Call the Midwife 6 - Episode 1

Image result for call the midwife season 6


The midwives return to Nonnatus House from their philanthropic trip to South Africa, though there’s a conspicuous absence – Trixie, who’s stayed behind “on loan” for two months. That’s not the only change in personnel, there’s a new top nun, the terrifying Sister Ursula (brilliant Harriet Walter), a tough cookie who believes in “frugal luncheons” and that “biscuits are for fainters only”.

She can’t really be as horrible as she seems, even when she puts extreme pressure on fragile Sister Mary Cynthia. Or maybe she is. Unthinkably, Sister Ursula is the new Superior, displacing lovely Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) who has to do the menial stuff with the rest of the nuns. She says she doesn’t mind, but you can see her heart is breaking.

Still, there’s not too much time to dwell as Heidi Thomas’s hugely popular, soul-warming series returns – a brute is terrorising his pregnant wife and little boy.

SUMMARY

New series. The nuns and midwives return home after their trip to South Africa, to find Nonnatus House has come under new management. The formidable Sister Ursula (Harriet Walter) has taken charge and introduced some drastic changes to the way the clinic is run, which Sister Julienne, bound by her vow of obedience, is powerless to oppose. The midwives come to the aid of a victim of domestic violence whose husband is about to be released from prison, and who risks losing everything if she seeks a divorce. Sister Mary Cynthia suffers further anxiety attacks, and Patsy receives distressing news about her father.
