News & Interviews for The Durrells in Corfu: Season 1
This sunny and touching yarn feels like just what we need in these angst-ridden days.
The series is a rich family portrait of widowed mother Louisa Durrell (Keeley Hawes) and her four idiosyncratic children.
Given that talent for mythmaking, The Durrells of Corfu is probably as fine an introduction to the real lives of this remarkable family as could be written.
Nye's sharpest idea was to make it all more adult-orientated by bringing the role of matriarch Mrs Durrell (Keeley Hawes) to the fore.
It is intended as 'escapist' television, as a retreat from a dark world and work on Monday morning, but I just can't escape my brain telling me, 'Three years, and not a word of Greek?'
A ludicrously dysfunctional very British family relocates to Corfu without a word of Greek, befriends a host of stereotypical locals and the odd, drunken Brit, and everything proceeds to go completely tits up. What's not to love?
The series ends with a joyful, sun-dappled party and plenty of ends left untied in preparation for series two.
Even though it fits smack in with the style of most PBS dramas, this dramedy is full of really sharp jokes and an entire community of hilariously quirky characters. In fact, the show that it most reminded me of was Parks & Recreation. It's lovely.
The Durrells, is the perfect summer vacation you have probably been aching for. We suggest you pack light, and board the binge-train as soon as possible.
It's a light drama with entertaining characters, all shot on location and the gorgeous hills and sun-dappled beaches, and the cultural color of island life is as interesting as the human story.
