9000 posts perving over Athos. It's impressive wink

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:23:21

<bows before cotherstone>

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:24:17

Hey ho!

Just looked very one second briefly at cumberbitches thread in Sleb Twaddle. They fancy his... wait for it... mole hmmconfusedenvy

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:24:26

I'm here and I have my dignity unlike Anne.

Think I'll save the alternative sex face (new title, soothes Hannah) for later.

Sparklegeek Wed 26-Mar-14 22:24:28

Well it ain't any of those 3 in the coffin.

Am worried for Athos now. He was just coming into his own.

MadamedeChevreuse Wed 26-Mar-14 22:24:33

Drink - "Tom said he was hoping to do series two so must have been alive after series 1 finished."

HOPING?? That aint good enough.


DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:24:44

And Cardinal winethanks

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:24:53


DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:26:33

The Cardinal bit was just emphasising that we were perving over him too, not just Athos.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:26:33

The Cardinal bit was just emphasising that we were perving over him too, not just Athos.

QueenAnneofAustria Wed 26-Mar-14 22:26:54

Cheers. <Smashes goblet>

Since when did this become the Athos Appreciation Society?!

<breaks second goblet, grabs Dog and leaves the Tavern>

a demain wenches.

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:27:27

Don't you think, though, that we're a fucking goldmine for social psychologists?

Put a load of posters in a themed room.
Run new sensations past them on a weekly basis.
Let them talk bollocks.
See how long they run for.

<funding runs out. Psychologists shake heads and turn away. Article in the guardian about the collapse of humanity. Unexplained upturn in sales of leather strapping.>

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:28:25

It's ok drink it was outrage as Cumbersplats! Not cardinal appreciation.

MadamedeChevreuse Wed 26-Mar-14 22:28:35

I love you, Mavis.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:28:37

Strap ons?!


QueenAnneofAustria Wed 26-Mar-14 22:29:04

Oh and I am happy to leave my dignity at the door for the threads... but when my RL opportunity arises, I will be aloof and mysterious and Aramis will be smouldering at me from across the room whilst Dog sulks.

Speaking of Dog, he is waiting.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:29:48

I'm off to tickle Cardinal. He's had a hard day at work and I want to have a hard night. wink

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:29:49

In fairness Anne, as LetUsPrey is chief gif chief <not easy to say> then there has been a positive glut of Aramis links. Now, I'm not one to complain about these things but I would say it's a largely Aramis thread. Sort of.

Def not King Spaniels anyhoo

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:30:05

I think the BBC need to put one of those thing up at the end of Sundays episode - you know, like when someone dies - dedicating it to "The Wenches"

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:30:34

Well, you would be wring, Mavishmm

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:31:12

Strapping Drink you duurty fecker.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:31:21

We are very much alive though. It could be like a nail in the coffin for usshock

Sparklegeek Wed 26-Mar-14 22:31:37

And then maybe follow it with one of those Samaritan helplines?

Like when Take That split up.

MadamedeChevreuse Wed 26-Mar-14 22:31:50

Athos panic over...Wikipedia says that "All the major actors, except Capaldi, have been "contracted for the long run"."

(Sorry Malcolm.)

So maybe Tom just likes an, ahem, "different" type of bar to the other lads.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:31:56

Well,he's busy. Have a hard night on the FLOOR. Night night.

<shoves drink out of door>
<barricades it with nuns>
<gives Armand the LUSTY EYES>

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:32:46

Night wenches. Cardinal sad gone sad soon sadsadsad

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:33:00

"The Wenches - Feb 2014-March 2014". Lacks the same gravitas as the passing of a Chelsea pensioner - non?

(not that I am, for one minute, suggesting that Sunday is it for the wenches. It simply cannot be)

Alibabaandthe40nappies Wed 26-Mar-14 22:33:40

Right I am off to bed.

MTM I don't want you to think that I've forgotten about adding Capaldi to my list. I am mulling it over, it is a serious process deciding where he should slot in. I knew you'd like that one wink

Bonsoir lovely wenches <mwah>

LetUsPrey Wed 26-Mar-14 22:33:52
DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:34:10

But he is very much present under my duvet. He even fashioned a nit so little tent out of it grin

Sparklegeek Wed 26-Mar-14 22:35:22

Can't bear to think about it.


