Call the Midwife was a television show that, according to the Twelfth Doctor, was "about babies and bicycles". (PROSE: The Blood Cell)

Graham O'Brien claimed he watched every single episode of the show. However he had to look away at the parts he deemed squeamish. (TV: The Tsuranga Conundrum)

Behind the scenes Edit

The cast appeared of this show in a comedy sketch for 2013's Comic Relief which combined elements of the series with that of the Channel 4 documentary series One Born Every Minute. It also featured Matt Smith in an appearance as the Eleventh Doctor. The cast also appeared in It's Showtime a few months before. Jenny Agutter later played her character in Looking for Pudsey.

A number of cast members have also appeared in Doctor Who productions individually, most notably Jessica Raine who portrayed Emma Grayling in the Series 7 episode Hide (also directed by Call the Midwife director Jamie Payne). Fenella Woolgar appeared as Agatha Christie in the Series 4 episode The Unicorn and the Wasp. Jenny Agutter and Pam Ferris have also voiced characters for Doctor Who audio dramas, with Agutter also providing vocal work for the Minister of Chance audio drama series (an arm's length spin-off of NOTVALID: Death Comes to Time that falls outside the purview of this wiki).

Similarly there are also a number of other actors who have guest starred in both series, as well as crew members who have worked on both.

The series, set in the 1960s, featured a direct reference to Doctor Who in episode 3 of the eighth series, where the nurses sit down to watch an episode of The Aztecs, with a character explaining that "the Doctor's assistant has been mistaken for an Aztec god".
