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.All for One: Régime Diabolique.
The other cool thing about it is Cardinal Richelieu will be played by the new Doctor (Who), Peter Capaldi!
