The BBC has released four character trailers for The Musketeers. The mini-series debuts in the UK on January 19th. However, for those of us interested in the series in US, there is no release date. This is unfortunate as it will be the first and best thing to hold over Doctor Who fans who want to see more of Peter Capaldi. Capaldi is playing the series’ villain Cardinal Richelieu.
Synopsis: The Musketeers created by Adrian Hodges, 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 is a BBC Drama Production for BBC One, co-produced by BBC America and BBC WorldWide.
