Call The Midwife Series 10 fans were overjoyed to see the show return last night (Sunday April 18).
The award-winning period drama returned for its 10th series and viewers were overjoyed.
As in previous series, however, it offered another emotional roller coaster ride.
What happened in the first episode of series 10 of Call The Midwife?
Series 10 of the BBC drama series began in 1966.
It introduced the audience to two friends and neighbors who were pregnant at the same time.
But there was a tragedy waiting for one of the couples – Derek and Audrey.
Her little boy was born below the waist with no legs and did not survive while Audrey’s baby was next did survive – but was born without multiple fingers.

It was found that Derek and his neighbor Phil had served in Operation Grapple in the Christmas Islands in the mid to late 1950s and were exposed to deadly radiation during nuclear tests.
It was a heartbreaking but fascinating story.
Elsewhere, fan favorite Trixie (Helen George) began a residency in a posh private clinic.