Night night ladies. Mwah!

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:35:47
LetUsPrey Wed 26-Mar-14 22:36:47



Also off to bed. Oi Anne, send dog over later would you please? I need a cuddle.

Night wenches.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:37:53

Night night then! Traville and Armand -who is WITH ME - are bickering over heads and tail tonight. Oh they are naughty but I do like them!


MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:41:08

Night all.

As much as I'd love to have that as our theme MTM it would run the risk of defining us as middle-aged librarians having one last shot of sassiness before we give in to varifocals.

I think our theme should be Surprise Surprise

MalcolmTuckersMistress Wed 26-Mar-14 22:46:43

Oh what a brilliant idea...we should create our own play list to remind us of these fun times!!

I am going now, they are both pawing at me while DH is asleep on the couch...saucy.

LaComtessdelafere Wed 26-Mar-14 22:47:22

Night all. Battery outage and I lost you all. I'm still worried about where Burke is. This is nothing for me without Athos. Nothing. < frets like Queen on bed, unable to sleep.> . Find him people, find him.

QueenAnneofAustria Wed 26-Mar-14 22:47:22

I concur... it is Aramis appreciation due to LetUs and her stellar work and Sparkle and her Twitter, but both make a concerted effort to include all.

Was that another lurker who will become part of the tavern (a la Madame and Comtesse et al, or are they more of a 'do you think you wenches could go post elsewhere sort of lurker?)

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 26-Mar-14 22:52:50

There was a wink so I guess the lurker was friendly or a journalist.

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:55:34

Well they will have earn't their money if they wade through all 9000 odd posts of guff insights.

MavisGrind Wed 26-Mar-14 22:56:47

Off to bed. In the morrow dear wenches. <doffs hat a la aramis as Athos never seems to doff his hat>

MadamedeChevreuse Wed 26-Mar-14 23:00:52

Anne that's Ali, she's our historical advisor not a journalist. she's in and out of the tavern. (Fair enough she does have 40 babies.)

Nighty night

QueenAnneofAustria Wed 26-Mar-14 23:03:09

No, I was referring to Cotherstone at the start of this thread.

I know and love and admire Alibaba.

QueenAnneofAustria Wed 26-Mar-14 23:04:18

<goes to bed satisfied that we have 45 posts on our shiny new thread already>

QueenAnneofAustria Wed 26-Mar-14 23:14:20

For the morning wenches. Instagram is like a fucking playground.

Bloody bloody arse wiping phone died on me, couldn't keep up.

So I will say good evening, and goodnight as you're all of having relations with various beardy men.

I have laughed all the way through the 300 odd posts since early evening. You lot are fuuuuny <pushes shoulder>

I really do love each and every last one of you. I think I'm going to write a speech for Sunday. Just feels right. <proud stiff British>

Night hos xxxxxxxxxx hugzzzzzzzzxxxxx

One last thought.....

You know, if we did have to put wenches into list. Mine would like this....

wench wench wench wench wench wench...

rather than


D'ya get me?

Cos you're all special <chokes up again> Oh blaady Nora, it's gonna get messy in here Sunday. Bring tissues. ( and baby wipes etc etc... )

I hope it stays like this so I can wear my hat. (Bad hair)

Oblomov Thu 27-Mar-14 07:30:12

Found you.
Was loving the reading through of you all on re-watch.
LetUsPrey your link to Athos, in thread 9, was OUT OF THIS WORLDgrin

Most concerned about lack of Athos/Burke at Bootcamp.

Off to read rest of this thread,shouldn't really, should be getting ready for work, am sat here in my towels , post shower - is not a good lookwink - tries to drag herself away from obsessional Musketeer thread.......

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 07:34:27

Good luck with that....

Have a good day everyone, am off to herd the twits.

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 07:38:31

Morning obvs. Glad your worrying with me. Find him. Find him!!!

Right I'm off to work. Actually properly today, so I need to get my eyes off the balls and on the ball so to speak. Find Athos for me today please.

Hannah, though a newbie, because I lurked from the start I feel the same. Women are so feckin brilliantly funny. It confuses me why the majority of stand ups are men, you know??

