Call The Midwife Holiday Special Spoilers

BBC One has outlined a detailed official synopsis for the Holiday Special that reads as follows: “This year’s Christmas Special is set in December 1965. Everyone at Nonnatus House is looking forward to traditional celebrations with all the trimmings, but nothing goes quite to plan. Sister Monica Joan is rushed to the hospital, and Trixie is incensed to receive a subscription to a Marriage Bureau as a Christmas gift. Meanwhile, a surprise reunion for Shelagh involves her in a deeply moving birth, and the Circus arrives in Poplar, bringing new friendships, new experiences, and an exciting adventure for Nurse Crane.”

Filmed under the strangest circumstances, the episode also marks the return of an earlier character, Gloria Venables.
