Romance, action, betrayal, suspense—this timeless BBC adaptation of The Three Musketeers has it all.
In 1620s France, the young, poor and unfailingly ambitious d’Artagnan (BAFTA- nominee Joss Ackland) leaves his humble village and treks to Paris on a quest to join the Musketeers of the Guard. At first, he’s ridiculed, abused, and scorned—but after he impresses the three highest-esteemed musketeers in the land, they take him under their wing.
With Porthos (Brian Blessed, Z Cars), Athos (Jeremy Young), and Aramis (John Woodvine) at his side, d’Artagnan sharpens his skills as a swordsman and, more often than not, is forced to put them to the test. The gang becomes entangled in a web of lies, love, violence and deceit among the French royalty, treacherous territory where even one wrong move could land them in prison—or worse.
Over the course of 16 thrilling, masterfully-crafted episodes, this series from “the heyday of the BBC’s classic Sunday serial” (The Telegraph) traces through Alexandre Dumas’ masterwork with style—bringing 17th century France to life in all its swashbuckling, chivalric, captivating glory
