With its critical acclaim and an ever increasing fan base, BBC ONE’s dazzling new drama The Musketeers will head to DVD and Blu-ray on 24th March 2014 This fresh 10-part adaptation of Dumas’ masterpiece tells the story of an elite group of soldiers who protect their Royal Masters at any cost.
Starring Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) as D’Artagnan, Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles (Black Forest) as Porthos, the brothers in arms fight for what is just, tackling the evil machinations of Cardinal Richelieu – played by Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, The Thick Of It).
As they are propelled across seas and battlefields from masquerade balls to a remote convent, the Musketeers defend the honour of the Queen and the life of Constance Bonacieux, d'Artagnan's true love – played by Tamla Kari (The Inbetweeners Movie).

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 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!
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.
The name of the episodes are called Friends and Enemies, Sleight in Hand, Commodities, The Good Soldier, the Homecoming, the Exiles, A Rebellious Woman, The Challenge, Knight Takes Queen and the grand finale of Musketeers Don't Die Easily.
The plot for the series is that the drama is set in 1630 or you would call it 17th century Paris for which this is a contemporary adaptation based on the characters which created by Alexander Dumas and is written by Adrian Hodges along with the writers of Susie Conklin, James Dormer, Ben Harris, James Payne and Peter McKenna.
We get to see a young D'Artagnan in training to become a Musketeer who builds up a friendship with Athos, Porthos and Aramis.
As they take up the fight to protect the King and Queen against the enemies of France they become brothers in arms as the Four Musketeers.
The Musketeers fight for honour and as their bond grows they become suspicious of the sinister scheming of Cardinal Armand Richelieu and his accomplice Madam Milady De Winter, who has a past connection to Athos.
Although, this is a big budget BBC extravaganza that delivers a slightly darker tone to this adaptation with moments of humour. Add in the technique of some great filming locations that bring huge scope to the series.
Plus, tie in a overall theme about friendship, romance (sex), revenge, intrigue, secrets and lies and you have all the right ingredients for a entertaining series rich in adventure and spectacle.Read more ›
