The Durrells In Corfu Review
This episode of The Durrells was definitely the best this season. Louisa and Leslie’s visit to London was hilarious. Henry Lloyd-Hughes was a great addition to the show and the others were fun as well. Gerald’s donkey adventure was somewhat depressing, but uplifting too. Sorry for any errors above. Got really busy with work and had to rush the review. Loved this episode though. It scores a solid 8.5 out of 10. Catch up with previous recaps of The Durrells In Corfu right now.
