The show’s sixth season picks up following the Christmas Special with the midwives receiving a rapturous welcome when they return from their South African adventure – but all is not well at Nonnatus House. In their absence, Sister Ursula has been running a very tight ship and it is quickly announced that she will remain in charge at Nonnatus House, above Sister Julienne. Sister Ursula makes unpopular changes, but bound by a vow of obedience Sister Julienne is unable to challenge her.
