Peter Capaldi in The Musketeers

While waiting impatiently for Pater Capaldi's heroic DOCTOR WHO to appear, I stumbled across his role as Cardinal Richelieu, the historically real "Big Bad" in Dumas' THREE MUSKETEERS.

As one of my favorite classics in high school, I've seen many a version of the oft-filmed story but I have to say this exciting, atmospheric and lengthy adaptation may well be the best yet! Certainly better than the various "hip" versions of the past couple of decades.

And if Capaldi's hero is half as good as his villain here, he will SO be worth the wait.
