We've not even seen the fifth series yet, but Call the Midwife has had a sixth series announced.

BBC director-general Tony Hall confirmed the new run today (December 10) during a screening of the upcoming fifth run premiere.

Ahead of that, this year's Christmas special airs on Christmas Day at 7.30pm on BBC One, and is followed by eight new hour-long episodes for series five in 2016.​

Series five will take place in 1961 and will start to tackle the thalidomide scandal, where thousands of babies around the world were born with deformities due to the over-the-counter drug, which was prescribed to pregnant mothers to treat morning sickness.

​Call the Midwife launched in 2012 and has had one series a year since, each followed by a Christmas special. Last year's special was one of the highest-watched shows during the festive period.
