‘Call the Midwife’ recap: What happened in Season 11 Episode 5?

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

Following the recent festive special, 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 fifth episode, which aired on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 30th January 2022:

It’s September 1967. Trixie has been assigned to a complicated case involving a crane driver who was injured in a workplace accident and is now paraplegic.

He has been discharged from hospital, and is living back at home with his wife and children.

Meanwhile, Nancy and Sister Frances give a talk on the facts of life at a primary school, and Lucille’s attendance at a straightforward delivery takes a distressing turn.

Shelagh decides to organise a jumble sale to raise money to fix some broken playground equipment in the park.

When Sister Julienne finds a suspicious item, chaos ensues.

Season 10 is available on DVD on Amazon.
