Ones To Watch: The Musketeers

Being touted as “A thrilling world of action, adventure and romance inspired by Dumas’ legendary characters” by the BBC, tonight is the premiere of its’ latest historical action drama ‘The Musketeers’.  If you don’t know the plot already the series will follow the fortunes of The Musketeers – an elite band of soldiers operating in 17th century Paris. D’Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino), Athos (Tom Burke), Aramis (Santiago Cabrera) and Porthos (Howard Charles) fight for what is right against Cardinal Richelieu, the main enemy of the Musketeers, played by none-other than 12th Doctor Peter “Kidneys!” Capaldi.

The 10-part series has a cracking cast, top quality writing in the form of MY WEEK WITH MARILYN writer Adrian Hodges and, if the trailer is anything to go by, some serious action to keep us entertained. Watch the trailer below and don’t forget to tune in to BBC1 tonight at 9pm.
