The Durrells in Coru, Season 4: Margo’s Journey

(gentle guitar music) – So Margo heads to the UK because she suddenly realized
that she’s growing up and actually she needs
to define who she is as a young woman and a young person. – I think she begins feeling very trapped and she feels a bit like
she’s outgrown her family. Then she decides maybe I
should get away from them, and that first place she
thinks of is England. – My own son had turned 18 this year, and you don’t want your children to leave, but you have to set them free. – Prue and Geoffrey are very
classic British eccentrics. Geoff and Felicity play
them so funnily and so well. – They live in a small,
little Dorset village, their horizons are quite narrow. They’ve got a sort of routine which they don’t like to break. The house is very ordered,
into which Margo comes. She brings a sense of
the exotic to Dorset. – We didn’t, sadly, go to Dorset, we went to the Surrey Hills, to a charming village called Peaslake. – We had two location days
when we were in England, one of them was in a cinema, which was fine ’cause we were indoors. And the only day we had to film outside was pouring with rain. – If you get to play the
English stuffy relatives, then fortunately this is the territory, rain, hailstones, no
sunshine and no calamari. (gentle music)

    Deep down, we all have a little Margo inside us–just trying to figure out where we fit in. Thanks Masterpiece PBS for bringing this delightful series to us.

    Love Margo, she's funny, quirky, pretty and cool. Gonna miss The Durrells SO much, but happy to have gotten to know them.
