COLIN VICKERY OUT OF THE BOX
CALL THE MIDWIFE, ABC1, 8.30pm
THE first series about young nurse Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine) rated strongly and fans have been eagerly awaiting more. Tonight there is just enough time for Jenny to celebrate her birthday before work takes over. Dr Turner (Stephen McGann) is spreading the wonders of nitrous oxide for pain relief during childbirth. Not all are convinced. Jenny investigates Molly, a mum-to-be who has been missing her appointments. Molly’s bruising suggests an abusive marriage. Call the Midwife is quality viewing. Jenny Agutter as Sister Julienne and voiceover from Vanessa Redgrave as the mature Jenny are icing on the cake.
