Call the Midwife, Series 2 Episode 7 of 8

Cynthia's district nursing rounds find her administering daily insulin injections to diabetic John Lacey, a deplorable bully who consistently belittles his wife Annie. A visit from Annie's beloved son Bob, and moral support from Cynthia, see Annie gaining confidence and start to turn her life around.

Jenny's work leads her to witness persecution of a different variety when she looks after a black mother-to-be, Monique, who is subjected to racial prejudice from her neighbours.

Funded by the success of the Summer Fete, Nonnatus House takes ownership of a scooter to help with their rounds. Fred teaches the midwives how to ride, with amusing and unforeseen consequences.

The whole community is thrilled when Chummy and Peter return home from Sierra Leone with a surprise of their own.
