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.
Leslie falls in with a bad crowd and ends up being falsely accused of armed robbery, prompting Louisa to take desperate measures to save him. Margo takes a shine to a gardener at the Villa Mavrodaki, Captain Creech returns, and the family realises the extent of Gerry's passion for animals when he turns his bedroom into a centre for scientific learning.
Just when life is looking good for the Durrells, Louisa learns her domineering Aunt Hermione, Hermione's neurotic niece, Cousin Prue and Prue's lumpen husband, Geoffrey will be visiting. As true Anglophiles they complain about the primitive nature of the island and view what the family are achieving with distaste. Hermione is unimpressed that when Larry isn't furious about his latest book rejection, he spends his entire time in his bedroom with his newly arrived girlfriend, Nancy.
Sven survives a grilling by his potential new family and passes with flying colours.
A feral Gerry is sleeping outside, blissfully happy with his many animals that are also invading the house - Louisa wakes up next to a sheep! Perennially poor they forgo mosquito nets resulting in Margo being bitten terribly and to everyone's horror Larry and Leslie are growing moustaches. Louisa declares that things have to change and decides to sell what meagre produce they can raise from their land at the local market. Being British they are given the worst pitch and must endure the baking sun whilst being shunned by the locals.
Larry is excited, his latest novel is being published in England today, however, everyone seems far too busy to notice. Even Louisa is more concerned with baking for the market. Gutted that the family haven't even read his novel, Larry is further disappointed when his attempts to show it off at a local bar go unnoticed.
No one, not even Louisa knows the exact date of her birthday, but upon seeing how much she is missing Larry, the family decide to throw her a party to cheer her up.
Larry's bachelor life is interrupted by the arrival of Louisa with a food parcel. Louisa admits that she misses his intellectual conversations but Larry replies with a cutting remark about her age. With Louisa unwilling to rush into things with Hugh, Larry informs her that soon all her children will be leaving home so what is she waiting for? Reluctantly, Louisa takes Hugh up on his date where she learns some shocking truths about Vasilia. Hugh is irked when his car breaks down and Spiro comes to the rescue.
