Episode Synopsis: Call The Midwife Season 2 Episode 5 (PBS) – The whole Poplar community pulls together to prepare for the annual Summer Fete. This year, with the introduction of a baby show, the midwives will be more involved than ever, especially Trixie, who assumes responsibility for securing a celebrity judge. At the ante-natal clinic, Jenny meets Nora, an impoverished mother of eight, who is distraught that she may soon have another mouth to feed. Jenny’s attempts to reassure her fall on deaf ears, and a desperate Nora takes matters into her own hands.
Show Summary: CALL THE MIDWIFE, written by Heidi Thomas and based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, returns for a second series. Extended to eight episodes, BBC One’s most successful new drama since ratings began sees the return of all its well-loved characters as well as some new faces. Nonnatus House opens its doors to warmly welcome the audience back into 1950s East End London and continues to follow Poplar’s community of exceptional midwives and nursing nuns. The new series stays true to its roots — viewers can expect to see more births, babies and bicycling, plus blossoming romance from an unexpected quarter.
