Call the Midwife returned this evening with a corker of an episode.
The hit BBC1 period drama didn’t waste any time throwing us back into the turmoils and tragedies of the East End, with a sad storyline about child neglect, which had a gutting, heart-wrenching conclusion.
New face Barbara Gilbert (Charlotte Ritchie) also arrived at Nonnatus, with a first day that didn’t quite go to plan. We had late-night drinking, first-day worries and even dogs running around with bras in their mouths. And there was happy news as Trixie and her handsome curate Tom got engaged. (Eee!)
We have to admit we are already rather smitten with series four, but what did you think?
Are you pleased to have the nuns and nurses of Nonnatus back on your Sunday-night telly screen? Did you manage to get through the episode without reaching for the tissues?
Or are you less-than-impressed with the return of the period drama? Perhaps you’re missing Jenny Lee and sweet Cynthia Miller?
