Call The Midwife star Stephen McGann is writing a book based on his character in the show.
Doctor Turner’s Casebook will contain imagery and historic information on life as a GP in the east end of London in the 1950s.
“Patrick Turner is a fascinating, complex character that I’ve had the privilege to play for five years on television” said McGann.
“So the chance to expand on his private thoughts and cares through writing about his experiences was not to be missed.”
The book is due to be published on January 28,around the same time as the new series is on BBC One.
