Call the Midwife

Call the Midwife returns with an emotional episode on PBS on Sunday April 21, focusing on the challenges faced by the pupil midwives and the residents of Poplar.

As summer draws to a close, the pupil midwives, including Joyce and Rosalind, prepare for their final exams. Joyce, a methodical planner, remains calm under pressure, while Rosalind’s anxiety increases as the exams draw near.

Meanwhile, two little brothers are found abandoned at a local church, triggering a nationwide search for their mother. Cyril, in his new role as child welfare officer, faces his toughest challenge yet. The boys are discovered by Sister Veronica and Shelagh, who care for them while the police are notified. Dr Turner examines the boys, finding them to be well-fed despite having nits and scabies. They are then taken to a temporary foster mother while efforts are made to locate their mother.

He is removed from the board and his salary is stopped. This revelation has a significant impact on his relationship with Trixie, who is excited about collecting her new car. Matthew is forced to confess his financial woes and the fact that they won’t be moving into their new apartment.
