For those of you who loved the first series, you’ll be delighted that there’s a second series of the BBC's Call The Midwife. If you’re Victoria Pendleton, you’ll be even happier.
Why’s that then? Well, the first series was credited with making a runaway success of the range of bikes that she designed with Halfords.
We wrote about it here - viewers couldn’t get enough of the stylish ladies hopping on and off their step-through, basket on the front steeds, and went out and bought one of Pendleton’s pretty bikes.
The range can be seen here - they’re simple, beginner-friendly machines at beginner-friendly prices and they do look very nice for noodling around town.
Meanwhile, if you are the owner of a period bike, there’s the chance to be a paid extra in the next series of Call The Midwife.
If you own a bike that would have been in use around 1957, and you’d like to be one of 30 dock workers cycling home from work (men only, unfortunately), and you’d like £75 for a day’s work in Chatham, Kent, email assistant director Mark Turner at markturner20 [at] hotmail.com
