Season 5, Episode 3:
Series directorial debut by Sheree Folkson.
Speaking as a Chinese man, it was nice to see a Chinese man here with a white wife.
Fascinating case about typhoid.
Distressing for Patsy that the typhoid case brought back very unpleasant memories for her.
Harrowing about the case of the pregnant teacher who got pregnant from a married man, a man married to someone else.

Season 5, Episode 4:
A young man who is about to go to university finds out that his girlfriend is pregnant with his baby.
As this is set in 1961, the young man was inevitably engaged to his girlfriend. However the engagement was called off as she had a miscarriage and he free to go to university.
Certainly different today when no such expectation of marriage is an obligation but it is telling of a man's priorities about impending fatherhood.
Did not take too well on the nurse that Sister Julienne met at the hospital.
Shelagh express her amazement that World War II is now taught as history at school.
Today with the great passage of time, it is easy to take for granted that World War is indeed history to us but in 1961 it was still a relatively recent memory in a lot of people's minds especially those who fought in it.

Season 5, Episode 5:
Impressive of Delia getting a mother to give birth to her baby over the telephone.
Shocking history that was discovered about this mother.
This episode sure did pretty well in showing on how deadly lung cancer is especially when Dr Turner saw that darkened lung.
What a funny disaster when Fred runs the shop whilst Violet was incapacitated.

Season 5, Episode 6:
A harrowing reminder that back in those days when an unmarried young woman falls pregnant her mother pretends to be pregnant and pretends that she is the one to give birth to the baby.
The locum doctor was very dolty and definitely did not like him.
After only one night at camp, Dr Turner takes the family to a hotel. Amusing that he states there is nature in the hotel as well with the flowers on the table and the feathers of the pillows.
Tragic about Sister Mary Cynthia getting attack and definitely feel for her here.

Season 5, Episode 7:
Penultimate episode.
Daisy was sure intolerant in the modern methods of delivering babies.
This episode sure imagined well to when the contraceptive pill first became available.

Season 5, Episode 8:
Season 5 finale.
Harrowing case about thalidomide and for Dr Turner to inform mothers about it.
Sad with the death of Sister Evangelina and a lovely tribute to her.

Found out from DWM #498 the passing of Rita Davies.


Born on February 24 1933, Davies appeared in Call The Midwife 4.6 playing Pegeen.

She performed for two Whoniverse Big Finish audios in Doctor Who: Primeval playing Janneus & then in I, Davros: Innocence playing Tashek.

Her other on-screen work included the Doomwatch movie playing Mrs Murray.

Her other work included Monty Python's Flying Circus, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Da Vinci Code, Ashes to Ashes, Sherlock, Come Fly With Me & House of Anubis.

She died on January 19 2016 just over a month before her 83rd birthday.

Meanwhile Miranda Hart will be returning as Chummy in the 2016 Christmas Special and season 6 next year.

2016 Christmas Special:
Guest stars Sinead Cusack.
Most of the Nonnatus staff goes to South Africa to help out with the missionary there.
Very sincere performance by Sinead Cusack as Dr Myra Fitzsimmons and quite a depiction of the apartheid South Africa.
Overall a pretty good setting of South Africa for this Christmas Special.

Meanwhile ahead of the start of season 6 in 2017, Call The Midwife has already been renewed for a seventh, eighth and ninth season plus three more Christmas specials.

Season 6, Episode 1:
Season 6 opener.
Enthralling beginning to the sixth season with a pregnant woman with a young son and an abusive husband who has been released from prison.
Quite challenges that this woman had to face to get custody of her children.
The said young boy gets called a pirate because of a patch on one of the lens on his glasses.
Shelagh sure gave a surprise to Dr Turner here.
Incidentally NuWho’s own sixth season has a pirate episode with The Curse of the Black Spot but the Call The Midwife and Doctor Who episodes missed each in having the exact same season episode number placing with the Call The Midwife episode being 6.1 and The Curse of the Black Spot is NuWho’s 6.3
