CALL the Midwife has been a smash hit since it first hit the small screen back in 2012, but now fans of the drama are raging at one particular storyline.
Sunday night’s episode of the beloved BBC drama saw Trixie Franklin (Helen George) take a call from Matthew Aylward (Olly Rix).
The nurse said: “Perhaps I could drop in later this week”.
“He’d love to see you – we both would,” responded the widower, referring to his son.
Some fans flocked to Twitter to share their outrage at how long it’s taking for the clearly smitten duo to get together.
One wrote: "Please, please Trixie accept any invitation to dinner, lunch, breakfast, high tea with Matthew that is going”.
"I'm happy for Trixie and Matthew to continue on being slow burn SO LONG AS they get that payoff and their happy ending together eventually", a second commented.
A third joked: "RIGHT I CAN'T TAKE THIS MUCH LONGER I NEED AT LEAST A 15 MINUTE SCENE OF TRIXIE AND MATTHEW”.

“So slow burning I’m going to smash my TV if Matthew and Trixie don’t happen soon”, added a fourth.
Trixie first met Matthew in the last season of the programme after his wife Fiona gave birth at the Lady Emily Clinic.
Fiona was tragically diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia and died shortly afterwards, paving the way for a friendship to develop between Trixie and Matthew.
Although Helen hinted at a romance back in December, she said the onscreen pair definitely faced challenges.
She told Radio Times: “It’s not just, ‘Are they going to get together or are they not?’ There are so many obstacles to overcome and it’s tricky.
“It’s a friendship really and a support network for both of them before it becomes anything romantic, and I think it takes a long time for them.
“I think as well it’s one of these things everyone else possibly sees around them before they see it themselves”.
