Call The Midwife Update: Charlotte Ritchie has left her role as Nurse Barbara in a BBC season show that shows all the way back in 2018. Her character was part of a four-episode series before she died of septicemia with her husband Tom Hereward (played by Jack Ashton) by her side. Looking back at her exit from the game, Charlotte admitted she regretted how she left the series.
The actor sat down with his family to watch his death play on TV and back then, he wished he could choose a better partner.
It’s a bad idea, he told Radio Times recalling his last scenes. Don’t look at your character passing by your mother. It helped her to turn around and see that I was still alive. But, all in all … a really bad idea.
Charlotte has expressed her hope that the death of her character will be cathartic for those watching at home.

However, he added that it was a sad moment for him: “Not just a story – it was sad to know that I had definitely left the game.
I remember calling the midwife and I remember being Barbara at the table with Trixie. While Charlotte hoped the door might be left open to return, the authors had a different approach in her mind.
It’s an emotional thought so now… I was crying about losing someone I care about and had just had a baby, so I started crying… with tears everywhere. The director asked if I could stop crying for the next take, but I didn’t think I could stop crying at all.
I couldn’t stand it and start all over again – so I said, You might have to see what you can do with that take.
Since her departure from Call the Midwife, Charlotte has starred in the BBC One sitcom Ghosts and Feel Good with Mae Martin on Channel 4.
This month, viewers will be able to see Charlotte return to TV with the second series of Dead Pixels on E4.
Her character, Alison, is the most intriguing genius of hardcore actors Meg and Nicky, played by Alexa Davies and Will Merrick.
While the three of them find themselves in the visual world of multiplayer online cartoons in the first series, the new episodes will see Charlotte’s character allow her friends to experience themselves in the real world.
