Call the Midwife star details horrific scene that made me cry

Judi Parfitt tells Alan Titchmarsh her Call The Midwife role is but ‘enormous fun’

Speaking recently to the cast of Call the Midwife opened up on the moments that made them emotional with Fred Buckle star Cliff Parisi explaining one particular scene sticks in his mind which made him “cry” at the time.

“The most horrific episode for me, actually made me cry it was a small boy and he had scabies and malnutrition and he was neglected, clearly,” he remarked.

The actor added: “His mother was on the game and she had this little baby and he used to look after the baby when the mum went out to work and he got locked out and he had to pour the milk through the letterbox for the child.

“And that really upset me. There have been some fantastic stories.”

Sister Julienne star Jenny Agutter also detailed a harrowing moment that made her emotional.

Recalling the episode, she remarked: “The young girl who was giving birth to a baby in one of these buildings.”

Speaking from The Historic Dockyard Chatham, where many scenes are filmed, the actress continued: “We did that scene here, we were rushing up, and also the birth scene which was really quite dramatic.

“It was fast and there were serious complications, the baby’s intestines were on the outside of its body.

“And that for me, was really kind of a tough one to do.”

The latest series of the popular BBC drama also saw some tear-jerking moments as Trixie Franklin (played by Helen George) finally tied the knot with Matthew Aylward (Olly Rix).

The staple character has had a hard time in recent years and has had her own demons to battle, so fans were delighted to witness the happy moment for her.

Series favourite Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) is also suffering with dementia in the series, and further health conditions could see further heartache in her future.

The eccentric nun’s future on the show is uncertain as she was struck down with a case of hepatitis.
