    Peter Capaldi as Cardinal Richelieu, "scheming, ruthless and pragmatic, and the most powerful man in France".

    He may have been that but I believe France was better off with him than without him. And always gets bad press when linked to the story of The Musketeers.

    Looks quite impressive and possibly more adult orientated than Atlantis which I'm presuming it might take over from

    Peter Capaldi as Cardinal Richelieu looks like he will be dropped from further series as they say his work on Dr Who will take his time up and further story's of the musketeer's will have to find an other main villain.

    I hope the make this less comedic than Atlantis and don't have silly stuff in like recent films.

    Dr Who used to be a nine month shoot to make the usual fourteen episodes a year but they only made two this year. There's no solid news on the next series but I wouldn't be thar surprised if we get less than fourteen. If so Capaldi could return to any future series of this.

    I didnt even need to click to know you were going to reference Dogtanian - as i have the same thing on my mind when i see the trailer !

    Look forward to this. I missed Atlantis because the qucik traliers annoyed the hell out of me (not the content, but the timing). I enjoyed Merlin, Dr Who and even Robin Hood, so open to a new satruday tea time adventure series.

    yep same thing happened during the final two series of Merlin
    - alas, the later slot didn't mean Morgana or Guinevere slipped into something more comfortable

    Although the adaption of Kate Mosse' book Labyrinth, on channel 4 a year ago, allowed us to get a better view of Morgana.

    oh yes, I remember ... Isolde (as in the Celtic mythological lovers Tristan and Isolde)
    - nice outfit, playing her usual character

    Episode 1: Friends & Enemies

    Enjoyed it, it's well cast, the tone is about right without getting slapstick, not family friendly as Atlantis which is a good thing, fun, but no quite thrilling as it offers nothing new and is quite standard fare, but's the BBC and not HBO. Hopefully there will be a few twists and surprises along the way.

    Wasn't too bad at all, I did start to drift off about 20 minutes in but I was pulled back in after that. I thought the cardinal was great.
