Call the MIDWIFE
Sunday, 8pm, BBC1
There’s a heartbreaking story about a botched backstreet abortion when Call the Midwife returns this week. Val and inexperienced new nun Sister Frances (newcomer Ella Bruccoleri) are called to help a girl give birth to her baby in agonising circumstances, but with abortion still illegal, can they help her avoid arrest? Miriam Margolyes is back too as the popular Mother Mildred.
