CALL the Midwife has confirmed the major return of a long-serving cast member for its upcoming Christmas special.
Timothy Turner – portrayed by Max Macmillan – will be returning to Call the Midwife after his character went off to medical school in the last series.
The official Facebook page of the show uploaded a picture of Max and wrote: "In the new Christmas Special, we’re delighted to feature the return from medical school of young Timothy Turner, played by Max Macmillan.
"Max is one of our longest-serving cast members – having starred in our first Christmas Special at the tender age of 11.
"But now Max is a strapping 21-year-old graduate and, just like his screen character, is now able to partake in more interesting festive aspects of Nonnatus life."
The post also included a comment from Stephen McGann, who teased Timothy's role in the upcoming episode, which will see the Nonnatus House staff faced with a busy Christmas Day.
"This year I’m delighted to be working with Max in some interesting ways in the Christmas story," he said.
"He’s a medical student – so as a GP, I’m keen to let him see a little bit more of the work I do, but it ends up being just a little bit more than we bargained for.”
Fans were thrilled with the news and took to the comments section to express their excitement.
One person wrote: "Looking forward to seeing this year’s Christmas show!
"Watching Timothy grow up and in Dr Turner’s shoes has been a joy."