Oblomov Thu 27-Mar-14 07:43:02

Laughing at songs - Mavis's Rozzle Kicks.
And MTM 's take that:

"We've come a long way
But we're not too sure where we've been "

Err correction.
I know EXACTLY where some of you have been:
Bosom wenching, in and out of Cardinals' confessional booth, shagging Aramis/Athos/Porthos/Cardinal/Treville/ till you can speak no more, strap ons, leather, foody sculptures, rimming and ... the list goes on.... smile

Needs someone else to do a better summary of the last 9 threads that we have had.
Haven't we laffed and laffed.
Oh some of you are WELL funny.
certainly have enjoyed the ride........

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 07:46:12
QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 07:48:26

I posted Musketeer appreciation on Twitter. Well I was understated and said it was highly entertaining and was now reading the book and was loving it. I have been favourited by something called MusketeerFans.

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 07:48:46

Obvs not ready for typing this morning. Porthos not Porhtos.

Might do a rewatch tonight. Last chance before DH is back. Which one should I go for?

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 07:48:49

Here's another contender for OUR SONG

You think it's going to be another Take That. But it's not. It is HOT. And that new imposter show on Tues has stolen it for their trailer which right peed me off.

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 07:52:06

Can't see it Sparkle. It's not Tears for Fears is it?

Oblomov I might have re-posted that Athos link you liked on this thread.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 07:52:57

No it's not Tears for Fears but is a slow & building cover of their song by Lorde.

<Down wv da kidz>

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 07:53:01

Drink funnily enough I predicted the outcome to that one! since the inner workings of your brain are the same as mine...

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 07:53:22

Put Musketeers Rule The World into Youtube

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 07:54:15

Re your 2nd link with the birds LetUs - I love the last pic where they all scramble into action. Oh Aramis is in a panic there isn't he?

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 08:04:48

Just dancing round the kitchen to Cell Block Tango

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 08:05:50

Not one single song that anyone ever posts from YouTube can I see! You're all in fucking Prague aren't you JUST ADMIT IT. is Tom Burke not there BECAUSE YOU ARE ALL TOM BURKE IN PRAGUE IN HIS HOTEL ROOM!?

Anyway I have a drrrrrrrramatic spanner to throw into the works. We all know Capaldi has ruined this for me and Drink us by pissing off to his stupid time machine to go running after pretend robots <DELIBERATE AND HURTFUL WORDS TO YOU DOCTOR WHO> <smashes window on TARDIS> Anyway, don't you think that there's a chance they could have rewritten and filmed the end or at least altered it? There has been a fair old bit of time between Capaldi's casting, when they finished production AND the time between finishing production and Doctor Whatever starting.

Basically I'm worried they're going to covers Drink's ears with heaving bosom HURT HIM!! <looks away>

Alibabaandthe40nappies Thu 27-Mar-14 08:07:23

Morning wenches!

Oblmov I forgot to say well done on the payrise, good job!

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 08:10:51

He'll either run off but in a daring fashion, or he'll get pensioned off to Italy.

And how orange does Sean Pertwee look in the trailer?

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 08:11:15

Oh let's play another game. Putting pictures into sequence. Here are two pictures from my night last night. Put them into sequence and you'll get a sticker that says " I'm a Filthy Wench!"

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 08:16:44

Oh yay! Here's an idea..

Officially licensed BBC Musketeers create a scene Fuzzy Felt??

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 08:19:32

Morning wenches! On phone so suspect I can't see relevant posts. A day of school work and housework beckons. I also have to make a birthday cake. I am shit a baking. Going to be a fun day hmm

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 08:21:55

MAVIS! Make it a Musketeer cake. Put a smiley beardy face on it. Unless it's Athos then make it look tortured and soulless.

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 08:23:34

My cakes generally look tortured

<shares Queenie's cooking skills>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 08:23:58

I have an office move to do today, we don't have much do shouldn't be too stressful. Then I am off to the library to get my books for revision, that I have decided it us better to start post-Musketeers - but I need to be ready.

Right Wenches, enjoy the day and I hope that husbands recover, wenches get better, cakes get baked and done serious wenching occurs.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 08:24:24

LetUs - me too.

