Call The Midwife Is Back - S5 Ep1
Tonight I watched S5 episode 1, here's a shot synopsis: It is now 1961. When a baby is born with severe deformities of the kind later identified as caused by the drug thalidomide, the midwives find it difficult to handle the situation, and the baby's father rejects her completely, to his wife's dismay. Trixie's new sideline as a keep fit instructor brings her into conflict with Sister Julienne, and she also becomes suspicious of the relationship between Barbara and Tom. Rather than return to Wales as her mother wishes, Delia is invited to move into Nonnatus House.
Tonight's episodes was no different. I love that they are tying back in to a storyline that was in last season. We are now seeing the deformation of children (due to a new drug that was introduced last year) of course our characters don't know that.. yet. The conflict between Trixie and Sister Julienne was rough. I get Trixie's point but still the way she talked to and treated Sister Julienne was uncalled for. I'm really liking the budding relationship of Tom and Barbara but I know it won't last as Barbara is to nice of a girl to hurt her friend Trixie... but will have to wait and see. I like that Delia has moved into the house to be closer to Patsy. After last years tragic accident when we thought these two would never be together.. they have finally turned things around. I just hope it lasts.
Can't wait to see what's in story for Nonnatus House this season.
