A Drama Gem from The BBC- ideal for the long winter nights.
3 October 2016
The Musketeers series from the BBC has been a staple in our house from series 1. Although critics slammed the earlier episodes, it quickly hit it's stride and managed to be exciting with a touch of humour. The evil nemesis played by Peter Capaldi (S1), Marc Warren (s2) and Rupert Everett (s3) are your typical larger than life baddies but they fit the drama brilliantly. The production by BBC Wales drama is second to none with great camera work and fantastic musical soundtrack (especially the S3 finale theme!). It was just a shame that it was cancelled by the BBC in it's austerity drive, although s2 and especially s3 suffered from scheduling jumping due to Olympics & Euro 2016. Plenty of plots/sub plots and twists keep it fresh and leave you waiting for the next episode. We bought this when on offer and it contains all three series across 11 discs and also includes some great extras for fans of behind the scenes. The packaging is a standard box holding the three series in separate Blu-ray cases. The rear has the episodes listed as originally broadcast.
Highly recommended boxset, showing the BBC's drama output at it's best. Buy it and relive the swashbuckling adventures of the musketeers.
