Season 3 of “The Durrells in Corfu” Out Now

“The Durrells in Corfu,” inspired by the writings of Gerald Durrell, has started Season 3 this past week. The PBS series highlights the adventures of the Durrell family as they learn to live on the island of Corfu.

Meghan O’Keefy from The Decider gave a great review of the season:

“This quaintly-titled series is like a burst of sunshine after a week of dreary grey skies. Sweet, funny, and breathlessly exuberant, The Durrells in Corfu might just be the show we all need right now.”

In late September, The Spectator explored the true lives of the Durrell family compared to the fiction in a piece by Richard Pine.

“Simon Nye has also used the creativity of film to elicit some striking images…Literature and science, the compulsion to write and the need to make sense of the world, all coincide in the brothers’ response to landscape and character, to the ‘spirit of place’ . It continues to engage the imagination in adventures that are psychological as well as poetic.”
