Next week, Call the Midwife season 8 episode 7 is arriving on BBC One, and we do think that there is a pretty high degree of importance here. This is the penultimate episode of the season and whatever happens is going to bleed over directly into the finale. This is an episode that will be about change, facing fears, and also evolution. Take, for example, with Sister Frances — one of the things we’ve had a good opportunity to learn this season is just how shy she is. She’s not someone who is used to being in the spotlight and throughout this season, she’s having to learn how to put herself out there. That can be a huge challenge, but we do think that she’s got some pretty wonderful people in her corner who are doing just about everything that they can in order to help.
Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Call the Midwife season 8 episode 7 synopsis with some other news when it comes to what’s ahead:
Mother Mildred (Miriam Margolyes) decides it’s time for Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) to attend her first solo birth, which causes the younger Sister to panic. She must dig deep to conquer her nerves.
Trixie (Helen George) cares for a heavily pregnant patient whose routine tests reveal an unfortunate truth. The patient has gonorrhea, a sexually transmitted infection which could cause serious health concerns to her unborn child.
The Turners (Stephen McGann and Laura Main) hold a meeting in their home in a bid to bring one of the new Brook Advisory Centres to Poplar. Violet (Annabelle Apsion) is not convinced that these controversial services are the best use of council money but Dr. Turner and Trixie hope to change her mind.
Seeing Trixie and Dr. Turner work together in order to help Poplar should prove interesting, especially when it comes to the two of them making a compelling argument to Violet. This is an example of a great story that this series wouldn’t have been able to tell a few seasons ago, mostly because of seeing the evolution of Violet as a character. While she may not be a huge player in the national government of Britain, she doesn’t need to be. Sometimes, being involved in local government is equally important since you actually have a chance to impact communities on the ground level. Let’s hope she embraces that however long it lasts.
