Fabulous drama, perfectly cast and set. Locations are very atmospheric and the costumes are beautiful. It is a great escapist romp. So pleased the BBC have announced a second series........cannot wait!!

Would like to correct M. Evans who seems to have ethnic issues of his own. Firstly the actor who plays D'Artagnan is not of Asian origin but British born of Italian parents and secondly I am sure Alexandre Dumas (pere) would have applauded the choice of a mixed race actor playing Porthos. After all his own father, Thomas-Alexander Dumas, was mixed race (French father Haitian mother) and a highly decorated general in the French Army. Could be the BBC are paying homage to that......and why not!

The BBC take on a classic story and give it a neat spruce up. The Musketeers may not be historically accurate or totally true to the original book but it is gloriously good fun.

This interpretation has action by the bucket load and a smattering of mystery to hook you to the end. In fact this is exactly what a dull Sunday evening line up needed. An injection of fun.

It's not particularly clever or ground breaking but it does entertain which on a basic level is all a program like this should do. The actors are game and with a few well known cameos littered throughout there is plenty here to like.

It also doesn't follow the same rigid formula the BBC likes to settle into with the likes of Robin Hood, Merlin and to some extent Doctor Who. Each episode offers something new.

The Musketeers offers plenty of bang for its buck and if it isn't as finely crafted as some of the aforementioned shows it certainly has potential to grow. Another series would be most welcome.

This series was great fun and I can't wait for the next one to come out. Each episode was full of action, unexpected twists and laugh out lous moments. I enjoyed all of the episodes and there were lots that really stood out, espeically the last episode which was brilliant.
There is some great acting too. My favourite musketeers is Aramis, Santiago Cabrera. Peter Capaldi (Dr Who!) is an amazing actor and you could really see how talented he was here. My most watchable character, however, is Milady played by Maimie McCoy - totally evil, totally awesome! I loved the fact that the bad guys (Cardinal Richelieu and Milady) weren't just evil but you could understand them.

I enjoy most of the dramas which the BBC shows like these, Robin Hood, Merlin, Atlantis, they were/are all good..but this one i think is going to be my favourite so far, 4 episodes in and i am hooked.
The casting is fantastic, they have got four really contrasting yet complimentary actors in the main roles, ( i love Aramis/Santiago the best!) and the episodes are fast, fun and feel like a mini movie each week.
Well worth a watch i say!

It may be a bit CSI / NCIS at times with the Musketeers having to solve some sort of mystery (often involving murder), but BBC's Musketeers is a tremendous amount of fun. I always end up smiling at the end of each episode. The plots can be a bit daft, but for me, this is light entertainment - turn the brain off and enjoy. It's well made and the casting is simply perfect - all 4 leads are likable and love the sense of friendship and camaraderie between them - ironically, the show actually does suffer a little from a lack of shared screen time with all 4 Musketeers together; hopefully this will be addressed in the next series.

My wife and I watched the full series of Musketeers when it was broadcast on TV, we loved it and purchased this Blu Ray, so that we could watch it when we wanted to again, winter is looming upon us, so a perfect purchase. We have been watching the very interesting extras for now and the quality is superb, so if you liked the series on TV enough to want to purchase like we did, then do not hesitate, as this is well worth the money for 3 discs of enjoyment in excellent quality reproduction.
