Dainty new midwife Jenny (Jessica Raine) is getting the rough edges knocked off her in the tough old East End of this wildly popular soap, though she gets squeamish visiting a rotting old man. (Jenny’s getting in a bit of practice as a district nurse.) The old fella (indestructible Roy Hudd) is a dear with a fund of war stories, but he’s lonely and his flat is infested with cockroaches.
As for the pregnant ladies of Poplar, they’re still queuing up for antenatal attention, though heads turn when a middle-aged couple arrives at the clinic. The expectant dad is dead keen, but mum is weary and scared – with good reason, as it turns out.
Jenny is placed on the district nursing roster to improve her experience of community practice, and grows close to an ailing veteran soldier (guest star Roy Hudd). Trixie and Cynthia welcome a new patient to the antenatal clinic, a fortysomething woman who is upset by her pregnancy, despite her husband's joy. But at the birth, everyone gets a surprise. Drama, with Jessica Raine, Laura Main, Bryony Hannah and Miranda Hart.