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 08:28:32

Malcolm - originally ds wanted a 'standing up darlek cake' but over the last six months I've talked him down to 'a chocolate smartie cake' <result>. Surely even I can't fuck that up? yes I can

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 08:29:41

Sorry - 'dalek' <call myself a Whovian??>

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 08:36:39

Mavis THIS!!!

Doctor Who cake heaven!

I have one or two items somewhere.

<stares at bulging cupboards with DW cake stuff spilling out>

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 08:39:06

Morning all!

Good luck with the cake making, DD2 wants a Minion from Despicable Me for her birthday, she's even found tutorials on YouTube for me so I don't fuck it up

One of my favourite bits from Sunday

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 08:39:59

I was going to get some of the Lakeland stuff for the 50th but figured that I'd still have to make something edible. Smartie cake it is. Heavy on the smarties.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 09:11:24

Making cakes is easy, it's keeping feral toddlers off them that's the trick.
I would like to say I don't use cake mix.

I can't watch the songs either. iPad people, ipad.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 09:26:39

Ohhhhhhhhh Fuck to Hell.

Just had to restart my laptop & it's fucking lost the many millions of windows I had open - all my fave links from about the last 1000 posts that I was flicking through every now & then to cheer myself up perve at.

<Slams laptop into the face of a Red Guard>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 09:28:45

Sparkle I am seriously considering using a memory stick to store them all on.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 09:35:33

Hmmmm. On Instagram (my new best friend) they are expressing concern at the lack of Burke in Prague. But some of them are asking if it is a deliberate ploy to keep us all wondering.....<cunning>

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 09:40:08

P.S. Anyone who can't access videos on iPads or wharves really needs to find another device to view the Rule The World vid on. There is some SERIOUS swagger at the end.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 09:40:30

WHATEVS not wharves!!!!

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 09:40:41

it says here that all FOUR of the Musketeers are returning for the 2nd series

He's either taking the pics, or it's a ploy to keep us all guessing.

It's been years since I read the book (and I know they're not following it closely), but I don't think Athos goes anywhere anytime soon

Alibabaandthe40nappies Thu 27-Mar-14 09:47:54

Mavis I have cakes to bake today too - one for DS2 for tomorrow, and one for my Mum for Saturday.

I made a Thomas the Tank Engine one for DS2's party at the weekend, so today's effort is just going to be a chocolate sponge - I may add smarties on the top, good idea.
Going to do Nigella's chocolate clementine cake for Mum I think, nothing in the way of decorating required except a dusting of icing sugar.

I am great at making cakes, they taste fabulous, but I am crap at decorating them, really crap grin

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 10:18:29
MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 10:26:42

Phew. Just done another run. God only knows how I managed 13 miles last year. I must have imagined it! I am enormous though since being turned out to cake and Prosecco grass all winter as it were. <sigh>

Right. I have an hour before I need to hi out again. Which one of the musketeers can I fit in, in that time? <ponders>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 10:28:43

Sparkle - that is brilliant. I never get tired of Dog running (and Aramis in general --don't want anyone to think my devotions are being diverted--)

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 10:30:38

LetUS was it you asking which episode to watch and MTM are you talking episode or actually 'do'?

If episode I would go back to the beginning or do commodities. Although really episode 9 is for you surely so you can see the Cardinal all angry and LUSTY EYES again.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 10:31:02

If it is a quick shag we are talking about, give Porthos a go.

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 10:32:38

Some good links this morning ladies, keep em coming.

Naturally I am sitting on my sofa rather than baking/cleaning/working so really should try and motivate myself.

Can't help thinking that there could be some good youtube clips to come once the entire series if up for grabs. Perhaps then we'll have less "fight me or die on your knees...." <bless Dog> <ruffles hair and scuffs up shiny new uniform>

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 10:33:49

Oh, and love the idea that we are all Tom Burke in a hotel room in Prague. It would be a bit of a Being John Malcovich/Doctor Who Master Race mash up!

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 10:34:54

Ever practical Anne, ever practical....<notes how Anne can make the distinction between episodes and RL>

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 10:36:53

I'm going to shag Porthos and watch LUSTY EYES at the same time.

Haha my iPad likes to write LUSTY EYES in capitals now.

