September, 1940. As London is decimated, over seven consecutive nights of Nazi aerial bombing-raids, MARTHA MULBERRY, 14, is evacuated following the destruction her home, in East London. Her family, with the exception of her GRAMPA MONTGOMERY, have all been killed in the blast. Numb from her loss, she boards a train with thousands of others, each with their own tragic story, heading for the rural expanses of the British Midlands. Collected from the local station of Pipplington by the jovial MRS. HATTIE HONEYRUMP, alongside her newly found travelling companion LUCINDA “CINDERS” TATTERSHAWL, 12, Martha is taken to the peculiar and secluded hamlet of Shrubbleford-on-the-Warren, meeting TOSSTLE TROTT, 15, along the way. Still grieving for the loss of her family and home, Martha begins to notice the peculiar habits and routines of the villagers, not to mention the eccentric animals and beguiling garden gnomes! With many of the country’s men enlisted in the armed services, her new home is a predominantly female community, each with their own key attributes and roles in holding the community together. Through curiosity, a welcome distraction from her recent loss, Martha and Cinders, explore their new world, and begin to piece together, what they believe to be, a sinister coven of ancient witches. Martha plots her escape, but soon discovers, The BLUEBIRDS are not your average witches! PITCH: Call the Midwife meets Wind in the Willows via The Worst Witch.
