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

Charming and funny
24 May 2017 | by davidscott-02140See all my reviews

While I have some empathy to other reviewers who are disappointed this series strays from the original source materials of Gerald Durrell, I have no such concerns. I haven't read any of them. Instead, I see this as a charming, sun baked, Mediterranean-blue inspired bit of froth. The family is suitably wacky, the scenery is stunning and the script is full of good fun. Opa!
