The Durrells is based upon Gerald Durrell's classic trilogy of Corfu memoirs including the much loved ‘My Family and Other Animals'. Set in 1935, this timeless drama is full of warmth, humour and fun.
A storm rages outside, so the family are stuck indoors. Aunt Hermione arrives on a visit from England with her friend Mrs Haddock, who claims to be a medium. They all decide to hold a seance to see if Louisa can be reunited with her late husband.
Louisa and Spiro tend to her market stall. He thinks she has bad taste in men, but she tells him he's just being over protective. Meanwhile, Vasilia demands that her relationship with Larry proceeds quicker than Larry wants it to.
Back at the house, Donald is tutoring Gerry on the terrace but having little luck as Gerry is distracted by a falcon trying to attack his beloved otters.
When Louisa informs her children that she is to marry Sven they immediately want to vet him. Despite them all approving of the match, well all but Leslie, they feel that something is not quite right and Louisa can't help but agree. The speed in which Sven sets the date makes Louisa question the marriage further, but the family rally round and embark on the preparations – even Leslie who hides his severe looking scorpion sting. A shock discovery by Louisa leads to a dark night of the soul with Larry. Will the wedding still go ahead and will Margo manage to entice the highly reclusive Countess to the island's event of the year?
Eager to show off his growing menagerie, Gerry delights in setting up a zoo and is dismayed at the lack of visitors forcing Louisa to ask Spiro to drum up business. Leslie's scorpion sting makes Gerry question whether he should set his collection free but will he be able to give up his cherished collection?
Feeling overwhelmed by the Durrell's, Nancy suggests she and Larry get a place of their own. Larry is unsure, Louisa resorts to underhand tactics to discourage the move and surprisingly even Leslie makes a case for Larry to stay. When Nancy says she wants to return to the UK she gives Larry an ultimatum. Will he follow his love or stay with his beloved yet highly dysfunctional family in Corfu?
Larry is furious over the reception of his last novel and Margo is bored out of her mind so has taken up soap sculpting as a hobby, whilst Gerry is trying his best to keep his animal family growing despite his mother's best efforts. However, it's Leslie who Louisa is desperately worried about when she discovers that he is seeing three different girls… at the same time. Concerned that Leslie will get hurt, Louisa takes it upon herself to help him decide who he should pick by visiting each of the girls. However, will all of the family members having an opinion, Leslie is faced with an awkward dilemma.
Louisa and Larry are both devastated to find that Aunt Hermione has passed away in her sleep. Meanwhile, Leslie finds out that he has made Daphne pregnant and is pressured by her father to ask for her hand in marriage. As Gerry becomes fascinated with an insect-covered wall in the back garden, Margo gets busy with organising a memorial service for Aunt Hermione and Louisa and Larry prepare to take her body back to England.
After arriving in Bournemouth at Aunt Hermione's house, Larry quickly sets off to visit friends in London. Louisa is left with her cousins Prue, Geoffrey and Basil who arrive to settle details of Hermione's will and attend the funeral.In London, Larry is greeted at his friend Durant's house by a group of like-minded artists – Henry Miller, Jonquil and Ruby – and begins to embrace their modern, bohemian lifestyle. Back in Corfu, Leslie takes charge of the household and is offered a job as a local policeman, whilst Spiros forbids Margo from seeing Zoltan in Louisa's absence and Gerry saves a donkey from an abusive farmer.
