Format: DVD
'Da Vinci's Demons' is a historical fantasy drama that presents a highly fictionalised account of Leonardo da Vinci's life. It was scripted by Batman writer David Goyer. The whole thing is a bit of a stretch, to be frank. For example, there is absolutely no evidence whatever that Leonardo travelled to South America or ever met anyone who had travelled to South America, and yet there he is in Machu Picchu in Peru. If this show is to be believed he would have been so preoccupied with sodomy, international travel, poisonings and so forth, that he scarcely would have had time to knock out the Mona Lisa. But, as I say, this is historical fantasy and so a fair old measure of suspension of disbelief is required if you really want to get into this - which it is probably worth doing - it has been nominated for three Emmy Awards.

******SPOILERS AHEAD******

I should have seen this coming. There were signs in the first series. I should have known when the pope took Da Vinci down to the Vatican Secret Archives to show him his collection of unexplained fascinating objects (UFOs), and when Da Vinci fought his way out of the archives with a spear that had supposedly pierced the side of Jesus (from the archives, of course) which, inexplicably, pierces straight through the armor of a papal guard, thus pinning him to the wall and allowing Da Vinci to make his escape. Then there was the episode with Vlad. A wonderful, chilling episode. Vlad says he sold his soul to Lucifer. Clearly he's mad for saying that. But then he falls from a tower. Da Vinci looks down from the tower and sees Vlad immobile on the stones below. Surely he is dead, having fallen from such a height. Yet when Da Vinci and gang descend and mount their horses, Vlad has disappeared. Is he dead? Did he really sell his soul? Does Lucifer really exist? How could he, when in an earlier episode a convent of nuns supposedly possessed by demons turns out to be suffering from a fungal infection? Lucifer visits some but not others, does he? And how are the Sons of Mithras able to travel up and down the river of time? I didn't give it much thought because I was just so relieved to have a Renaissance period drama.

Now everything's really going off the rails. Da Vinci's search for his mother and the Book of Leaves (what kind of name is the Book of Leaves, anyway?) leads him to South America where he finds a mechanical bust with a message recorded for him by his mother, saying that she's fled with the Book of Leaves in order to keep it safe, and won't Da Vinci please come and find her.
