Storyline

Returning from South Africa the midwives find the grim Sister Ursula has taken over as superior from Sister Julienne and is intent on imposing a frugal regime and an unwelcome new system. The nurses are also concerned for put-upon mother-to-be Trudy Watts, whose ex-con husband Lester is bullying her and their five-year old son Mickey. Having escaped from him to give birth at the convent Trudy decides to stand up for herself but needs Phyllis's help to triumph. Getting caught up in the domestic violence does not help Sister Mary Cynthia's fragile mental health but Shelagh has good news for her husband. Written by don @ minifie-1

I used to love this series
29 December 2017 | by sdwarren-73304See all my reviews

The Season 6 Christmas Special was wonderful. To then be presented with a character so rigid and unfeeling as Sister Ursula I just don't understand. I have watched all the other episodes several times, but I can't even seem to watch five minutes of the series now with this disturbing presence. Whose brilliant idea was it to add a character that disillusions the viewers and makes them stop watching?
