The Durrells, also known as The Durrells in Corfu, is a British television series in the genre of comedy and drama. The story takes inspiration from the three autobiographical books written by Gerald Durrell which contained information about his family’s four years of the Greek island of Corfu. The series is directed by Steve Barron and Roger Goldby, with Simon Nye writing the script, and the production is done by Christopher Hall. The consultant of the series was Lee Durrell, the widow of Gerald Durrell who is also the director of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. The series was filmed in the original location of the book Corfu with certain shots being taken at Twickenham studios and Eating studios.
The plot is taken from the autobiographical book by Gerald Durrell titled My Family and Other Animals which tells the story of his family, which consists of himself, his three siblings, and his widowed mother and the funny slightly exaggerated things that happened after they moved to the Greek island in Corfu in 1933. Gerald loved nature and it helped that his mother was an easy-going and eccentric person who allowed Gerald to keep the wild animals he found as pets along with making friends with the local people.
