Da Vinci's Demons: 25 second season 3 trailer

Starz has been broadcasting a slightly longer trailer for Da Vinci's Demons season 3, in its previews on the channel. It is not the full trailer we anticipated - I was wrong yet again - I apologise. It does however, show some interesting new characters, and existing ones in very intriguing situations. 

For those who get Starz, please watch it on the channel. For those outside the US, I uploaded a very poor quality version I recorded (with help).

It is VERY important that as many people possible watch Da Vinci's Demons season 3 when it is broadcast, in places the numbers can be counted, for Starz and FOX to consider a season 4. Tell your family and friends to get Starz / FOX, to buy the DVDs, and to download only from reputable sources i.e. iTunes! Prove to Starz and FOX that another season is worth investing in!

Let the next choice be the one that defines you.


Da Vinci's Demons: season 2 location photos

A number of interesting photos from filming Da Vinci's Demons season 2 on location, including possibly Puzzle Wood or Fforest Fawr, have been shared online by the company responsible for the safety of the shoot. Although Margam Castle can also be seen, the photos seem to be mainly from filming The Sun and the Moon and The Fall from Heaven. The beach photos could be from the military beach Ed Thomas referred to in his Independent interview, but we don't know its exact location.

The above photo was recently shared by Starz on Instagram.
