“THE Durrells is not mushy in any way, ever.
“The cute stuff is always cut with very sharp humour and observation, so it’s never twee.
“That’s what I love about it. It is so clever.
“It’s such an easy and funny read. That sort of writing is some of the most difficult to do because it’s actually a little bit sharper than you imagine.”
Keeley Hawes talking to me about the glorious return of The Durrells for a third series, filmed in Corfu and Ealing Studios.
Starting on ITV at 8pm this Sunday (March 18).
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
Writing about this series is a joy – with much to look forward to over eight episodes.
