After took away fun in Season 6 — the midwives lost their television privileges amongst other things neverforget — a new television has finally found its way into the house. Love to all my midwifery ladies! Back at the Caravan, Trixie Helen George arrives. She explains to Sister Julienne that she wants to keep every memory and person from those events in the past. She has a home full of foster children and has never raised a hand to any of the thirty kids that she has looked after. Anthea is nice to Sister Julienne when she finds her and her gaggle of biological and foster children. Boys are playing in the vicinity and come across a hand buried in the snow. Valerie is distraught that she got it so wrong and Barbara tries to comfort her as the midwives go to work on the infant.
On a one to ten hankie scale, how much of a tear-jerker do you rate this episode? The cold deepens… Trixie is upset that Christopher caught a glance of her in her curlers in the hallway. They return victorious and the formerly surly crowd cheers as the milk floats head out to make their delivery rounds. While there, Val sees mother-to-be Linda. It was the highlight of this episode. Shocked, she calls for help. Turner soon identifies the deceased man as one of his recent patients, Percy Tillerson. There is also a running through line that milk is not being delivered.
But more on that later. After all, everyone can make time for presents. After it was discovered she was pregnant, her father threw her out of the house. Trixie shows up on the hunch that there must be a problem since Nurse Dyer had been gone so long. Mabel is reunited with her daughter and her family at the show. Really though… our hearts are becoming too fragile for this. We are about to be hit by the 1962 Boxing Day blizzard.
Does anyone know if all of Season 8 will be available on Netflix or will we have to go an episode at a time. Though she admits that Selwyn has promised to love her baby as his own, she voices her concerns about this to Valerie who tries her best to not look uncomfortable, as one does when a stranger shares their life story with you. Valerie trawls through the drifts to the caravan where pregnant Linda is staying with the adoring Selwyn, who knows he is not her baby's father, for a potentially upsetting early birth whilst Sister Julienne hears a shocking story of domestic abuse when she visits the wife of a hypothermia victim. So soak up all those British accents and Sister Monica Joan commentary while you can, because you only get this one episode to hold you over until Season 7, which premieres this spring 2018 — womp. Hereward Jack Ashton comes home after attending to a lonely, dying sailor. It seems that the rift between mother and daughter has a chance of mending after all.
But with the snow and the distance from a phone, Valerie deals with everything herself. The baby is taken to the hospital and then Valerie and Trixie go to tell his parents the good news. Forgot how we got here? Julienne tells her Percy has died. Woolf is present to quell any possible unrest. Turns out Nurse Crane has a cunning plan.
The being the exception here. Tillerson and he died of hypothermia. They kiss under some mistletoe and then walk out of the community center. Her mother put a ten bob note in her pocket before she left but she never spent it. But maybe, I am being overly critical. Turner speculates that the man must have become disoriented in the snowstorm, losing his way home and succumbing to the freezing temperatures.
Sometime between and this episode, Ben Chaplan announced that he would not be back to this season. Later in his office, Dr. Fred Cliff Parisi arrives dressed as Father Christmas only to be thrown a change of wardrobe. Trixie and Barbara are rather close friends at this point. Valerie looks relieved to see her but tells her not to say anything nice to her or she is going to fall apart. Brace yourself, because this roller coaster of intense feels is not over yet. Valerie Experiences Her First Loss During Delivery As Sister Julienne struggles to reunite mother and daughter, Valerie meets with Linda on the other side of Poplar.
Farewell for Now With new beginnings for Linda and Selwyn, and Mabel and Anthea, it only makes sense that this Holiday Special conclude with a new adventure for Barbara and Tom as well. Turner Stephan McGann is struggling to keep everything in order while Shelagh is still on maturity leave. Woolf barges in and orders the boys to evacuate the dangerous structure and instructs Phyllis to knock it down. He has also been asked to go to Birmingham to take over a parish.
