Great modern take on a wonderful classic,
This review is from: The Musketeers [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
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!

This is the BEST show on tv for ages. I love everything about it from the opening theme music, the beautiful costumes and the wonderful cast. I too, cannot wait for the next series. In the meantime I will just have to watch series one all over again.

An excellent serial and I'm so glad the Beeb has decided to commission a second series! Loosing Peter Capaldi is a bit of a downer, but hopefully they will be able to find someone equally good at playing the villain, to fill his shoes.
The music is excellent, why the BBC hasn't released this for download beats me.
As for this thing about race, I don't care if the actors are black, white, yellow or pink with green polka dots, just so long as I enjoy their performances, that's all worries me.

I must admit I did enjoy the last episode. No, I mean it.

It is actually stated on the BBC website dedicated to the show that it is a homage to Dumas Pere, it an interview to the actor interpretating Porthos.
