Adapted by Heidi Thomas from the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this drama series is a moving, funny, colorful look at midwifery and family in 1950s East End London. It follows newly qualified midwife Jenny, who joins an eccentric, lovable community of nuns who are nurses at Nonnatus House. Following an eventful holiday special, the series picks up in the spring of 1967, where celebrations are underway for a colorful Easter bonnet parade outside Nonnatus House. Sister Monica Joan and Reggie are excited about the Eurovision song contest, while Cyril and Lucille settle into blissful married life. Nancy, having just passed her midwifery examinations, is about to don her red cardigan for the first time, and Sister Frances examines a newly married woman who presents some troubling symptoms. Derek and Audrey Fleming return to Poplar with good news. Builders demolishing a nearby tenement block make a shocking discovery that has a heartbreaking effect on the team Jenny is surprised to find herself at a convent -- she thought she was being sent to a small private hospital -- and is initially daunted by her surroundings, most notably the formidable Sister Evangelina and the unconventional Sister Monica Joan. But Jenny gradually begins to find her way and develops incredible friendships among the nurses, as they are drawn into the lives and homes of the women and families they treat.

Doc Martin

Acorn TV • 2004 • IMDb: 8.3
Doc Martin

The trials and tribulations of Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes), a socially challenged doctor who moves from London to the picturesque village of Port Wenn in Cornwall. Nine series aired between 2004 and 2019, with a television film airing on Christmas Day in 2006. The ninth and most recent series aired on ITV from September 2019 and streamed in the United States and Canada on Acorn TV. Fans are curious to know if there will be another season of the drama. Currently, the future of Doc Martin remains unknown. A 10th season has not been ruled out by Martin Clunes, who plays the role of Doctor Martin Ellingham in the series. Doc Martin Season 10 release date is not announced but likely to be in September. Given that Doc Martin has always been an ITV show, however, we don't see any reason why it wouldn't continue to be an ITV series – so in the UK, you'd expect to see it on ITV. In the US, Acorn TV has always been the exclusive premiere location for the series. While we certainly don't know the details of their contracts with ITV, we've seen nothing to suggest that Acorn TV wouldn't be the premiere outlet for Season 10 of Doc Martin. In an interview at the Cornwall Film Festival, the director, Nigel Cole has confirmed without a doubt, that there will be a tenth series. He said: “There will be a series ten. We’re working on it. It’s official, we are doing it.” Recently most of the cast got back together for a special project to thank the NHS for all they are doing for us during the COVID-19 pandemic. Actors Martin Clunes, Caroline Catz, Ian McNeice, Joe Absolom, and John Marquez – all reprised their famous roles for a seven-minute special which has been shared on Youtube. In the season finale, which aired in 2019, Doc Martin faced a final assessment by the General Medical Council. Tom Conti drove to the village to audit Martin to see if his skills in surgery were adequate. As a result, Doc Martin resigned before he could be struck off as he failed. He also found out he was about to have another child! With the final episode leaving on a cliff hanger, people were shocked to hear there was a possibility that it could be the last episode. The series by ITV was set originally for nine series, but Martin Clunes said in the past “That doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be any more”.

Anna Nagler, Director, Local Language Originals, CEE and Russia: "Nothing Special is a beautiful story, so simple and yet so complex. It is told with incredible sensitivity and with an even greater sense of humor.

We were charmed from the very start and trust the story will equally appeal to our Russian members". Ilya Malanin, director: "I am very pleased that it is this story that established my directorial debut. It is full of emotion, acceptance, and love. Each character is knitted with contradictions both in thoughts and actions. And there is nothing special about it" . Valeriy Fedorovich and Evgeniy Nikishov, producers: "We are glad that once again Netflix enables us to share a Russian story with the whole world. Together with highly professional actors such as Yura Borisov and Daria Melnikova, newer talents - some of whom have disabilities - made this project really special. Their talent and charisma help us share a heartwarming, sympathetic story. It leaves nobody indifferent".

The Great

Hulu • 2020 • IMDb: 8.1
the great-nstv

A genre-bending, anti-historical ride through 18th-century Russia following the wildly comedic rise of Catherine the Nothing to Catherine the Great. A royal woman living in rural Russia during the 18th century is forced to choose between her own personal happiness and the future of Russia, when she marries an Emperor. The Great is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest-reigning female ruler in Russia's history. The series is fictionalized and portrays Catherine in her youth and marriage with Emperor Peter III (amalgamated with Peter II) focusing on the plot to kill her depraved and dangerous husband. In season two of "The Great," Catherine finally takes the Russian throne for her own - but if she thought coup-ing her husband was difficult, it's nothing compared to the realities of liberating a country that doesn't want to be. She'll battle her court, her team, even her own mother (played by guest star Gillian Anderson) in a bid to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. Meanwhile, she'll also battle her heart as Peter slowly transitions from a much-hated husband to a prisoner? Ally? Lover? Ultimately, Catherine will learn that to change a country, you must let it change you, that there is a fine line between idealism and delusion, and that becoming "Great" will ask more of her than she could have imagined. The series stars Elle Fanning as Catherine, Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Bayo Gbadamosi and Belinda Bromilow. "The Great" is created, written and executive produced by Tony McNamara and executive produced by Marian Macgowan, Mark Winemaker, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, Echo Lake's Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding, Thruline's Josh Kesselman and Ron West, and Matt Shakman. The project is produced by Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television.
