Call The Midwife

Jenny is placed on the district nursing roster for a few weeks to extend her experience of community practice.

She attends to Joe, a gentle old soldier with appalling leg ulcers. Jenny grows very fond of Joe and when his condition deteriorates, Jenny realises how much their friendship has enriched her life.

At the antenatal clinic Trixie and Cynthia enrol Winnie Lawson as a new patient. In her forties Winnie had thought her days of nappies and babies were long gone, and seems upset by her pregnancy. By contrast her husband Ted is overjoyed by the news. However at the baby’s birth everyone gets a bit of a surprise.

Jenny is played by Jessica Raine; Sister Julienne by Jenny Agutter; Sister Evangelina by Pam Ferris; Sister Monica Joan by Judy Parfitt; Chummy by Miranda Hart; Sister Bernadette by Laura Main; Trixie by Helen George and Cynthia by Bryony Hannah.
