Patrick looking at Shelagh behind the door….
(every cut reveals things that I have instinctively felt that should have been there for the narrative…I have to calm down or I write smcganns a cross tweet like “We NEEd at least the scriptbook! Can’t you edit it, just to…ermmm…make a few bucks for the family)

yet again a cinematographic detail, one of features I reveled in CtM Series2 and even blamed Thea Sharrock for the lack of them in CSp2013. One look from Timothy after his dad’s “I wouldn’t have anyone else..:” (a 3second cut…)

Whaaaaat? I need this in video form!!! We definitely get the most cut version in America so PBS can fit in all their “behind the scenes” clips and…

It is not PBS. IT IS THE BBC. (and the Executive Producers,…ermmm….). I understand that Heidi and Pippa Harris must cater to all audiences and keep storylines evenly distributed. But this was a major fail. (There are different opinions, even here in the Fab Turnadette Mothership). 

This is like extraordinary, to show CUT SCENES in the “colonies”, Cuts are familiar, extra scenes WHICH ARE NOT ON DVD EITHER are unheard-of. (correct me if I am wrong)

Dunno. They should have cut from the bomb detonation, IMHO. 

(….now I can confess it, like I haven’t been whining for months:-), but I always felt that “I ordered your bouquet” somewhat….truncated. Abrupt.)

We do have PBS issues here in the US. We seem to top out at 45-50 minutes, which means we lose content from the show only to get a quick 5-minute behind-the-scenes and/or fundraising pitch.

My understanding is that Neal Street ultimately mixes/cuts all the show content for the various countries to fit the time requirements, but I could be wrong about that.

What fascinates me about the NZ cut is that the pacing is completely different because so many “mood” bits are included — lots more of the carol singing, dialogue snippets, etc. The NZ cut feels more complete.

I’m personally hopeful that the NZ cut continues to surprise us. I’m looking forward to seeing what might turn up for Turnadette as we go.

And just a mild beef: The DVD first two-series collection I have, which is the UK cut, came with a CD of the popular music (presumably whatever is licensed here in the US) that has absolutely NO definition of the song titles and artists. It was like they handed that “feature” off to the intern to compile and never did any quality control…

This. Pacing, pacing, pacing….show, don’t tell.

Two minor reasons to love ‘Call The Midwife’:

  • child gets a stepmother, at no point does anyone regard her as anything but his mother. the child has at no point so far shown signs of thinking of her as anything but his mother.
  • Fred the handyman is not a lech or disrespectful. You’d think he…

Sister Bernadette/Shelagh Turner is perfect and your argument is unwarranted.
