Call the Midwife star relishes a special delivery for Christmas

21 December 2013 4:08 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Helen George's character Trixie Franklin will be at the centre of a dramatic storyline about her difficult childhood

Not every young actress dreams of being a Christmas fixture like the fairy on the tree, but Helen George, who plays fun-loving Trixie Franklin in Call the Midwife, can relish her status this year as her character will be sounding some of the darker notes in a dramatic storyline. Woven into a Christmas special will be a poignant revelation about the shadows that shaped her difficult childhood.

The hugely successful BBC drama is to entertain families across the country on Christmas Day for the second year running and Trixie is at the heart of the action around Nonnatus House, the midwives' home in Poplar, east London.

Among all the carols and babies are some powerful moments, both explosive and romantic, although there is no jolly Christmas lunch shared between the nurses and nuns. »
