Storyline

Set in 1935 when the Englishwoman Louisa Durrell, whose life had fallen apart, decided to move from Bournemouth to the Greek island of Corfu. Her husband had died some years earlier and she has financial problems, when she suddenly announces that she and her four children will move to the island and a Homeric battle ensues as the family adapt to life on the island, especially when they discover that Corfu does not even have electricity at that time. But it is cheap, an earthly paradise and the Durrell family make the big step that will change their lives. Written by Vidas

Trivia

Many of the background performers were recruited locally as production on the island started up for each series. Regular visitors to the island often recognize staff from hotels, bars and restaurants in minor roles. Of those cast as boat crew in the port scenes, several have been recognized as genuine crew from the inter-island ferries and pleasure cruises that operate out of Corfu harbor. See more »

I love the Durrells
28 May 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I find it hard to believe that some of the reviewers can be so harsh on this series, I find it so watchable, light and easy viewing, but somehow totally engrossing. The second series has built on the success of the first, and managed to build and develop the series further. Who hasn't thought about upping sticks and moving to the sun?

I love how the series has managed to show the family's move as turbulent and wonderful at the same time. The production truly makes the most of the glorious location, it's pure escapism.

Keeley Hawes is an actress of supreme talent, and whether she's playing the tough cop Lindsay Denton from Line of Duty, or the Home County's finest here, she adds something to everything she does. The characters are wonderfully observed, each quirky in their own right, and the use of animals is always lovely.

Sad to see it come to an end at Series four, but perhaps time enough.

Heart warming, easy viewing. 8/10
