Call the Midwife Wiki

S08E02 is the second episode of the eighth series and the 63rd episode overall of Call the Midwife. It originally aired on 20 January 2019 in the UK.


As Violet runs for election as a councillor, Lucille befriends an elderly woman facing eviction, and Sister Hilda supports a Ghanaian family suffering from a mysterious illness.


Lucille becomes involved in the case of Clarice Millgrove, a proud former suffragette now living in an unsanitary house full of hoarded possessions. Fiercely independent, she refuses to move to a care home, even when ordered by the courts. A Ghanaian mother finds that she is suffering from sickle cell disease. Confident that her children will be safe from the condition, as it can only inherited if both parents have the disease, she is horrified to learn that her husband has been concealing his own symptoms. Violet stands for election to the borough council but is disappointed by Fred's lack of support.
