Reviews

Historisch drama van de BBC (2014-2016), gebaseerd op de roman 'De drie musketiers' van Alexandre Dumas. Rond 1630 strijden de drie musketiers Athos (Tom Burke), Porthos (Howard Charles) en Aramis, en aspirant musketier d'Artagnan, in dienst van de Franse koning Lodewijk XIII tegen de gardisten van kardinaal Richelieu. Engelse critici melden dat puristen enkele feiten ontdekten die niet in overeenstemming zijn met het boek, maar vinden ook dat de kwaliteit van de serie per aflevering toeneemt. Mary McNamara (Los Angeles Times 23-06-’14): ‘(…) Refreshingly realistic in some ways and soothingly romantic in others, 'The Musketeers' is a captivating balance of spectacle and story, true enough to the essentials of the original, modern enough to understand the necessity of humor and self-reference’. 30 afleveringen.