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 10:41:42

Hello domestic goddess wenches.

This morning I will be mostly writing lists, as well as looking at all your excellent links and videos.

RE: athos - my latest theory is that he's joining them at bootcamp later due to "theatre commitments". (serious actor.)

Or he's too busy going through this list of bars

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 10:41:44

My shitepad (it even autocorrects ipad to shitepad now) likes to write anything I've forced it to accept in capitals, such as TREVILLE <---- there you go, my point exactly

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 10:46:33

I've managed to convince DH to take me to Prague as "I want to see the architecture". He also thinks they've removed gullible from the dictionary.

I wonder if I can convince him to go in the next few weeks - how long does all this filming malarky take?

Mornin Wenchies

Ah yes, the ever practical Anne. I was impressed and slightly aroused at Anne's organisational skills for last nights viewing. I think she did a marrrrvellous job of rallying the troops, and gracefully conceded defeat when it all turned to ratshit.
I fear, had that been me, I would've burst a few bloodd vessels, totally losing it at the sloppiness of the ranks not holding the line! grin

Malcolm - Well done you! That is very inspiring to me. I've been telling myself that as soon as this bug has gone I will get out there. Didn't have that excuse a couple of weeks ago though, and I too have been over indulging on the grassiest of banks.

There may well be a bit of hysteria going on here ref Tom Burke. We've only not seen him in a few pics. Not really cause for alarm. But then again, we are reliving our teens, so why not? Feck it lets start screaming outside his family home. Clinging to the security gates, crying our eyes out that the Musketeers are splitting up!

I am liking the MuskeAlbum. Have a few ideas brewing, will search out some links later. Shame some wenches can't see though. Can you not watch it at all?

oooh look Malcolm... he's got the nipple clamps out for you, as punishment for letting yourself go over Winter. Now get that sports bra off wench!

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 11:05:45

Oh Stinkle well done you for manipulating your dh in such a milady-esque way. I've been having fantasies of an easter break in prague too but not sure if a) we can afford it b) dp will buy it.

My understanding is that they do this boot camp thing for at least a week or so?? to hone their riding and thrusting skills, then filming takes ages probably. at least a month. Hope that helps. clearly it doesnt

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 11:07:11

WRT the whole missing Tom Burke thing...surely it's reasonable to expect that a series about the Musketeers would have Athos in it. As y'know, he's like, one of the main men?

But, yes, as Hannah suggests, we could make like teenagers and demand a help line.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 11:10:35

Hahaha oh Armand, please do punish me as you see fit!

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 11:15:12


MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 11:18:33

But is Richelieu and look what happened there!

<enjoying putting the heebie jeebies up Team Athos just because I'm feeling vindictive about losing Armand>

I think Athos is going. I bet he dies on Sunday. I bet they chop him up into teensy little bits and throw him around at one another laughing.

Athos is DEFINITELY GOING. Goodbye Athos.

<folds arms>
<slumps into chair>

Ha ha.

<foetal position>

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 11:20:16

Most YouTube is ok to watch, just not any if the ones you've posted today.hmm
I'm not watching on the PC.

What music are you actually into?

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 11:25:26

Richelieu will be sent away, or will remove himself for safety's sake when his plans go tits up.
Athos will not die unless, and I am really going out on a limb here, they fake it. They might do that to save Milady, which keeps their storyline tense.
It's all smokescreens and red herrings with the spoilers. I think Dog wants Milady alive as she knows where Constance is.

I think we should co-write the next series.

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 11:27:15

Madame Prague is very beautiful so I do want to go for that reason, it's just not the main reason grin

The links I haven't been able to view have been when I'm on my shitepad, I'm on the PC working at the moment and they're all fine

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 11:28:27

haha mtm Im also enjoying shit stirring team athos.

That above list was a list in chronological order of wenches that I annoyed / offended last night with my shambolic group-watch of episode 9. Sorry about that everyone. <offers place at back of King rota as peace offering.>

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 11:32:26

Athos is in the 3 Musketeers the whole way through, and 20 Years Later.

I know they're going a bit off piste, but not that off piste surely?

The coffin in this week's trailer and the absense of Tom Burke from the bootcamp pics is just a ploy to keep us guessing I reckon.

