She has worked with the renowned Kenneth Branagh on various Shakespeare plays such as Hamlet and As You Like It.

Who plays Derek Fleming?

Rising British actor Jack Colgrave Hirst plays Derek in Call The Midwife.

Jack, another RADA graduate, actually appeared alongside Kathryn – his onscreen wife in CTM – in Kenneth Branagh’s film, All Is True.

He has also worked alongside Sir Kenneth in more productions of Shakespeare plays.

But fans may recognise Jack from the recent BBC Two series, The Terror.

The creepy period drama told the story of two doomed 19th-century ships that became stranded in frozen, uncharted Canada.

Alongside the likes of Jared Harris and Ciaran Hinds, Jack played crew member Thomas Hartnell.

He’s also appeared in the second series of ITV’s Liar.
