Last Sunday’s (February 13) episode of Call the Midwife ended on a shocking cliffhanger, with Sister Julienne and Dr Turner presumed dead.

The pair were involved in a train crash, and viewers were devastated at the possibility of losing two long-running characters.

However, in yesterday’s episode it was revealed that the duo had survived, but not without consequence.

Dr. Turner walked away from the crash with just a bump on the head, however, there was cause for concern for Sister Julienne.

The nurse suffered a chest injury which mimiced a heart attack, however, she too was alive at the end of the episode.

It didn’t end well for all though. Carole Reece gave birth to a stillborn baby, and Edina was widowed following the death of her husband, the train driver.
