There bas been much debate about how this series has been fictionalized, with any drama you have to accept that this is a story, and it does not have to be100% accurate, in the way that a documentary is. I really do not understand people who will score a series only one, when if you split apart the components that go to make a series like this, you would score way above that. It pays not to have unrealistic expectations when you approach something historical. The other thing is of course that although Leonardo Da Vinci left some amazing artworks, we know surprisingly little about his life.

I really enjoyed this series. You don't have to be artistic to appreciate the loving detail that went into creating the stories around each of his artworks, and the immense talent he undoubtedly had. Aidan Turner embraced the challenge wholeheartedly, and whilst he probably won't get nominated for any major awards, he can be proud of his work, as can the supporting cast. They created an interesting story, with beautiful sets and an appreciation for the depth of his contribution to art, and I think that counts for a lot.

I am only half-way through but enjoying this series tremendously. Firstly, the history. Having studied the life and works of Leonardo Da Vinci, I know more than many about his life. I discovered some time ago that there are not even two academic books which interpret the man or his work in matching ways. This is because Leonardo is an immensely difficult character to pin down due to scant primary sources. Therefore, I am impressed by how the creators have taken the few historical details available to us of Leonardo's life and personality and built a psychological profile of a living, breathing character in order to access the mind of the genius. It's very cleverly done and mostly seems to be inspired from his diaries and notebooks. Some viewers have forgotten this is a drama not a documentary therefore it must have a beginning, middle and end with twists and turns like all great dramas do. I believe the producers have captured a fascinating version of the spirit of Leonardo as well as portraying many little known facts and events of his life. Secondly, the drama itself: beautiful, passionate and human, just like the man. What a marvellous series to lose yourself in.

As a Leonardo enthusiast, I already know most of this is fiction, people need to realise that it's a drama series and not an actual documentary, and what a good drama series it is, i also find it funny how the people giving this a low rating based on it not being historically accurate, are also the same people complaining about the fact Leonardo is gay, if they knew what they were talking about then they would know that he was almost probably homosexual in real life, the acting is great and I'm looking forward to finishing the rest.

It's not perfect. But in only 10 episodes how can it be?

Leonardo spans decades, relationships, art, science, engineering and politics. And at its centre is a man who is at once bewildered by and in love with the world.

The show is easy to watch and will hopefully introduce a new generation to this obsessive and brilliant person - and give an insight in to one of humanity's finest periods.

Now i can enjoy Leonardo's works of art better. The Cenacolo in Milan never really captured my interest. Now i'm itching to get back there to see it. To feel the betrayal of Christ inspired by Leonardo's sense of betrayal that plagued him through his life. Similarly other works. This series may be part fiction and part fact. However it's a great way of getting better context to the life of this genius.

After a creaky start, this has become a real gem. Beautiful to look at, fascinating man and story.

Beautiful sets and scenery as well as wonderful acting brings Leonardo's world to life.

Visually stunning to look at & Aidan Turner perfectly conveys the sometimes tortured soul of the genius that was Leonardo da Vinci. The chemistry between him & Matilda de Angelis, who plays Caterina is wonderful. Unfortunately, Freddie Highmore as the detective Giraldi, is totally miscast. It's important to remember it's a drama about Leonardo's life, not a documentary, so don't expect 100% historical accuracy in this series, there are some glaring distortions of the truth. However it is a very enjoyable series & certainly well worth watching.

Really enjoying this series. Aidan Turner shows the depth of his acting skills. The sets and costumes are a visual treat.

This beautifully done series captivated me from the very beginning! It is not meant to be a documentary, but a drama to try and explain the complicated and genius man that Leonardo was. Aidan Turner is brilliant as Leonardo and Matilda de Angleis is fantastic. Their chemistry jumps off the screen. I give this production...10/10.
