It's 1935 in Bournemouth and Louisa Durrell is a young widow with four children. Hoping for a better life, she packs up the family and moves them all to Corfu. The Durrells is funny, witty and at times quite poignant. A brilliantly sharp adaptation of Gerald Durrell's autobiographical trilogy and great for a binge!
An absolute gem of a tv series, Sisters is now streaming on Netflix. Follow Julia who navigates the chaos her father created when he used his own donations to fertilise hundreds of women throughout his career as a Noble Prize winning geneticist. It's packed with drama, comedy and is completely engaging.
A fun family drama, Offspring is centred on obstetrician Nina Proudman and her family and friends, as they navigate the chaos of modern life. With great storylines, cast, plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and seven seasons available on Netflix, this is a great show to binge on.
