Other cast members: Maimie's character Milady is another rather unsavoury character; beautiful, but essentially a brutal spy, not to mention a man-eater much like her character in the BBC Three series 'Personal Affairs'. And while she sees her character as 'very complex and deeply flawed' it's clear we'll be seeing a lot of trouble from her.

We also have newcomer (ish) Alexandra Dowling in her first recurring TV role as Queen Anne; another character who could be described as complex as, while she is not a bad person, she continues to entertain a lover behind the back of her distinctly unromantic husband Louis XIII ('The Hobbit''s Ryan Gage). Louis XIII frustrates her with his frequent weakness and naivety, but Ryan auditioned for the role based on his contradictory persona being 'able to go from being emotional to being humorous to everything in between'.

Anne's associate Constance Bonacieux takes after her boss and also gets embroiled in extra-marital romance - with D'Artagnon. Although adventure is ripe for the actress, Tamla Kari; who is recently recognised for playing Danielle in ITV comedy 'The Job Lot'; wouldn't like to have lived in that period for real. 'Wearing a corset everyday? No ta. Also everyone would have stunk!' She says.

'The Full Monty' star Hugo Speer is the Musketeer commander Captain Treville; a loyal veteran of heroism who has to control the maverick swashbucklers. Hugo explains: 'Treville's motto is loyalty and strength - that's how he lives his life and that's how he is in regard to the king as well.'
