Storming its’ way into view today is the brand new trailer for upcoming BBC show The Musketeers set to hit screens at the end of January.  The 10-part series has a cracking cast, top quality writer and, if the trailer is anything to go by, some serious action to keep us entertained on what appears to be the BBC’s new Saturday night ‘must-see TV’.

Fans of Doctor Who can starve off their withdrawal following the Christmas Day regeneration as 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi plays statesman Cardinal Richelieu, the main enemy of the Musketeers. Filling the Musketeers’ boots are Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) as D’Artagnan, Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. Here’s the very worthy sounding plot summed up:
