As the new series begins, Louisa has opened the doors of the villa as a boarding house and Basil and two Australian dancers have become official guests. To save money, the girls instantly move into Larry’s room – much to his delight – but it’s soon clear that Basil has become the most pernickety guest ever.

The family warm to mysterious guests Lazaros Vangalotos until Theo reveals he is a wanted man. Knowing he is being framed for his actions, the Durrells strive to help Vangalotos escape the island.

Meanwhile, Gerry acquires a new pet in the form of Ulysees the owl and proclaims he is going to open a zoo and feeling she needs more from her life, Margo embarks on a new project to work as a hairdresser.

ITV3 gets a brand new 4-part series The Comedy Years

The Comedy Years will look back at how comedy shaped and defined specific years over the past 4 decades. The four years covered in the series will be 1979, 1984, 1998 and 2003.

Each of the hour-long shows will mix classic comedy archive with social history and pop culture nostalgia. They will show how each year’s comedy reflected a changing Britain – from the Thatcher era of satire of Not The Nine O’clock News and Spitting Image to groundbreaking comedy series like The Royle Family, The Young Ones and The Office.
