TV show description:
This historical fantasy TV show follow the adventures of a young Leonardo Da Vinci (Tom Riley) during Italy’s Renaissance period. Drawing on true historical events and many of Leonardo’s inventions, this dramatic series touches on subjects which are as relevant now as they were in the time of Da Vinci; love, equality and sexuality.
Eccentric and charismatic, the master painter and inventor struggles to deal with his own inner demons and longs for acceptance from his father (David Schofiled) as political and religious turmoil engulf 15th century Florence.
Da Vinci’s own sense of morality and justice is a stark contrast to those of the Catholic Church and the powerful families vying for control of one of Europe’s most prosperous cities.
Contracted by Lorenzo Medici (Elliot Cowan) to create an Easter spectacle, his inventions are increasingly seen as objects of war. As his unparalleled genius and quest for knowledge take over, he begins a passionate affair with Lorenzo’s wife, the beautiful Lucrezia (Laura Haddock).
Then, a chance meeting with a mysterious Turk brings back memories of his missing mother and draws him to the mysterious cult the Sons of Mithras and their search for the Book of Leaves.
Episode #28 — Ira Deorum
Following the Ottoman army’s ambush on Crusage forces, Leo must put his faith in his friends and in himself if they’re to have a chance to defeat the Turks.
First aired: December 26, 2015.
