Phyllis Crane


First Appears: Season 4
Played by: Linda Bassett

Nurse Phyllis Crane comes from Leeds to help out in Nurse Cynthia Miller’s absence. She's a career woman, very dedicated to both midwifery and also educating the younger midwives — often when they don't need it but she thinks they do! As a midwife, she keeps abreast of everything new and embraces change when she agrees with it. She's always reading the latest publications and puts a lot of energy into being a better and better midwife. 

The executive producer of the series introduces the new characters of Season 4.
