Call the Midwife Wiki

S04E02 is the second episode of the fourth series and the 27th episode overall of Call the Midwife. It originally aired on 25 January 2015 in the UK.


Another new nurse, Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett), joins the staff at Nonnatus House and infuriates the staff, especially Sister Evangelina, with her officious manner. Sister Julienne is delighted when a rich benefactor resolves to leave a legacy to the convent, but finds herself tormented when it is revealed that it is a man, Charles Newgarden (Nicholas Farrell), with whom she shared a romantic relationship 30 years earlier. Barbara and Patsy are both devastated when they deliver a stillborn child to a young Trinidadian mother, but everyone is delighted when her labour continues and a healthy twin is born. Trixie's obsession with organising an extravagant engagement party threatens to drive a wedge between her and Tom.

Sister Evangelina: Fibroids! Nothing more. Inconvenient, but not in any way a threat to life or limb.

- Sister Evangelina telling Sister Julienne the reason for her illness.

Phyllis: I hope this is a safe place to park. I don't want any footballs through my windscreen. Phyllis Crane, SRN, SCM, I am expected.

Barbara: Oh, of course. Hello.

Phyllis: Hmm. When I was in training, we were always taught to say "Good morning", "Good afternoon", or "Good evening". "Hello" would not have been permitted. Unless you were talking to Americans, perhaps.

- Phyllis Crane arrives at Nonnatus House for the first time.
