Call the Midwife Wiki

The elderly nun O.S.R.N is a nun at the Mother House who appeared in the 2018 Christmas Special. She was portrayed by Margaret Jackman.


Whilst Sister Mildred is encouraging Shelagh Turner not to leave the room after bringing in mince pies, the elderly nun reminds her that tea is usually a silent meal, but Sister Mildred tells her it is not a usual day, since the Chinese orphans are getting adopted.

Later whilst Sister Julienne and Sister Winifred are clashing over Sister Winifred’s future, on whether she should go back to Poplar or remain at the Mother House, Sister Mildred then tells the table of nuns that the quarrel is within them all, silencing the entire table, the elderly nun breaks the silence by saying yet again that tea is supposed to be silent meal in a much sterner tone.
