Call the Midwife is finally returning to our screens this Sunday (25th February) for the series’ penultimate episode.

After several dramatic mid-series episodes which have left fans with many questions about the fate of fan-favourite families such as the Aylwards and the Turners, has now received access to an exclusive clip which teases trouble ahead for the also beloved Fred and Vi.

But thankfully, Fred and Mayor Violet’s troubles appear to be far more on the farcical side of marital woes when compared to Trixie and Matthew’s current financial issues, as the comic clip below shows.

Yes, the seventh episode will see the shop-keeping couple face the not small but mostly amusing problem of having tons of turnips delivered to their doorstep in the middle of the day!

Episode seven’s full synopsis reveals more about the pair’s predicament, explaining: “Fred plans on using turnips for Halloween lanterns but orders far too many. 

“When they are accidentally unloaded outside Violet’s shop, Violet demands Fred moves them at once. As Fred seeks Cyril’s help, Miss Higgins and Nurse Crane have an idea on how to put the turnips to use.”

The synopsis also hints there will be several more positive developments for the rest of the Nonnatus House family. “It’s October 1969, and Rosalind and Joyce are thrilled to receive their red cardigans,” it reads. 

“Sister Julienne presents Joyce with the Violet Albany Prize, which is given to the east London midwife who qualifies with the highest marks in her exams. Shelagh has arranged for everyone to have their photograph taken for the Gazette outside Nonnatus House.”

There’s even some hope in Matthew and Trixie’s storyline, as the synopsis shares that “as Matthew vows to overcome their financial troubles, he is offered a lifeline from an old colleague.” Meanwhile “Trixie’s lack of sleep prompts her to seek help from Dr Turner,” meaning help is hopefully at hand.

Other storylines in the episode include Nurse Crane and Rosalind helping a 16-year-old girl who Rosalind suspects may be concealing a pregnancy, and Joyce being confronted with an “unexpected visitor from her past” as she cares for a single mother who is expecting her second child.

Call the Midwife returns to BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Sunday, 25th February at 8pm.
