Some performers have been able to film other things concurrently, but I would imagine it's difficult. It takes them six or seven months to film 8 episodes and the Christmas special? Do they just have an extremely slow and inefficient shooting schedule? Quote But this was England in the 60s, where home births were still the norm. And, he's a Dr, so they were probably using his being on the bed as a way to show he was not playing the role of Dr, but rather, husband. Given, they rarely have ever allowed the father into the room for the birthing process on this show, I would say it would not be the norm to have the father in the room on the bed with the mother, actively participating in the birth, like they did with Dr. Turner. Though in this case, it was a couple that Sister Julienne knew extremely well and she's just mostly awesome, so I can see why she allowed them to have that moment. Link to comment
