The past couple of seasons have not been incredibly kind or easy to some of the stars of “Call the Midwife” on the BBC. Last season marked the sad passing of one Sister Evangelina after a series of struggles, and this time around, we do appear to be seeing much of the same thing for Sister Mary Cynthia. She’s struggling, and it will be up to everyone else at Nonnatus House in order to ensure her safety, and that she can everyone around her can figure out the best way for her to press onward.
As the BBC reveals below, Mary Cynthia’s struggle will continue to be a key component in the story to come, though her care is not going to come at a time in which there are no other events taking place. This is a series, after all, where the midwives don’t get to take a break from anything that is happening in the world.
Synopsis – “Valerie Dyer cares for a pregnant Somali woman and is shocked by aspects of this unfamiliar culture. The nuns and midwives try to provide the best care for Sister Mary Cynthia.”
Tonight’s episode is serving as a hopefully-worthy introduction to the Valerie Dyer character, so whatever you end up seeing here is hopefully going to pick up and continue to be important as we press onward through the remainder of this season. While we don’t know precisely how many more episodes she’s going to be in, as of right now we’re treating her as though she’s a permanent new part of the series, much in the way that we did for Charlotte Ritchie when she first jumped on board. Continuing to bring in new cast members is most likely one of the ways in which the series is being able to replicate the real experience through history. Nobody necessarily held onto the job forever; it’s just like anything else within the workforce.
