PBS’s “Call the Midwife

Series Premiere: Sunday, September 30 at 8 p.m. EST Call the Midwife Falls Most Fashionable New TV Shows

What the show is about: Based on the bestselling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, this historical drama tells stories of midwifery and families in London’s East End in the 1950s through the eyes of Jenny Lee, a young woman raised in the wealthy English countryside who gave it up to work as a midwife in the poorest area of London.

Why it made our list: We love a good period drama, especially when they fully indulge in the fashion of the time. With Peter Pan collars, trench coats and penny loafers, “Call the Midwife”’s costumes will satisfy our jones for vintage fashion until “Downton Abbey” makes its long-awaited return in January.
