A diabetic girl faces heartbreak when she falls pregnant following a clandestine romance, and the midwives get involved with a settlement of Irish travellers.
Another episode of this series which always hits the right note. Not exactly soul-destroying, but still very well done. The representation of ‘bad done good’ from a family of good apples was interesting and certainly shows how familial prejudice should be put aside.
This episode also brings in Maria Doyle Kennedy as the Irish traveller having her 11th child, while also worrying about her ill grandmother. The bonds represented there were heartwarming and tender.
I have loved this show since it began, because everyone finds hope in renewal and new beginnings. Light can be found in the darkest corners.
MY RATING: ***.5 / *****
