Call The Midwife

Have been watching the TV series 'Call The Midwife'. It's supposed to be in Poplar as I understand it. But is Poplar today anything like in the series? Is it worth a visit? Or any other place that would give the feel of 'Call The Midwife'?

The area of Poplar where this was supposed to be set was pulled down in the 60's and 70's to be replaced by what is now Canary Wharf and Docklands. Just north of Canary Wharf is Poplar High Street which has remained largely unchanged except for some new apartment blocks.

I've never watched this series, but I noticed an article in the paper today which says that St Joseph's Missionary College, setting of Nonnatus House is to be redeveloped as luxury housing, so a new location will have to be found

Somebody I know who grew up in Silvertown says that this show is very reminiscent of his childhood. I'm not sure what Silvertown looked like back then, and I have never seen Call the Midwife, but I have been to Silvertown quite recently and I can confirm that it does feel rather like stepping back half a century or more. It certainly has undergone much less transformation than any other part of London that I have been to.
