The Musketeers is an all-new BBC One Drama, introducing exciting heroes, action, adventure and romance inspired by Alexandre Dumas’s legendary characters.

In episode one of this new series, the brightest and best musketeers of the King’s Regiment - Athos, Porthos and Aramis - are dispatched by Captain Treville to find a missing musketeer carrying important letters on behalf of King Louis. But Cardinal Richelieu has plans to increase his political power and seeks to sabotage the good reputation of the musketeers.

Meanwhile, d’Artagnan travels from his family farm in Gascony to Paris to petition the king, but his peaceful plans are turned upside down when he is forced to find the Musketeers and seek vengeance for the brutal murder of a loved one. Will d’Artagnan bring the murderer to justice, and can the Musketeers protect king and country? Or will the Cardinal triumph with the help of the beautiful and dangerous Milady?

Luke Pasqualino is d’Artagnan, Tom Burke is Athos, Howard Charles is Porthos, Santiago Cabrera is Aramis, Hugo Speer is Captain Treville, Ryan Gage is King Louis, Alexandra Dowling is Queen Anne, Maimie McCoy is Milady and Peter Capaldi is Cardinal Richelieu.
