Da Vinci’s Demons (2013)
BBC Worldwide Productions/Fox
Starring: Tom Riley, Gregg Chillin, Eros Vlahos
Da Vinci’s Demons is a historical fantasy drama that imagines what Leonardo Da Vinci’s life was like as an adventuring young man. Puzzlewood has been used by the producers of the series to create the look and atmosphere of 15th century South America. The series was created by David Goyer whose other credits include the Blade and Batman film trilogies.
In the episode The Sun and The Moon, DaVinci and his men find themselves in unknown territory. As the episode develops we realize that the adventure is set in the South American jungle. This is where Puzzlewood’s exotic terrain came into its own for the episode. In the episode The Fall from Heaven, Leonardo and Riario escape the troublesome matter of almost being sacrificed.
