Some pieces of literature are perhaps arguably not intended to be envisigned in anything other than cinema’s light, some perhaps are so sensitive that to try and show that singular emotion on the stage is to invite crass remarks and tactlessness in return.

The Musketeers, The Accused. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera, Howard Charles, Alexandra Dowling, Luke Pasqualino, Ryan Gage, Tamla Kari, Maimie McCoy, Hugo Speer, Marc Warren, Phil Rowson, Charlotte Salt, Ed Stoppard, Marianne Oldham, Hara Yannas.

The end game is almost upon the faithful Musketeers. The Queen stands charged with treason and treachery, Aramis is deeply involved in a scandal that could bring civil war to France and Athos has started to see the deceitful Milady De Winter in a different light once more, the combination of all these chemical, potentially nuclear like explosive elements are enough to place the future of the country into unheralded jeopardy on the scale of Agincourt.

As history has proved time and time again, when the Musketeers are in a fight, it is all for one and one for all. Thankfully in the modern retelling of the classic story and arguably the best in over a hundred and ten years of film and television portrayals, it’s not every episode that has the clichéd signal of derring-do attached to it, the near fatalistic but ultimately triumphant cheer of the Musketeer’s motto shouted across the television as if the viewer would ever forget.

Christopher Foyle’s war is never ending and post war Britain must be thankful that there was at least one honest man around who was willing to go up against so called authority in which to get to the absolute truth.
