Based on the memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, this quiet cousin to the other PBS British dramas (“Downton Abbey,” “Sherlock”), follows a group of London midwives. The series has its own special charms (and rabid fan base), but its heart and soul can be found in the character of Chummy (comedian Miranda Hart).
