Call the Midwife’s social media team posted more information in the caption of the post that explained, “Behind the scenes on the new Call the Midwife Christmas Special: The Turners take to the road!”.

“Yesterday it was off to the Royal Dockyard in Chatham, Kent, to film some driving sequences for our new Christmas Special”.

“This involved a lot of technical fiddling and special effects, but luckily the rain held off! Max Macmillan and Stephen McGann, who play Timothy and Patrick Turner, were confined to the small driver's cabin in their many layers of winter clothing, which – combined with members of the crew squeezed into the back passenger seats – became rather steamy and airless!”.

They continued, “Also, it was impossible for the other crew to get into the car to present the clapperboard to the camera at the beginning of takes, so the job fell to Max – a job he took very seriously, judging from the picture”.

“Filming is off to a WONDERFUL start, and it was great to be back at the dockyard, where the official Call the Midwife tour takes place”.

They added, “Call the Midwife returns with a new Christmas Special and Series 13 in 2024 xx”.

“Can't wait…so excited”, wrote a second fan, while a third agreed, “Love love love can’t wait”.

Filming for Series 13 of Call the Midwife began at the beginning of May and will also be released next year.
