Call the Midwife Returns: Emotional Turn for Fan Favorite Character

After a two-week hiatus that left fans disappointed, “Call the Midwife” is set to make its much-anticipated return this Sunday. The beloved BBC drama, set in Poplar, was postponed due to the Bafta Film Awards, but now it’s back to air its final two episodes of series 13, promising an emotional turn for a pivotal character.

Series 13 has seen fan-favourite character Matthew, played by Olly Rix, grappling with financial issues and marital woes with Trixie, portrayed by Helen George. In the upcoming episode, Matthew’s troubles worsen when his financial situation takes a dire turn as his car is repossessed.

In an exclusive clip from Radio Times for episode seven of series 13, viewers witness Matthew facing an emotional shock as a bailiff informs him that his car, belonging to Alyward Estates, is being reclaimed. The scene unfolds as the midwives prepare to depart from Nonnatus House for their duties, leaving Matthew stunned and helpless as he hands over the vehicle.

Concerns for Matthew’s character have been growing among fans since he first encountered difficulties with the family business and inherited debt from his late father. Speculation about actor Olly Rix’s departure from the show has only added to the anticipation surrounding Matthew’s storyline.

Addressing rumours of his character’s exit, Rix teased viewers to “watch to the end of this series” for surprises and “bumps in the road.” Reports from September 2023 indicated that scriptwriters had informed Rix of his character’s impending departure, leaving the cast and crew stunned and upset.

As the series finale approaches, viewers are eager to see how Matthew’s storyline unfolds and whether Rix’s departure will mark a significant turning point for the show.

Call the Midwife” returns to BBC One on Sunday at 8 pm, promising an emotional and dramatic episode that fans won’t want to miss.
