Call the midwife: Doctor Turner injured in train accident

Call the Midwife fans were in shock last night after a devastating train crash left the lives of two main characters hanging in the balance.

Sister Julienne and Dr Turner, played by Jenny Agutter and Stephen McGann, were thrown from their seats when their Chelmsford-Liverpool Street train derailed.

The couple were returning from a conference with young nurse Nancy Corrigan when the driver suffered what looked like a brain haemorrhage.

The runaway train passed through several red signals, eventually colliding with another service.

Now the 8 million fans of the hit BBC1 show will have to wait until Sunday’s series finale to find out if either character survives.

The accident caused loud explosions above Nonnatus House



The episode ended ominously with Sister Julienne, the manager of the Nonnatus household, lying motionless among the wreckage of the smoky car.

And young nun Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) looks numb with despair at the thought of losing her, saying, “Nonnatus House will sink and we’ll all drown.”

Meanwhile, Poplar GP Dr Turner was also left unconscious with one of his legs horribly mutilated.

Nancy, played by Megan Cusack, was in a different car and walked away with minor injuries.

Agutter and McGann, who is married to the show’s creator and head writer Heidi Thomas, have been on the show since it launched in 2012.

Thomas often ends odd series with a death – and that’s the climax of Round 11.

The runaway train went through several red signals and eventually collided with another train



At the end of last night’s shocking episode, Vanessa Redgrave’s voiceover said ominously: ‘Sometimes the sky tears apart and the earth shatters beneath our feet.

“We are, if we can do it, exposed, vulnerable, pathetic in our fragility.

“Bruised and bloodied, we are made simply human, never more fragile, never more at risk, never more needing all the strength we can find.”
