Da Vinci’s Demons (Starz 2013, Tom Riley, Laura Haddock)



Historical drama series that brings us episodes in the life of Leonardo Da Vinci when he was a young man and just making his reputation. The Renaissance is in full swing and Leonardo has become involved with a cult that calls itself The Sons of Mithra.

This being a Starz series there is copious nudity (including a you don’t want to see that moment featuring Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville) and plenty of action.

Surprisingly the series was filmed in Swansea, Wales of all places.
