character:trixie franklin

just imagine CtM doing a spin-off series in which one character gets a full episode to explain things that aren’t in CtM.

We could finally see how Shelagh grew up

We could discover how Patsy and Delia spent their holiday in Paris

How did Sister Monica-Joan’s love of cakes begin?

We could see Sister Winifred as a teacher

Trixie could spend an entire episode just shopping and I’d love her for it




30 Days of Call The Midwife, Day 3: Favourite Female Character. 

Beatrix “Trixie” Franklin is a character that epitomises strength. Her grit and determination is evident in everything she does. She’s dedicated to her work and is highly skilled at what she does. Trixie is a character that knows her own mind and isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in, even if it challenges others. But she hides behind her “war paint” and it’s not until she allows people to see beyond these layers that they see her vulnerabilities, they see someone who has been scarred by her difficult childhood and someone who is ultimately still trying to figure out where she belongs in the world. Since series 1 we’ve seen her grow in so many ways. She’s battled her problem with alcohol and come out of it a stronger person than she was before. We’ve also seen her learn that she doesn’t need a man to validate her self worth because she’s a strong enough person on her own. But she’s also learnt that she can rely on others for help when she needs it, that she does have a strong support network surrounding her and that she needs to let her barriers down occasionally and let people she the person behind the facade. She’s certainly come a long way from the bubbly young girl we first saw at Nonnatus, she’s grown into a formidable woman. 

Her name is Beatrix, but you can call her Trixie.
