Call the Midwife season 7 episode 7 preview: Is Barbara in danger?

Call the Midwife season 7 episode 7

Call the Midwife season 7 episode 7 will be airing on BBC One in just one week’s time and at the center of this installment is a health crisis. What sort of crisis are we talking about here? Let’s just say that it involves Barbara and could lead to all sorts of despair. Her health is not in a good place and as a result of that, she’s going to be struggling being apart from many of her friends.

Below, the Call the Midwife season 7 episode 7 synopsis offers up some more insight into what’s next for both this character and others on the series:

Dr Turner gets involved with a troubled young man and Lucille makes new friends. Meanwhile, Barbara lies ill in hospital.

Barbara’s (Charlotte Ritchie) condition hasn’t improved and she’s being kept in isolation. Tom (Jack Ashton), Nurse Crane (Judy Parfitt) and the others can do little more than wait for news.

Elsewhere, Dr Turner (Stephen McGann) and Shelagh (Laura Main) become involved with Michael (Aaron Thomas Ward), a young man in a Remand Home whose wife is pregnant.

Call the Midwife season 7 episode 7 holds a significance that is greater than this synopsis gives away on its own — after all, we are talking here about the penultimate episode of the entire season! This is a chance to really see the story come together and build towards a conclusion more than any before it. Luckily, show writer Heidi Thomas knows in advance that this is not the final season of the show (there are at least two more after this), so what that means effectively is that she doesn’t have to plot anything out here as though we’re, thankfully, facing the end of the road.

As for some of the other stories within this episode, it seems as though Lucille is going to do her part to expand her social circle outside of Nonnatus — which is great news since she does need to have both a work life and home life. Meanwhile, it’s nice to see Dr. Turner and Shelagh continue to do everything that they can to help others … though there is a pretty good chance that their attempts to reach out to Michael don’t quite go as planned.
