Comments (0)

Winter nights and period romps go hand in hand, so step forward BBC One's lavish new series The Musketeers which captured the imagination of millions last night.

The new Doctor Who Peter Capaldi was in typically fierce form and there was plenty of sharp dialogue and action shots to keep up the entertainment value on a Sunday night.

But many of you out there may have been looking beyond the fighting at the array of hunky stars brandishing their swords.

Aramis (Santiago Cabrera), D’Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino), Athos (Tom Burke) and Porthos (Howard Charles)are all contends for the ladies' attention.

But do you have a favourite among them? Let us know in the comments below!


:: The earliest known film version was a silent French production shot in 1903, followed eight years later by an American adaptation.

:: One of the most famous screen reworkings is Richard Lester's 1973 film The Three Musketeers starring Oliver Reed, Frank Finlay and Richard Chamberlain in the title roles.

:: Most people under 40 had their introduction to the novel via 1981 children's animation Dogtanian And The Three Muskehounds where the characters were depicted by canines.

:: Disney did their take in 1993 with a movie starring Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Oliver Platt, though it's best remembered for the theme tune, All For Love, sung by husky trio Sting, Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart.

:: In 2011, director Paul W.S. Anderson helmed a big screen adaptation starring Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson.
