Call The Midwife (Series 13, Episode 3)

Call The Midwife Season 13 Episode 3

Call The Midwife returned this Sunday night with its third episode of the latest season.

Reggie returned home for a few weeks’ holiday and assisted Fred in making over the small unkempt green space outside St Oswald’s church. This was paid work for both of them, marking the first time Reggie had earned his own money. Violet and Fred decided it was time to pay Reggie for his work in Buckle’s paper shop.

Meanwhile, Violet, considering running for mayor, was somewhat preoccupied with her application and failed to notice that Fred wasn’t his usual cheery self. Events took a dramatic turn, and it seemed like Violet’s mayoral campaign would have to be abandoned.

Gillian Baxter, a model and a star in Poplar, was born into an East End family. Having been signed up to a baby modelling agency, her face had graced the sides of London buses advertising baby soap. Since becoming pregnant, Gillian was signed up to model again, with plans in place for her newborn to follow in her footsteps.

Rosalind and Sister Julienne oversaw Gillian’s delivery at the maternity home. However, when her newborn baby was diagnosed with a birth defect, Gillian struggled to cope with the news. Nurse Crane helped Gillian and her husband, Liam, through this difficult time.

In the meantime, Trixie started making plans for a move into the Barbican flat and attempted to enlist Matthew’s help in selecting a new sofa.

Call The Midwife airs on BBC One on Sunday, 21 January 2024 at 8:00PM.

The episode is the third from the show’s thirteenth series.
