Masterpiece, The Durrells in Corfu, Season 2

Sundays at 8 p.m. beginning Oct. 15 on Western Reserve PBS

It was a dark and stormy night—in Corfu, of all places! A spooky séance in wild weather is just one of the many adventures, along with otter breeding, a cricket showdown and the multi-generational search for romance.

Inspired by the beloved memoirs of Gerald Durrell, “The Durrells in Corfu” features Keeley Hawes as Louisa Durrell, the harried widowed mother of a brood of recalcitrant children (this season ages 12 to 22). Louisa moves the floundering family from England to Corfu in the mid 1930s to recharge their lives—hers included.

In six endearing episodes, Season 2 finds the family in dire financial straits, as usual. They have a new landlady, Vasilia, an island beauty who holds a mysterious grudge against Louisa and insists on prompt payment of the rent.
