Christmas Special 2012

Period drama. As Poplar prepares for Christmas, an abandoned baby is discovered. While efforts are made to trace the mother, Jenny is caught up in a mystery.

Christmas is coming, and in Poplar the midwives of Nonnatus House are busier than ever. When an abandoned baby is discovered on the steps of the convent, the whole community rallies round to provide food and clothing, and to try and trace his mother.

Nurse Jenny Lee, meanwhile, gets caught up in the heartbreaking mystery that surrounds an elderly, semi-vagrant local woman, Mrs Jenkins.

For newly married Chummy, other challenges await, as she pulls out all the stops to mount a truly memorable children's nativity play.
