The ninth season of Call the Midwife continued in the UK tonight.
The BBC’s hit period drama series about a group of nurse midwives working in the East End of London is back with eight brand new episodes.
Here’s a plot recap for Season 9’s seventh episode, which aired at 8pm on Sunday 16th February 2020 on BBC One:
Dr Kevin McNulty (Lee Armstrong) performs an excellent forceps delivery – his final supervision under Dr Turner (Stephen McGann).
Miss Higgins (Georgie Glen) congratulates Kevin on how well he is doing, but at the same time she still has her beady eye on him.
Eight and a half months pregnant Yvonne (Sophie Melville) is Kevin’s next patient and sadly has troubles at home – her husband is a drunk and is abusive.
Dr Turner feels Yvonne is a patient that Kevin could give full emotional as well as medical support to.
Ahead of clinic, the team finally receive the long-awaited incubator for the maternity home with ribbon cutting and speeches to thank all those who donated.
Among the many mothers at clinic is new patient Marion (Ellie Wallwork) and her husband Stewart (Dylan Llewellyn).
Marion has a rare form of retinitis pigmentosa that has left her blind.
Trixie (Helen George) is on hand to assist Marion and is keen to support her as much as she can, though Marion insists on doing things herself.
Meanwhile, since SGT Woolf (Trevor Cooper) left, Nurse Crane (Linda Bassett) has started to struggle with the cubs. Cyril (Zephryn Taitte) suggests that he and Lucille (Leonie Elliott) should help Nurse Crane.
Season 8 is available on DVD on Amazon.
