KQED 9: Sun, Apr 28, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

The whole Poplar community pulls together to prepare for the annual Summer Fete. This year, with the introduction of a baby show, the midwives will be more involved than ever, especially Trixie, who assumes responsibility for securing a celebrity judge. At the ante-natal clinic, Jenny meets Nora, an impoverished mother of eight, who is distraught that she may soon have another mouth to feed. Jenny's attempts to reassure her fall on deaf ears, and a desperate Nora takes matters into her own hands.

Jenny is seconded to a short-staffed London Hospital to work on the male surgical ward. Hesitant about her temporary assignment, she becomes increasingly uneasy when she finds herself working under an intimidating surgeon. Back in Poplar, Jane, a new addition to the household, lends a hand in Jenny's absence. In one of their most unusual cases, the nuns and midwives meet a forthright pair of identical twins, one of whom is pregnant. As the two come to terms with the impact a baby will have on each of them, Jenny unexpectedly helps to save the life of an old friend.
