Robert Carlyle returns as Gaz 25 years after the hit film was released.
Speer played Guy in the 1997 classic comedy.
Treville - named Regent by the dying King - confirms what we’ve all known through all three series: He’s badass but importantly, damn clever with it. The opening credits haven’t even rolled when Louis succumbs to his illness, the light hearted banter with Treville and d’Artagnan making way for the Queen’s grief and a four poster bed in the middle of the Louvre. Treville leaps into action though, entrusting Athos with the safety of the new King, much to the Queen’s distress - she doesn’t know where her boy has been spirited away to, and neither does Aramis, who’s kept out of the loop by the minister.
Episode two continues to set up some delicious head to heads as the baddies step up their bullying of the peasants in Paris. Treville could take Feron any day of the week, we know that, but it’s fun to see Hugo Speer and Rupert Everett trading intellectual blows as they battle to convince the French equivalent of the DPP to support their own argument over the detained refugees.
Straight into battle, with Athos (Tom Burke) leading the charge, and the action doesn’t let up for the hour. The trademark BurkeSmirk made an appearance as Athos eavesdropped. Porthos (Howard Charles) wasn’t quite so quick to forgive, cold shouldering Aramis to begin with.
