“When you’re there and you’re filming the scenes, it’s always more shocking than you’d think,” says Jennifer Kirby.
She’s talking about the first episode of Call the Midwife series eight, where her character Nurse Valerie Dyer decides to help a desperate woman miscarrying after a backstreet abortion. “I don’t care how this has come about, I’m going to help you, do you hear me?” she says.
