This review is from: The Musketeers - Series 1 [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
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.
