'Downton Abbey' is a bit of a guilty pleasure, but the 'other' popular BBC series, 'Call the Midwife,' has a gritty beauty and spiritual depth that all the riches of Downton couldn't buy.

  • Completely agree with you on your assessment of Downton versus Call the Midwife. Here in the UK we’re sobbing at the end of season 3! But just a point of clarification – Downton is actually aired on ITV, not the Beeb. (But yes, Call the Midwife is a BBC production. ITV is another UK channel.)
