Season 6, Episode 2:
Sister Ursula imposed strict rules on what the sisters can and cannot in the amount of care they can give marking a very tense situation which ultimately results in Patsy leaving to be with her sick father in Hong Kong.
Even though the explosion was included in the Next Time trailer at the end of the previous episode, it still came as a shock when it came here.
Anguishing seeing the man who got blinded by the explosion and the impact it had on his wife just as she had given birth to their new baby.

Season 6, Episode 3:
Very interesting case of the newly born baby from a Chinese father and a white mother and how she succumbed to carbon monoxide.
Luckily she was gotten to Dr Turner in time.
The case with this baby sure proved doubtful the effectiveness of the 20-minute edict that was imposed.
There were worries that the inspection at Dr Turner’s clinic might lead to certain closures but ultimately got a temporary reprieve thanks to Dr Turner coming into good light due to the way he treated that baby promptly.
Finally nice to see Trixie back as she was last seen in South Africa in the most recent Christmas Special.

The Casebook:
Shown between the 2016 Christmas Special and season 6, The Casebook is a documentary that looks at real-life stories that inspired the episodes of Call The Midwife including of course the memoirs by Jennifer Worth that the series is based on.
Presented by Stephen McGann (Dr Turner) and includes telling the viewer about how he came into the world of his family.
Stephen does not mention his name but it showed pictures of Stephen with his family including with his brothers when they were boys
Of course one of his brothers is Eighth Doctor Paul.
Fascinating documentary looking at the real life stories of midwives especially in the early days of the NHS and sadly as narrator Stephen McGann points out the Call The Midwife TV series made its debut not long after the death of Jennifer Worth, the woman who made the TV series possible with her memoirs.
Also I am glad to know more of Stephen McGann as a person.

Season 6, Episode 4:
Quite moving about the expectant mother who decides to give her baby to her childless cousin.

There was sure a moving father-son time between old man Turner and son.

A new midwife is coming Valerie Dyer who previously appeared two episodes ago and look forward how she goes as a midwife.

Season 6, Episode 5:
A very moving episode when Fred’s cousin ivy dies and leaves behind her young adult son Reggie who has Down’s syndrome.
Quite sensitive on how this episode on what is to be done about Reggie before the ultimate solution came at the end.
Quite a shock on seeing Sister Mary Cynthia’s current location and what she was doing there.
The dental storyline was also well handled.

Season 6, Episode 6:
Antepenultimate episode of season 6.
Very good the backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis and how everyone is concerned by it.
US President John Kennedy is seen in news broadcast as his presence reflects the seriousness of the said crisis.
I wonder if his assassination will be covered in the next season.
Somewhat satisfying resolution with Sister Mary Cynthia with her moving out of that mental institution and eventually into a more gentler place.
Not bad the case of the woman from Somaliland.

Season 6, Episode 7:
Penultimate episode of season 6.
Harrowing situation with Rhoda and Bernie Mullucks as they struggled to agree what is best for their young daughter who got affected by thalidomide.
Also tragic when Phyllis accidentally knocked over a child when driving.
Tragic news about Patsy’s father although perhaps not unexpected.

Season 6, Episode 8:
Season 6 finale.
Lovely end to the sixth season.
Certainly agonising for Shelagh as she gave birth to a baby boy

Call The Midwife got referenced in the penultimate episode of Walliams & Friend season 1, Miranda Richardson.
The reference got made when David Walliams made a joke about cuts at the BBC and that Call The Midwife was going to be called Call The Midwife But You Should Call Someone Else.
