Movie Reviews

I am a midwife and I LOVED this series!!!
Nancy Wainer | Boston, MA | 09/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a midwife, I have no time to watch television - but I watched this series, every minute of it - and loved it. It was alternately warm, funny, silly, ridiculous, predictable, not predictable, and wonderful! In addition, with the exception of one very short segment, it portrayed the life of a midwife extraordinarily well. The writing was terrific, and the juxtaposition of Mary's work as a midwife, and William's work as an undertaker, especially in episodes 6 and 7(or was it 7 and 8?!)was brilliant. The acting is great and the characters (okay, Mary's mother is a little overdone!) engaging. The development of the relationship between William and Mary is outstanding, and her portrayal of midwifery noteworthy. I made time to see every episode, and it was well worth it each time -relaxing, fun and touching. My partner liked it, too - when it was all over, he asked if now I would sit and watch 12 episodes of something like "The Terminator" with him - of course, the answer was no! - but he actually was the one who would often say to me, "So, do you want to watch the next William and Mary tonight?""
Endearing Characters and Entertaining, Well-written Story
Donegal Dan | Southwest United States | 12/31/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a charming series about the ups and downs of a pair of single parents who meet through a dating service and manage to make things work despite many misunderstandings, aborted plans, eccentric relatives, unusual professions, and teenage problems. However, lest you get the wrong idea, this is not a British version of The Brady Bunch, thank God. It is a well-written, funny, poignant and fast-moving saga of people trying to get together and make a go of their relationship. In the process they have to deal with, among others, a wacked-out and really irritating mother (the bride's), a decent but rather clueless ex-boyfriend, a not-so-decent and intrusive ex-husband (maybe), four teenagers of varying irritation quotients and their own professional problems. My only criticism of the series is that there are a seemingly endless number of childbirth scenes (the heroine being a midwife and all) which get a bit repetitive after a while. Otherwise, a very entertaining and endearing series with excellent performances by all, especially Martin Clunes. Highly recommended."
A Complete Joy

"If you're tired of detectives, lawyers, policemen, and neurotic housewives,
you'll find William & Mary totally refreshing and delightful! We laughed and
we cried, and we absolutely Loved the characters - what more can you ask?"
J. Winters | Columbus, OH USA | 06/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I discovered this series by accident at the library and have loved it! Quirky, fast paced, and fun. This drama has the feel of real life. The love story is brilliant and the teenagers believable (I currently have teenage kids).
The view into their professional lives and how they treat others and how that effects their personalities, stresses and their relationship is also realistic and moving. I am a Family Physician-I have delivered babies and I have worked at a hospice. "William and Mary" does a good job weaving these settings into the story.
Fun to watch, my husband got hooked too. He usually won't watch movies with me, but now he asks that I don't watch an episode without him! Best find in years!"
