Opening with the funeral of Winston Churchill in January 1965, season nine continues with Nonnatus House entering a bold and innovative era. As the tower blocks multiply, and a new East End rises from the ashes of the old, society becomes more prosperous, but more complex.
Our familiar team of medics and midwives face unexpected challenges as the population shifts, rules change, and old diseases come back to haunt them. Meanwhile, their own experiences are fuelled by love, loss, and doubt - and the very fabric of their lives is jeopardised when Nonnatus itself comes under threat of demolition.
Includes the 90 minute Christmas special:
As Christmas approaches, a bout of influenza sweeps through both Nonnatus House and the Turner family. When Mother Mildred declares that God is calling her to set up a branch house in the Outer Hebrides, it seems an ideal opportunity for the nuns and midwives to convalesce in the bracing Scottish air. As they recover, they will also be able to help the island, where there is a nursing and doctor shortage. Sister Monica Joan associates the Outer Hebrides with St Eustace's White Stag, a symbol of Christ, and is thrilled at the idea of travelling there. However, she soon discovers to her annoyance that she is being left behind with Sister Hilda and Sister Frances. Within a week, Dr Turner, Shelagh, Mother Mildred, Trixie, Sister Julienne, Valerie and Lucille set off on their journey to the Outer Hebrides, where they are to stay in a freezing cold converted church. As the team set about establishing an antenatal clinic and treating the local population, they must battle not only the weather and bleak terrain but also the suspicions of some of the islanders.
