For those who can access BBC iplayer, Keats' touch has a memory is quoted in this very moving episode. A midwife, Camilla, who comes from a cold aristocratic family, faces the challenge of nursing her terminally ill, difficult mother ( Lady Browne) who has never shown her love nor, it seems, ever touched her.

A literature loving nun quotes the poem to Camilla- this scene is so affecting and powerful. This series is highly popular here, and it is wonderful our John's words are spoken so movingly and powerfully.

The oldest nun (can't remember her name) quotes from "Ode to the Nightingale" in the very first episode!
