Call The Midwife concluded with a bang as the final episode explored the aftermath of the tragic train derailment. Fans of the BBC One show couldn’t get enough during the final outing of season 11, and without having a moment to pause after the final scenes, the show quickly took to social media to confirm that it would be back with a Christmas special.
The penultimate episode had left spectators guessing who had or hadn’t survived the horrific crash and were at the edge of the seats for the last chapter.
One tragic casualty came in the form of Dorothy Carnie (played by Stephanie Jacob), who had been serving tea on the train. After suffering severe burns, she died in the care of Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) and Dr Turner (Stephen McGann).
Viewers were also shocked to discover that Lionel Corbett (Marc Elliott) died of a brain tumour while his wife gave birth to their child in the season finale.
Without giving onlookers the chance to process what had happened, the show tweeted to say that they would “be back”.
