Cute Boy Friday: The Durrells in Corfu

I've been struggling a bit with Cute Boy Friday because cute boys have been a bit thin on the ground lately and I've not been inspired. Then I started watching The Durrells in Corfu.

Are you watching this? I've always loved the books and was really happy when I heard this was coming to Masterpiece. And it's totally great - just the kind of thing I like to watch on a Sunday night with a glass of wine or two and, as it turns out, it's chock full of cute boys. Yay!

Right? Right. Finally, I should mention the doctor-poet Theodore who is also a stealthily hot dude:

Just adorable and and smart and very into nature and stuff. And also happens to look like this: 

I LIKE NATURE TOO JUST SAYING. For the younger set there are two annoying and petulant young men and any number of adorable young Greek love interests but you'll just have to watch it and see for yourself.


  1. OMG, I had no idea this existed! My Family and Other Animals is one of my favorite books of all time - thanks so much for posting!
