Just like last week I sat watching #TheDurrells with a huge smile on my face! Is there a more charming show on TV? I think not! Lovely.

In Sunday night's episode of the ITV drama, eldest son Larry faced death when he suffered a bout of appendicitis with no doctor on the island.
But it was a basket full of cute puppies almost being buried alive that got people talking.
So mad that woman was going to bury the puppies alive ?? #TheDurrells

Mum Louisa (Keeley) has proved to be the biggest hit with viewers, with many being quite vocal about her unruly and ungrateful brood.

Wanted to like #TheDurrells but those obnoxious, rude, selfish and arrogant children completely spoil it.

One fan suggested an answer to the struggling mum's problems...
The solution for Mrs Durrell would be to shoot all her obnoxious children and have a good time! #TheDurrells

Still, this week's instalment did hint at brighter times and the possibility of romance ahead.
Not sure how Keeley Hawes muddles on on this small island with only eighteen possible second husbands. #TheDurrells
