During filming over the last October weekend, they revealed that they were also visited by a very unexpected guest, a bat! They wrote: "Our cast members Laura Main (Shelagh) and Stephen McGann (Dr Turner) discovered a rather appropriate little stowaway snoozing in the Nonnatus House building.... a small bat!

"Barrow Hills, the mansion which serves as our Nonnatus House, is a rather large, ramshackle place, and it's perhaps not surprising that certain creatures find it a suitable place to shelter. As the actors rested in a side room before a new scene, Laura discovered the little thing in a top corner."

The cast and crew left the bat alone, and confirmed it eventually left on its own accord "to find shelter elsewhere".
