What The Durrells Did Next, Sunday 19 May, 7pm, ITV HD (CH 103/113). Also available for 7 days in Catch Up > Channels > ITV Hub

With the ITV drama in its fourth – and final – series, you’ll soon be missing The Durrells and all of their fun in the sun. The family arrived on the Greek island of Corfu in 1935 and lived there until 1939, when most of them left after the Second World War broke out. The TV adventures are all based on true events from the real family’s time on the island, and much of the series is actually filmed there. 


But, just because The Durrells is wrapping up, it doesn’t mean your time with the family also needs to come to an end. Find out What The Durrells Did Next in ITV’s one-off special.

Familiarise yourself with the family below and click/flip the cards to find out about the actors who play them.
