BBC’s The Musketeers Reveals Its Team

TheMusketeer_s1thumbnail_01_web_NEW
Everyone is always looking for the next Doctor Who or that next family adventure series and the BBC are pushing their new show as a candidate. The Musketeers based on the Alexandre Dumas’ book first published in 1844 is arriving next year.

We seem to have had a run of period shows recently including Robin Hood, Merlin, Atlantis and now this. I am glad that we are still getting these shows as it is great for the imaginations of both old and young viewers and allows for an hour of escapism.

This new picture gives a better flavour of the show than the original picture (above) and shows how they are selling this as a A-Team type team.

What do you think about the picture?

Created by Adrian Hodges, The Musketeers is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more an idea than reality. More than King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards, Athos, Aramis and Porthos stand resolutely for social justice, for honor, for valor, for love – and for the thrill of it. Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) will star as D’Artagnan alongside Musketeers Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. Together they are a crack-team of highly trained soldiers. The Musketeers, premiering in 2014, is a BBC Drama Production for BBC One, co-produced by BBC America and BBC Worldwide.
