If they kill any more of the characters, this’ll be a zombie show.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Has a show you liked ever morphed into a show you didn’t like? Mind you, I didn’t stop liking Call the Midwife, this is just a prompt FOR YOU.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    LOL! That’s always in my recommendations, but I always cry at “baby born” scenes so I’ve skipped it. Maybe I should reconsider.

      Oh, Joey, if you cry at “baby born” scenes, you should definitely skip it. There’s at least one baby born every episode, and sometimes the baby doesn’t make it. Something heart wrenching in every episode. Something funny, and something uplifting. And there’s Sister Monica Joan, the oldest possible nun, who is as likely to quote Keats as Jesus.
