‘Call the Midwife’ recap: What happened in Season 11 Episode 3?

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 third episode, which aired on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 16th January 2022:

It’s June 1967, and the Order of St Raymond Nonnatus are celebrating a very special milestone birthday – it has been 100 years since the Order first arrived in Poplar.

When Sister Julienne is unable to organise the celebrations, Shelagh brings the community together for what will be a joyous occasion.

While tending to a patient who has tuberculosis, Sister Frances and Nancy learn that some residents have become increasingly frustrated by the presence of meths drinkers in the area.

As local councillor, Violet must balance her professional and personal views in how best to tackle the issue.

However, Nancy begins to see past the community’s fear and recognises the plight of these homeless addicts.

Nurse Crane treats a young singer, Julie Haig, who is making a name for herself after meeting her manager, Mo Lewin.

But as Julie can no longer hide her pregnancy, she must decide between two very different futures.

Season 10 is available on DVD on Amazon.
