A new review for Da Vinci's Demons has been shared on this website, from someone who just discovered the "under-rated but brilliant" series, and it has some kind words to say about Tom's performance. Read it in full on the website.
As soon as I started watching the first episode, I knew I had finally found a series worthy of my attention. Maybe it was the beautiful enigmatic soundtrack, the flowing clothes, Tom Riley’s masterful portrayal of Da Vinci, or Blake Ritson’s honeyed voice – perfect for an antagonist – I was hooked.
Da Vinci is a dreamer, a genius, an artist – someone whose thought processes are so fast and complex that soon, not just Florence, but the whole of Italy would know his name. Tom Riley plays the part perfectly, amalgamating the vision of the eccentric with an all-too human passion and zest for the mysteries of life.
