Are you a fan of The Durrells in Corfu? If so, the complete third season is now available on DVD from PBS. We love British shows and Masterpiece has some truly amazing programming on PBS.
The Durrells in Corfu
In the highly anticipated third season, the beautiful island of Corfu continues to work its magic on the eccentric Durrell family. Even a visit from Aunt Hermione isn’t the usual dreaded experience as the formerly formidable matriarch has embraced the laid-back Greek attitude and found romance. Leslie is also enjoying a much-improved love life with three very different girls. But there’s no safety in numbers when his mother and siblings decide to interfere. Margo has (temporarily) given up on love and found a new vocation, while Gerry’s obsession with animals continues to grow. As for Louisa, a trip to the UK with Larry to sort out family affairs reminds her of the restrictions of her old life. After a brush with bohemian London artists, she realizes her heart belongs to her island paradise.
New episodes of The Durrells in Corfu Season 3 will be available the day after broadcast beginning October 1, 2018, and the full season will be available on DVD ($39.99 SRP) on October 16, 2018. The runtime of the program is approximately 384 minutes with eight episodes.
Based on the memoirs of Gerald Durrell, the animal-loving youngest member of the clan, the series stars Keeley Hawes as the plucky widowed mother, Louisa Durrell; Josh O’Connor as her eldest son, Lawrence, who is destined to become a famous novelist; Callum Woodhouse as the hapless sportsman, Leslie; Daisy Waterstone as the lovelorn teen, Margo; and Milo Parker as Gerald. The bohemian Durrells fit right in with the light-hearted Greeks — except when they disastrously don’t.
The Durrells in Corfu Season 3 is a Sid Gentle Films Ltd/MASTERPIECE co-production, based on the Corfu Trilogy by Gerald Durrell. It is written by Simon Nye, directed by Roger Goldby and Niall MacCormick, and produced by Christopher Hall. The executive producers are Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, and Simon Nye for Sid Gentle Films Ltd and Rebecca Eaton for MASTERPIECE on PBS.
