Troy: Fall of a City is a Netflix original historical drama series that premiered in 2018. The show is based on the Trojan War, a legendary conflict between the ancient Greeks and Trojans, and is inspired by the epic poem, The Iliad, written by Homer. The series is led by a talented cast, including Louis Hunter as the Trojan prince, Paris, and Bella Dayne as the Spartan queen, Helen, whose love affair sparks the war. David Threlfall plays the role of Paris' father, King Priam of Troy, and Frances O'Connor portrays his wife, Queen Hecuba. Tom Weston-Jones and Johnny Harris play the roles of the Greek heroes, Hector and Agamemnon, respectively, while Joseph Mawle takes on the role of Odysseus.

The series premise revolves around the prophecy of the birth of Prince Paris, who will bring ruin to his city, Troy. Years after his birth, Paris is sent to live as a shepherd and lives a life of anonymity until he crosses paths with Helen of Sparta. Despite being married to Menelaus, the King of Sparta, Helen falls in love with Paris and flees with him back to Troy. This act ignites a war between Sparta and Troy that becomes one of the most iconic battles in history. The story is a tale of love, betrayal, honour and terror that unfolds over eight episodes.

The series chronicles the Trojan War from its earliest stages, beginning with the origins of the conflict and its eventual end. The show also borrows elements from Greek mythology and incorporates them into the storyline for added authenticity. The series has garnered praise for its attention to historical detail, as well as for its performances by the talented cast.

Troy: Fall of a City follows the classic story of the Trojan War, but the series does take some artistic liberties with the source material, allowing the show to explore areas that the poem itself was unable to. The show delves deeply into the characters' motivations and emotions, exploring the human side of the conflict. The series also takes a realistic approach to battle scenes, highlighting the brutality and savagery of ancient warfare.

In addition to the strong performances by the main cast, the series also features a roster of talented supporting actors. David Gyasi, Jonas Armstrong, Alfred Enoch, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Chris Fisher, Lemogang Tsipa, Christiaan Schoombie, Alex Lanipekun, Jonathan Pienaar, David Avery, Lex King, Inge Beckmann, Shamilla Miller, Diarmaid Murtagh, Thando Hopa, Grace Hogg-Robinson, Lise Slabber and Lauren Coe deliver strong performances that bring depth and complexity to the various characters.

Troy: Fall of a City is an epic storytelling of one of the most famous battles in history. The series is a must-watch for fans of historical dramas and Greek mythology. The show's direction is slick and tight, and the set design and cinematography are stunning. The series balances its epic scale with its focus on character development and emotional depth, making it a compelling watch.

Overall, Troy: Fall of a City is a notable addition to the genre of historical dramas. With an excellent cast, compelling storylines, and breathtaking visuals, the show is a must-watch. Despite the occasional artistic liberties and deviations from the source material, the series remains true to the spirit of the original legend, and it is an exceptional and addictive viewing experience from beginning to end.
