The Daily Star had a small feature about Jessica’s new role in her new BBC Drama The Last Post

Call The Midwife star Jessica Raine is swapping babies and bibles for sex and swearing in a new autumn BBC drama.

The actress will be known to millions as former TV midwife Jenny Lee but is taking a starring role in The Last Post.

She plays Alison Laithwaite – the frisky, boozing, swearing wife of a lieutenant on a Royal Military Police base in Aden, Yemen, in 1965 who has a fling with the unit’s captain.

Writer Peter Moffat said of Jessica opting for the role: “I think this was new for her.

“She was delighted to play someone dissolute and difficult rather than fresh and fragrant.”
