According to the official press release, this one will take place in 1965 and finds Nonnatus House staff "looking forward to traditional celebrations with all the trimmings, but nothing goes quite to plan. Sister Monica Joan is rushed to hospital and Trixie is incensed to receive a subscription to a Marriage Bureau as a Christmas gift.
"Meanwhile, a surprise reunion for Shelagh involves her in a deeply moving birth, and the Circus arrives in Poplar, bringing new friendships, new experiences, and an exciting adventure for Nurse Crane."
With cameras now rolling during such unprecedented times, creator Heidi Thomas had this to say: "Everyone is overjoyed to be whisking the dust sheets off Nonnatus House and getting back to filming after lockdown.
"It is a particular thrill to be able to deliver the Christmas Special on time, just as we promised at the start of the pandemic.
"We are very much a family at Call the Midwife, and like families everywhere, we have missed each other. We will now be putting more love and energy into our work than ever and can't wait to share series 10 with our fantastic, loyal audience."
Executive producer Dame Pippa Harris went on to share her hopes of bringing "joy and respite into people's lives" when the Christmas Special airs.
"In such difficult times, the values of Call the Midwife seem more resonant than ever. In series 10 we will continue to celebrate the skill and bravery of the UK's NHS whilst bringing laughter and love into our homes," she added.
