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.
This adaptation is far better than the recent Three Musketeers film with Orlando Bloom in 2011, but this is my current favourite adaptation of the Musketeers to date.
Again as I said before this drama is featuring great plots, well written characters, superb directed action, sword-fighting sequences and great acting by the main cast such as Tom Burke, Maimie McCoy Hugo Speer, Howard Charles, Ryan Gage, Alexandra Dowling, Sean Pertwee, Santiago Cabrera, Tamla Kari, Jason Fleymng, Ashley Walters, Annabelle Wallis, Luke Pasqualino and Peter Capaldi who will no doubt is already filming his new role as the Twelfth Doctor in Doctor Who.
But, for this series this is an excellent updated adaptation of Alexander Dumas original characters and both formats feature bonus features or extras as well.
So, my good friends, I bid you farewell, and remember ''All for one and one for all!''. Bring on series 2 now!!!
I rate the DVD and the Blu-ray five stars all round!!! From Richard Hill
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!
