In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free. The secret history of Leonardo da Vinci's tantalising life reveals a portrait of a young man tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic and sceptic intent on exposing the lies of religion. An insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society. A bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father. He finds himself in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries. A conflict between truth and lies, religion and science, past and future. His aspirations to improve his position in life bring him into contact with the two opposing forces of the time—the Vatican and the Medici family who both try and lure him onto their side. Leonardo must take up the fight against foes who use history to suppress the truth. A hero armed only with his genius, da Vinci stands alone against the darkness within, and the darkness without. Facing an uncertain future, his quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he explores the fringes of his own sanity. Da Vinci uses his unparalleled genius as a weapon against his enemies and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light. His story becomes a mirror into our own world, calling us all to join his fight to Free the Future.

Tom Riley clearly relishes his role as Leonardo, it played with shades of Indiana Jones, Batman and Doctor Who (in Tennant mode). Villains abound, but Blake Ritson's is the one mainly to hiss - softly spoken and truly vicious when needs be, which is often. (Opinion may be divided about his sunglasses and hat.)
Visually stunning, much is made of Leonardo's illustrations. Some sequences totally uplift - as with his observation of birds in flight - magical.
Eight episodes of almost an hour. Abundant throughout are humour, excitements and sex. (Gratuitous nudity? Again viewers will be divided, eyebrows likely to rise at certain early unclad appearances.) Surprises include the episode featuring Vlad the Impaler, arguably one of the most chilling portrayals ever.
Several commentaries - all of them helpful, later ones especially. Unexpectedly what seem some of the more outrageous incidents are based on fact - including slaughter in the cathedral at the season's start and the end. Leonardo was also tried in real life for sodomy. (How the matter was resolved in this version, ludicrous but hilarious invention.) Creator David S. Goyer concedes that events in this episode (no.Read more ›
Will probably not be troubling Season 2, but enjoyed this one.
It was Da Vinci's Demons.
It's very hard to articulate exactly how much I love this series and why in an intelligent way without dissolving into an incomprehensible, fangirling puddle of ooze. It is a fantasy, a mystery, an adventure, a romance, a drama and a comedy all in one. It's also just pure, energetic, aesthetically beautiful joy from start to finish, and underneath the sleek, glossy production values beats a heart of pure gold - it looks good, yes, but it also has the emotion, tightly written plot, charismatic cast and incredible score to back it up.
Occasionally lapsing into slow-mo shots and exquisite animation sequences that look like a graphic novel sprung to life, da Vinci's Demons is what HD was created for. It is set in a heart-achingly beautiful, apparently perpetually sunset-streaked CGI rendered Florence, with all of the sumptuous set pieces and dark historical drama of The Borgias except with all the boring bits cut out and a big sense of fun thrown in. The music deserves awards - the most memorable pieces of the entire swelling score are the main theme, reversioned and reprised on different instruments throughout, and Lucrezia's lullaby theme. Tom Riley plays the twitching, sharp-minded, manipulative yet soft-hearted Maestro himself, and what a mesmerisingly emotional yet always good-humoured performance he gives.Read more ›
