Call The Midwife’s cast got more than they bargained for and are convinced they were haunted by a ghost filming this year’s Christmas special.
The group travelled to the Outer Hebrides off the coast of Scotland to film their new festive special, staying at Amhuinnsuidhe Castle on the Isle of Harris.
But things soon took a turn when they got the creeps by the 19th century building, which is rumoured to be haunted by former resident Lady Sophie Scott.
Speaking about his run-in with her, showrunner Heidi Thomas told the Daily Star that she worried things could get sinister.
She said: ‘I used to come downstairs each morning wondering whose body was going to be discovered in the drawing room.’
‘By the time the gales and the rain kicked in, I started to worry that it might be mine,’ she joked.
‘It had, after all, been my idea to drag the cast, crew and entire production team to the furthermost, most wind-lashed outpost of the British Isles.’
This year’s Call The Midwife Christmas special will see the gang get into trouble as the cold weather hits the Outer Hebrides just as the women arrive.
The girls answer the call for help from the area in desperate need for nurses and midwives.
The BBC teased: ‘Exposed to the elements, they operate in bleak conditions with limited access to water and electricity to help their patients, just in time to reconvene in Poplar for Christmas.’
Call The Midwife Christmas special airs this December on BBC One.
