If you are a fan of Tom Riley as Leonardo da Vinci – and you should be – plan your evening around watching tonight’s new episode of Da Vinci’s Demons; his performance is breathtakingly good. The whole episode is excellent but Riley’s work will haunt you. And speaking of “haunting”, yes, the is-it-supernatural-or-is-it-something-else thread does continue tonight.
Here to help you prepare are two clips, plus a really great chart of who everyone is and how they’re related to each other. Although you don’t need to have it memorized or even learned at all, if you check it out now you’ll find that it enhances your viewing experience tonight.
Eye candy, fights, invention imagining, political intrigue, it’s all here, plus an excellent serving of Da Vinci as somewhat mad, which is exquisite. Don’t miss it.
Da Vinci’s Demons, starring Tom Riley, Laura Haddock, Lara Pulver, Greg Chillin, Elliot Cowan, and Blake Ritson, airs Fridays at 9/8c on Starz.
