The midwives strive to provide patient care during the coldest winter in 300 years. The winter of 1963 saw the United Kingdom at a standstill as temperatures were hitting record lows and severe weather was causing major disruption across the country. The season came to be called the Big Freeze, and it was the coldest winter in 300 years.

The midwives of Poplar battle snow, ice, power cuts and frozen pipes as they struggle to provide the best care for their patients. In this year’s holiday special, Dr. Turner must inform a family of the loss of a patient and uncovers an uncomfortable truth, while Valerie helps a young couple through a traumatic birth that rocks her confidence as a midwife.
