‘Call the Midwife’ finale recap: What happened in Season 10 Episode 7?

The tenth season of Call the Midwife concluded in the UK tonight!

Following last year’s filming delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, seven brand new episodes are finally here.

The hit period drama series about a group of nurse midwives in the East End of London first aired in 2012, based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth.

The new season of Call the Midwife will premiere in the US later this year on PBS.

Here’s a plot recap for the seventh episode, which aired on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 30th May 2021:

Nonnatus House struggles to come to terms with Nancy’s (Megan Cusack) revelation.

With Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) taking her annual leave at the Mother House, Sister Hilda (Fenella Woolgar) relishes the chance to cover and impress with her leadership.

While attending an expectant mother, Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) and Trixie (Helen George) are appalled to learn that Poplar’s housing crisis is worsening, leaving the Nonnatus team vowing to fight for change.

It’s a poignant time for the Turner family as Timothy (Max Macmillan) readies to leave for medical school in Edinburgh and Cyril (Zephryn Taitte) receives news from home, prompting him and Lucille (Leonie Elliott) to consider their own future.

Meanwhile a very special baby is born, who causes a rift in a close-knit family and leads many people to count their blessings.

Season 9 is available on DVD on Amazon.
