I have watched all the Musketeer movies so I was thrilled when I found out that the BBC had commissioned a series of the Musketeers. I was not disappointed. It is fabulous and I have lost count of the number of times I have watched Series 1 since purchasing the DVD. The acting, storylines, location, costumes, everything is just superb. The actors gel really well together and seem perfect for the characters they play. They are so well cast: Athos (Tom Burke) the intense and serious one, Aramis (Santiago Carberera) the charming one all the ladies fall for, Porthos (Howard Charles) the cute one always ready for action and D'Artangnan (Luke Pasquilino) the youngest one, brave and so in love with the lovely Constance (Tamla Kari). Maimie McCoy is great as the beautiful and ruthless assassin, Milady De Winter and I really like Ryan Gage who plays the pampered and petulant King Louis XIII. Peter Capaldi is brilliant as the devious Cardinal Richlieu. The choice of the Czech Republic as France in the 1630s is an inspired choice with its rustic and ancient buildings. Absolutely love the series.

If you enjoy watching sexy guys engaging in sword fighting, romancing women, cracking a few jokes and battling the enemy - and all of it set within 17th century France - then this is the show for you..

It's a series of stand-alone episodes but with a long-term story arc developing in the background, which finally comes together by the series final. It's not a drama that has complex storylines or anti-heroes and it doesn't stick faithfully to the original book source, which may annoy purists - though all the main characters are present - it's just a 'lighter' drama for those who want to watch something different to the almost constant dark and gritty crime dramas that are common today. It does have a modern twist, with issues such as slavery and women's rights coming up in two episodes and even Constance is a bit of a modern girl at the side of many previous and dull incarnations of the character - and this time she's married, as the books author originally intended.

The four main characters are well cast and distinctive from one another in a realistic fashion, from young D'artagnan ( Luke Pasqualino does a good job of bringing warmth and humour but also a little darkness to a character who's often the dullest of the main characters or too boyish for some viewers to take seriously. At 23 years of age, he still makes a young, immature and cocky D'artagnan but one with hints of the handsome man and great Musketeer he will become ) to brooding Athos to ladies-man Aramis ( though he has dark aspects to his character as well, crucial to a character who could so easily be 2 dimensional ) to a Porthas who's clearly Porthas but not as cliché or OTT as previous incarnations, making him just as handsome as the other three musketeers.

1625. France abounds with enemies without and within, Louis XIII the weak pleasure-loving monarch the Musketeers are duty-bound to protect. Athos, Porthos and Aramis are the bodyguards enemies need most to fear, hotheaded D'Artagnan desperate to join their ranks.

Cue for ten hour long dramatic episodes, their climax packed with surprises.

Welcome here great entertainment all the way through, those involved combining to create something special. Visually the series is a stunner, Prague convincingly Paris. Scriptwriters ensure all moves at a pace, double-dealing rampant, action and humour skilfully intertwined. The whole cast impresses, especially the leads. Full-blooded villains prove worthy adversaries, duplicitous Cardinal Richelieu skilfully manipulating all. (Peter Capaldi will prove a hard act to follow, now the actor is otherwise engaged.)

Here is a treat for those who like their heroes rugged, battle scarred, with troubled pasts - each with personal demons to overcome as the series progresses. Luke Pasqualino's passionate D'Artagnan stirs the emotions, awesome challenges faced whilst seeking to avenge his father's death. The women are by no means overshadowed: Constance a worthy ally; Milady de Winter not for a second to be trusted.

The box set comes with interesting bonuses about the sets, costumes, rigorous training undergone by the four leads. Also described is how that awesome climatic battle was staged.

In short? A triumph, all the praise thoroughly justified.

If you are partial to leather-clad men, or to strong, brave, handsome actors of mediterranean appearance or even to a rattling good storyline, then this is right up your street! I watched this series on TV but felt I just had to watch it again (and again) to make sure I had understood the full meaning of each and every episode..... I'm still struggling.........
