The cast and crew of Call the Midwife completed filming the twelfth series just last month, with a photo of the Turner family posted on the show’s Instagram account to show they had wrapped up on set.
They revealed, “It's a wrap! We've just completed our last scene for our twelfth season xxx And this year's traditional clapperboard shot belongs to…the Turners!!”.
“We ended our season filming in the Turner house set, so our Turner children were rather keen to hold the iconic clapperboard for themselves!”.
