Sister Bernadette leaves hospital, having renounced her vows and ready to start life with Dr Turner. Jimmy returns to work in Poplar, happy with fatherhood, and introduces Jenny to his friend Alec, with whom she goes on a date. Another visitor is Fred's pregnant daughter Dolly, with her little son, but when she needs a brief hospital stay, Fred is literally left holding the baby. Fortunately, Chummy is a huge help but she has her own doubts about what sort of mother she will be and news that the convent will be bulldozed with other buildings to make way for development unsettles all the nurses. Both women give birth successfully - though for one it is touch and go. Written by don @ minifie-1
