Call the Midwife
21:00 - 22:00
Sister Julienne decides it is time to take matters in hand when a letter arrives from the council saying that they will cut funding to Nonnatus House and no longer pay for their accommodation. After an unsuccessful meeting with the council, Sister Julienne broaches the subject with the rest of the team and a forthright Nurse Crane goes with Sister Julienne to try and tackle the issue with Violet at one of her open sessions as a local councillor. Violet seems more on the side of the council than the Nonnatus House team at this point, but later comes up with a window of opportunity to give them one chance to put their case in person to the council. Galvanised by this, but with only a few days to prepare, they plan to engage the community with a petition and prepare a speech to change the council's mind. At clinic, Nurse Crane meets and cares for heavily pregnant, bohemian Bonnie, not married but committed to the baby's father, Eddie. Nurse Crane suggests that with Bonnie's headache, it may be wise to come into the maternity home until baby arrives. Meanwhile, Petra and her mother Ada make hasty plans with Violet for Petra's wedding to come forward now that Petra is unexpectedly in the family way. When Bonnie and Petra are both admitted to the maternity home, tensions flare as the women discover they have more in common than they thought. Elsewhere, Kevin's dependency on pain relief is discovered by the team. Dr Turner and Miss Higgins must find a way to help him recover but perhaps the pressures of being a Doctor are too much for Kevin who must decide what to do for his future.
