‘Call the Midwife’ recap: What happened in Season 11 Episode 2?

The eleventh season of Call the Midwife continued in the UK tonight!

Following the recent festive special on Christmas Day, we’re heading back to Poplar this winter for eight brand new episodes.

The BBC’s 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.

Last year the show celebrated its tenth anniversary and a beautiful new book compiled by Dr Turner actor Stephen McGann, titled A Labour of Love: Ten Years of Call the Midwife, is out in February.

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 9th January 2022:

Trixie and Sister Frances put their training into action as they join Dr Turner at the monthly cytology clinic, which is attracting a high number of patients for a routine cervical smear test.

While there, Sister Frances examines a newly married woman who presents some troubling symptoms.

Lucille helps Vivien, a single mother of three, through her fourth pregnancy and intervenes when local authorities question Vivien’s capabilities as a mother.

After suffering a traumatic experience, Miss Higgins is offered a place to stay at Nonnatus House.

Sister Hilda and Shelagh take the lead in the fight against a scabies epidemic that has quickly engulfed Poplar.

Season 10 is available on DVD on Amazon.
