While we know that the Winter Olympics are going to be dominating much of the conversation in one week’s time, but rest assured that there is still Call the Midwife season 7 episode 4 coming on the air. Not only that, but if you are a fan of the Sister Julienne character this is going to be must-see TV for you. This character is at the center of most of the action that takes place over the course of the hour, especially in terms of seeing her try to help a family that is very different from herself. It’s going to be very difficult for her for a wide array of different reasons, with the biggest one being simply trying to find a way to understand this culture — she is great at helping in order to ensure that some of her patients find peace, but some situations are obviously more difficult than others. This is going to be one of the extremely-trying ones.
Below, the Call the Midwife season 7 episode 4 synopsis offers up some good insight into what you can anticipate seeing:
Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) is drawn into the heart of a different culture when she is called upon to help a Pakistani family.
Having come to terms with her own childlessness, Mumtaz Gani (Balvinder Sopal) is heartbroken when her husband, Saddiq (Simon Rivers), brings home a second wife who is eight months pregnant.
Sister Julienne must help Mumtaz to terms with this new addition to her family. Elsewhere, Trixie (Helen George) struggles to cope after her break up with Christopher (Jack Hawkins) and looks for comfort at the bottom of a bottle. But it’s not long before she can no longer conceal her struggle with sobriety.
Sister Julienne and Dr Turner (Stephen McGann) are convinced Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) needs cataract surgery, but before having the first consultation, she must first acknowledge that her vision is impaired. And at Clinic, Lucille (Leonie Elliott) meets a woman with no ordinary craving – Mrs Campbell (Rose Wardlaw) can’t stop eating coal.
For anyone out there who has seen the series My Strange Addiction, the latter part of this synopsis sounds almost like an episode of that show. Ironically, there is also this really weird trend going on right now where everyone is also super-obsessed with charcoal and is putting it on just about everything. Who would’ve thought that would carry over somewhat to this show? In this case, though, it’s serious and there is probably a medical reason why this is happening. Time is of the essence for the midwives and nurses at Nonnatus House to figure out how to help. Also, Julienne is going to have to figure out how to help Mumtaz, and there is a serious concern for Trixie’s future given her history with addiction that we’ve become aware of over time.
