The Musketeers (BBC1)
The Thick Of It's Peter Capaldi is to portray another ruthless figure in the latest adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers.
Best known for his expletive-fuelled rants as spin doctor Malcolm Tucker, Peter will play Cardinal Richelieu in the 10-part series, set in 17th-century Paris and due to air on BBC1 in 2014.
The Musketeers stars Luke Pasqualino (Skins and The Borgias) as D'Artagnan. The rest of the crack team, who are King Louis XIII's personal bodyguards, will be played by Tom Burke (Athos), Santiago Cabrera (Aramis) and Howard Charles (Porthos).
