Earlier this year, Thomas talked with the press about the plot of Call The Midwife Season 11.

So I’m looking forward to the part of the 1960s where women really begin to have some fun. Then we are working to break out of the doll’s house, and our bodies won’t have been an irrational object that has to be controlled and dominated but something that can be admired and celebrated.”
