What else is happening in the Call The Midwife Christmas special?

Other pictures – shared in the Radio Times – showed Trixie (Helen George) standing in front some sparkly Christmas lights.

Hopefully we’ll find out what happened to her and Matthew, and whether a romance blossomed.

We also see an image of Mother Mildred (Miriam Margolyes) who was absent in series 10 but looks to be making a return for the special.

At the end of that series Lucille and Cyril announced they were planning a Christmas wedding.

With another image of Fred smiling in a Christmas market, let’s hope it’s joy and peace to all men and women in Poplar this Yuletide.
