Professional Reviews:

"THIS BBC/PBS co-production is a 4-part series that combines eye-popping cinematography with rather off-beat examples illustrating the seemingly simple concepts of color, elements, motion and shape. This Blu-ray is everything it should be to present the array of marvelous high-def imagery. The HD sound is also terrific, with the many sound effects offered, as well as the extremely clear voice of that mysterious narrator, whoever he may be." - Hampton Roads

"A pleasant series very loosely based on Gerald Durrell's "Corfu" trilogy that will entertain you with its gorgeous scenery and lighthearted comedic touch, The Durrells in Corfu is another strong entry in the Masterpiece catalogue." - TheatreByte

3 out of 4 stars
"It's a light drama with entertaining characters, shot on location in Greece where the gorgeous hills, sun-dappled beaches, and cultural color of island life are as interesting as the human story." - Video Librarian
