As a result, losing a member of that family can be incredibly sad, whether it be a beloved character on screen or a beloved crew member behind the camera.
In the eighth and last episode of the eleventh season of Call the Midwife, numerous people’s lives were in danger, and the program also paid a heartfelt farewell to Kevin Corbishley.
