The action-packed episode occurred immediately following the catastrophic train derailment, which resulted in several fatalities. Here is everything you need to know about what occurred at the conclusion.
What happened at the season 11 finale of Call, The Midwife?
Call Following the horrific penultimate episode; The Midwife fans were left on the edge of their seats. Lionel Corbett (played by Marc Elliott) had lost consciousness following an unexpected medical episode.
Meanwhile, his wife was in labor and on the verge of giving birth to their son, and she was excitedly awaiting his arrival. Unfortunately, Lionel was one of the first verified fatalities, and it was later discovered that he had an undiscovered brain tumor.
The midwives at Nonnatus House were compelled to inform his wife of the tragic news following her delivery. While pouring tea aboard the train, Dorothy Carnie (Stephanie Jacob) was the only other documented casualty.
She sustained severe burns and other fatal injuries, and she died in the hands of Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) and Dr. Turner (Stephen McGann). Sister Julienne seemed to have broken ribs following the collision.
Meanwhile, Dr. Turner had sustained blunt trauma to the head. While Nonnatus House served as a first-aid center for other travelers, Sister Julienne and Dr. Turner were left alone.
This was until Timothy Turner (Max Macmillan) was summoned to the train wreckage as a medic to assist the survivors. He was able to locate his father and Sister Julienne and provide assistance.
Sister Julienne was brought to the hospital when the trainee doctor suspected she had a heart attack. They were both fortunate to survive, but their injuries appeared to be life-threatening.
Dr. Turner will heal fully but be out of commission for several weeks due to a concussion and a severely wounded arm.
Sister Julienne will also heal but will not work for an extended period. She was concerned that she had reached the end of her life and informed Shelagh Turner (Laura Main) that she did not have much time left.
Fortunately, it was discovered that she had not suffered a heart attack but was in a state of acute shock.
Apart from a couple of broken ribs, she escaped with minor injuries. Due to the enormity of the destruction and the number of casualties in Poplar, Nurse Crane (Linda Bassett) was summoned from her vacation to assist.
