The new season of Call the Midwife continues this week, as the regime of Sister Ursula goes on; the confiscating of candy from an elderly nun being just one example of her new, lean approach. The troops, however, are getting a bit mutinous. We’ve always known that the Nonnatus family is completely dedicated to their patients and their community. But when their new leader decrees that they concentrate on the nursing aspect and basically abandon their other support functions, the ladies are just not having it. Also this week we meet two couples who face uncertain times and call on the midwives to help them navigate the challenges.
