It seems they've copied the press release from ITV word-for-word but without including the preview clip!

http://www.itv.com/news/channel/update/2017-04-11/the-durrells-confirmed-to-return-at-the-end-of-the-month/

Interesting that it says:

"Tune into ITV Channel next week to see an exclusive look behind-the-scenes in Corfu, where the series is filmed".

But particularly annoying that it doesn't give a date or time for that. But if it's 'next week', is that showing up in any TV guide or on-line schedule?

[Ah - it's a bit odd, but 'ITV Channel' may be a reference to the former 'Channel TV', a TV station specifically for the Channel Islands.]

[Sorry - Dumbo here has just realised why all this news seems to come from the Channel Islands - it's because the Jersey Zoo are always first to re-post anything to do with the Durrells.]

Now the last episode of The Durrells has finished, I wondered what everyone thought? Some of the locations were really special, especially those in last nights episode! Looking forward to visiting some of them this year.

They do seem to like going back to that precarious cliff edge in Cape Drastis; that closing drone shot showed just how close they all were to one hell of a drop!

I did notice the 'Snow White-Villa' (from one of Lesley's photographs) makes an appearance in the new animated intro, just before it cuts away from the cricket pitch, but it didn't feature in the series. I wondered if it was a clue that they'd be moving house, but they're still in the same place.

I'm not sure if the house they're in is meant to be the first villa Gerald wrote about or even if the writers will have them move at all. It's similar - and close - to the second one (the 'Daffodil-Yellow Villa), although not as big.

It does bug me all the people photographing it and claiming it to be one of the real villas rented by the family. Although not as much as the owners of 'The White House' claiming the family lived there when they didn't. It was Lawrence & Nancy's marital hideaway, not Gerald's 'Snow-White Villa'.

Though no doubt anyone in the middle of nowhere who thinks they can take some money off you now has a story of how 'The Durrells stayed here'...

I agree with all you have said Joefish. Although the house the Durrells are shown as living in is "to die for", and the front-line location is perfect, none of the villas the Durrells actually lived in were that close to the sea. Yes, I agree it is similar (but smaller) than the "Daffodil-Yellow" villa. Makes for good filming though!
Must have missed seeing the photo of the "Snow-White" villa in the intro. Do you know if the lady who was caring for stray and injured animals still lives there? She told us Gerald had visited her once on one of his return trips to Corfu!
Now I am getting 'nerdy'!

Thanks for your help Joefish .... we found the old mansion used in the filming of The Durrells. Beautiful old building with some magnificent trees. Saw the cages used to house Gerald's animals and could hear the goat bleating from somewhere in the grounds.

Can't wait. It will be good to see the warm Corfu sunshine, even if it's only on the tele.

Sorry, I wasn't buying it. It just didn't seem to suit their characters. I thought it was a step too far of 'modernising' the drama.

Not too keen either. Bit disappointed with the whole series.
