First Appears: Season 8
Played by: Fenella Woolgar
Sister Hilda is a new nun at Nonnatus House. Middle class, loquacious and good-humoured, Sister Hilda is a great facilitator in the social setting with her gregarious nature, readily putting people at ease. In haste, she can make tactless comments, but is never offensive and is quick to apologise.
She attended a girl’s catholic boarding school, worked and lived in the East End during the Blitz in the WAAFS but has not been back for 20 years and is surprised at the multicultural and geographical changes to the area. She is an experienced midwife.
