Call the Midwife: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Call the Midwife was shot digitally. It seems to be the practice with any British TV effort that's been digitally originated to master it for Blu-ray at 1080i. Both the BBC and Acorn Media do this, and it's the case here. Since I try not to look at the technical details until after I've watched the discs, I was not aware of the format while viewing. It was only while freezing the frames for screencaps that the interlaced format became noticeable. What was most striking about Call the Midwife as a viewing experience was how beautifully film-like the image was and how artfully the cinematographer, Chris Seager (currently working on Game of Thrones), suggested a faded, older era without leeching all the color from the image. (According to IMDb, Seager used the Arriflex D-21, which is Arri's digital camera designed for motion picture photography. It accepts 35mm lenses.)

Despite the interlaced format, the image on BBC's AVC-encoded discs is detailed and free of artifacts (again, while the image is in motion), with a distinctively pale but varied color scheme, and occasionally vivid colors that stand out in certain scenes when emphasis is needed. Blacks are deep and solid, contrast is just right for bringing out detail without distorting it, and compression errors are nowhere to be seen. If not for the absence of any visible grain structure, this could be an expertly transferred image from film. (Note, however, that the interlacing is visible in freeze frames and screen captures.)


Call the Midwife: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The series' stereo soundtrack is delivered as PCM 2.0, and it's basic and effective. Dialogue is clear, unless you have trouble with the various accents, in which case there are optional subtitles. The charmingly upbeat score by Peter Salem, who has extensive credits in British TV, sets the right tone for a series that is all about remaining cheerful in the face of overwhelming odds.
