In the second episode of the new series of The Durrells Larry is excited as his latest novel is being published in England today, but everyone seems far too busy to notice. Even Louisa is more concerned with baking for the market. Gutted that the family have not even read his novel, Larry is further disappointed when his attempts to show it off at a local bar go unnoticed. Leslie’s interest is piqued when he overhears Margo and Pavlos (Nikos Orestis Chaniotakis) discussing how kumquat liquor is made.
Seeing this as a potential business venture, he ropes Larry into his scheme who becomes more attentive when he learns how quickly it can be made. Margo, however, is unhappy that they are stealing the monk’s recipe. In order to make things up to Larry, Louisa decides to arrange a reading evening. But will the event be all she and Larry hope for?
Keeley Hawes returns in the role of Louisa Durrell for series two of the hit drama based upon Gerald Durrell’s trilogy of Corfu memoirs, including My Family and Other Animals. On a whim, Louisa had taken her eldest son Larry (Josh O’Connor)’s suggestion and made the life-changing decision to whisk her four unruly children away to the sundrenched island of Corfu. As well as Larry, there were teenagers Leslie (Callum Woodhouse) and Margo (Daisy Waterstone), and 11-year-old Gerry (Milo Parker).
