But Cardinal Richelieu has plans to increase his political power and seeks to sabotage the musketeers.  Meanwhile, d’Artagnan travels from his family farm in Gascony to Paris to petition the king, but he is forced to find the Musketeers and seek vengeance for the brutal murder of a loved one. Will d’Artagnan bring the murderer to justice, and can the Musketeers protect king and country? Or will the Cardinal triumph with the help of the beautiful and dangerous Milady? Luke Pasqualino plays d’Artagnan, Tom Burke is Athos, Howard Charles is Porthos, and Peter Capaldi plays Cardinal Richelieu.
