Season 4, Episode 1:
Season 4 opener.
Debut of Charlotte Ritchie as nurse Barbara Gilbert and what a delightful addition she is.
Although Jessica Raine has already left the series, Vanessa Redgrave still narrates as mature Jenny. I mean if this is being told from Jenny’s perspective shouldn’t it be from where she went to after leaving Nonnatus House. I mean she can hardly have a perspective on events that she wasn’t a witness to.
What a horrible state that the children was found in and quite sadly to learn from mature Jenny that they didn’t have a happy ending when they left the UK to go to Australia but as she says it was hope that made them happy for a while.
I can’t imagine my own personal life experiences as bad as what those children went through but I do know about hope keeping me happy even if it did not deliver me a desired outcome in my life.

Charlotte Ritchie was interviewed in the Sydney Sunday Telegraph tv guide for its The Last Word feature.
She says in preparing for the series she watched a birth for research and that “watching some random woman having a baby…was the strangest Sunday night”.

She also says how she was quickly welcomed by her castmates Helen George (Trixie) and Emerald Fennell (Patsy) especially since Jessica Raine had been such an integral part of the series.

Season 4, Episode 2:
Another new nurse Phyllis Crane comes to Nonnatus House and she is not exactly chummy to look at.
Sister Julienne has a reunion with someone from her past and it is revealed that she did not meet up with him at a certain meeting when she got her calling to be a nun. This meeting got rectified here.
I am understand the feeling that Sister Julienne was going through here as I had missed out on having coffee with an old schoolfriend something that I will always regret. I am still hoping to have that coffee one day.
Sad about the stillborn baby.

Season 4, Episode 5:
Harrowing seeing Dr Turner, when he made a mistake with a diagnosis of a baby, beating himself over it.
Nice to see Cynthia now Sister Mary Cynthia returning to Nonnatus House.

Season 4, Episode 6:

Antepenultimate episode of season 4.

Guest stars Maria Doyle Kennedy as an expectant mother who ultimately gives birth to a baby. Coincidentally a few days before seeing this episode saw her in new movie Jupiter Ascending in which she also gives birth to a baby, in that case the movie title character, in that movie.

I have seen Maria Doyle Kennedy in another BBC series Orphan Black but the one BBC series I like to see her in one day is Doctor Who.

Did not like the other storyline about the pregnant diabetic young woman.

Season 4, Episode 7:

Penultimate episode of season 4.

Guest starred Lisa Greenwood, David Ryall and Una Stubbs.

Ryall actually died on Christmas 2014 just over two months before this episode aired on March 1 2015 and this episode is dedicated to his memory.

Two pregnant old schoolfriends (one of which played by Lisa Greenwood) are reunited just as they are about to give birth to their babies but these old schoolfriends have drifted apart and it is very sad when that happens.

The situation was made worse when their babies were accidentally switched. Thankfully this was detected quite early when the babies were still newly born instead of many years later in which emotional issues would complicate matters.

Unfortunately baby switches can still occur in today’s world and I can only hope that such switches are forever prevented in future but I can’t say with any confidence that such a prevention is a 100% guarantee.

Season 4, Episode 8:

Season 4 finale.

Absolutely sad the tragedy that struck Delia which damaged her brain making her difficult to remember Patsy.

Absolutely impressive with what Trixie said at the support group in a line that was superbly delivered by Helen George as Trixie.

2015 Christmas Special:
A quarantine sure put a spanner for a planned BBC broadcast but thankfully things got resolved on this.
Iris sure carried a surprise with her one that she didn't even know about until now.
Quite harrowing when Sister Monica Joan wander off and ended up at her old home. Quite the sentimentality that was played with her being at said home.

Meanwhile Call The Midwife has been commissioned for a 2016 Christmas Special and a sixth season in 2017.

Season 5, Episode 1:
Season 5 opener.
Not bad plotline about Trixie as a keep fit instructor.
Harrowing the plot about the deformed baby that took the father some time to finally accept.

Season 5, Episode 2:
Interesting plotline when baby formula was still a new idea.
Sad about the case that Barbara is on with a woman giving birth to her baby just shortly before the death of the baby's father.
