In case you missed it Sunday (and I forgot to blog about it -- BAD RUTH!), BBC America aired the premiere of The Musketeers and it was GLORIOUS. Amazing actors, lots of leather, swords, and tons of swagger -- I am SO THERE. The cast features Luke Pasqualino as D'Artagnan, Tom Burke (lately of The Hour, may it rest in peace!) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (I. LOVE. HIM. His Lancelot in Merlin was a thing of beauty!) as Aramis, Howard Charles as Porthos, Hugo Speer as the Musketeers' captain, and Peter I'M THE NEXT FRIGGIN' DOCTOR Capaldi as Richielieu. And Tamla Kari as Constance and Maimie McCoy as Milady, and not to knock their performances but the last time I watched a Musketeers adaptation for Milady was, well...never. *wink*
Here's a preview:
