‘Call the Midwife’ recap: What happened in Season 10 Episode 2?

The tenth season of Call the Midwife continued 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 second episode, which aired on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 25th April 2021:

It’s April 1966 and the trial of the Moors Murders sends a chill through Poplar, marking a loss of innocence.

Having developed a close bond with a patient during her delivery, Trixie (Helen George) is troubled when her new friend is suddenly admitted to the Lady Emily, following a collapse at home.

Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) feels she needs to become worldlier if she is to truly understand her patients, in particular a mother who had an affair and now plans on giving her baby up for adoption.

Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) is consumed by her private thoughts but finds distraction in assisting Sister Frances.

Cyril (Zephryn Taitte) helps a family find shelter after being evicted from their home, which prompts Fred (Cliff Parisi) to donate food supplies from Buckle’s paper shop, much to Violet’s (Annabelle Apsion) annoyance.

Season 9 is available on DVD on Amazon.
