'The Great British Baking Show' Season 4 Episode 3: Bread Week

In this installment of our Great British Baking Show recaps, we follow our ten bold bakers as they attempt to “prove” their mastery of the bread making arts.

Bread week means Paul Hollywood is in the driver's seat, an intimidating dilemma to be sure. From chocolate bread and savoury plaited centerpieces to a mysterious German bun that no one ever heard of, our group knead their hearts out in pursuit of the Star Baker title!

If I were to use one word to describe this week’s season finale of Call the Midwife it would be “emotional." Whether brought on by hormones or resulting from events both tragic and joyous, if you didn’t cry during this episode you may not be human. It was jam packed with sentiment and served as a lovely gift for those fans who endured the dark days of Sister Ursula earlier in the series.

At one time or another most parents have experienced the pain of seeing their kids bullied or excluded, but the families featured in this week’s episode of Call the Midwife have got long-term struggles on their hands. In a related story, one of our most committed midwives undergoes a serious crisis of confidence. And Trixie learns that caution can be mistaken for dishonesty.

As always, if you want to peruse last week’s events before moving on, you can find that recap here.

One thing leads to another on this week's Call the MidwifeTreating a maternity patient with serious dental issues results in romance for Nurse Franklin. The Buckles take in a young man with special needs who has nowhere to go and, in the process, we also discover that what the Mother House calls a “place of greater safety”, is nothing of the sort for Sister Mary Cynthia.

Despite the backdrop of a close-knit community celebrating the opening of a new park with maypole dances and chariot races, tragedy or near-tragedy dominates in this week’s Call the Midwife. Mothers who can’t bear children are juxtaposed against those who can but can’t afford to keep them.
