“One for all and all for one!” And tonight, that one is Earache’s very own Emma Lowndes!
Swashbuckling romp “The Musketeers” returns tonight with another exciting and perilous adventure. A young peasant woman has inspired a popular uprising with her visions of a holy war against the Spanish, which are very dangerous ideas to be spreading about in neighbouring France…
The king sends the swordsmen to talk to prophet Emilie of Duras, the superb Emma Lowndes, who is raising an army to march on Spain as a result of visions she claims to have received from God. It’s clear she and her followers pose a danger, and as anti-Spanish riots begin, Aramis is chosen to return to her camp and discredit the woman – before she pushes France into an ill-timed war with its neighbouring country.
Catch the action on BBC1 at 9pm tonight.