You can't have Musketeers without Athos, it's just not cricket

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 11:33:59

Also, I think both Constance and queenie will be upduffed. Constance may or may not lose hers, but could be wet nurse to queenie. In the book she is her servant or similar and is involved in her personal life, this is how Dog meets (her pretty much).

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 11:48:22

As lunchtime representative of Team Athos, I will not be riled by MTMs stirring. We are better than that.

They can't fake his death. That would be a bit Sherlock and would force people to compare the two. Then everyone would realise they were watching it for Hot Men in Leather as the plots, scripts etc etc leave a lot a little to be desired. The BBC would then think "it's not really all in the Reithian tradition old man, what, what??" and Bang! - there goes all hope of series three.

So no, they won't fake his death.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 11:59:11

Filming took 7-8months for Series 1 wenches. We are not the only dedicated ones, see? So pleeeeennnntttyyyyy of time for touring Prague.

I can only conclude that Tom hates the lot of them then. Either that or they're teasing us

Oh - and 5 miles run while I came to that conclusion.

Filming, as per posted yesterday, or day before, or day before (a day is a long time on a wench thread) begins on the 7th April.

They have arrived at Bootcamp as per all the photos in last couple of days.

Ergo, Bootcamp lasts about 2 weeks.

Filming on the other hand would take months and months, not one! This is verrrrrry good though. It gives us plenty of time to arrange delude ourselves a trip.

PLUS: If when we do get our invite from Adrian Hodges, the director, wink <knows stuff> (we're like this <pinky squeeze>), it would more than likely be towards end of filming. So plenty of time to tighten up those vadges bodies, and shop for corsets.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 12:00:53

Do we reckon it's going to be shown at the same time next year? I have to say it would be good to have it then again, it'll be like Christmas has come twice

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 12:01:35

Big x-post Hannah!

<high five>


Go and wash your mouth out! There is nothing wrong with the plot/script etc.

It is superb. I completely get the whole concept they were going for. It is what it is. It is not comparable to anything else. I love it. Favourite show like this. Ever.

<distances self from Mavis, knowing she won't be getting an invite with that carry on>

Now stop ruining things for the rest of us!

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 12:05:11

I think we should aim lateish for the road trip. They might be a bit fed up of each other's company round that campfire by then & we could wow them with our sparkling wit & class. Plus Tom might have turned up.

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 12:06:37

7 - 8 months? WTF are they actually doing? clearly I have no idea of the filming process

I was hoping they wouldn't make us wait that long, but I guess if they start filming on the 7th April, 7-8 months takes it to December, bit of fannying around with the editing and what-not, then it will take it until January.

Film it quicker people!!!

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 12:08:33

I concede that the last couple of episodes have been loads better in the plot/script department - and anyway, I'm not complaining, I'm clearly here for the Hot Men in Leather so have hardly a leg to stand on.

I'm merely observing what might happen outside the wenchiverse <like that exists>

You need me Hannah. Don't forget. We have Gretna.

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 12:08:53

SleazyJet are quite cheap to Prague if we aim for September

Have to be quick though, everyone seems to want to go to Prague in September hmm

<high five back>

I completely agree Sparkle. Gives us all plenty of time for prep.

Tom might have other commitments at home, or work. I think he is quiet/serious as an actor rather than luvvie or up his own arse.

I could also imagine him being slightly less of a tart in front of the camera off screen.

Jury is still out on his sexuality though due to lack of online info. Then again we can't find Howard's d.o.b, but I'm pretty sure he has one?

Up until this series, none of them were big household names. Not mainstream anyway. I'm sure the amount of personal info will ramp up hugely now.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 12:17:14

Well I have noted that Howie's Instagram seems to only have been set up a couple of weeks ago either by Luke or a musketeers PR person no doubt

Lord help us if they decide to do one for Santiago. The internet will break.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 12:18:58

Madame - I forgave you last night sort of. Don't diss the script again ok as I might not be do tolerant and Dog has been teaching me swordsmanship and Aramis the shooting of the musket.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 12:19:48

The Internet will break - brilliant.

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 12:24:50

oh, I wonder what they're discussing there

Typical bloke "it's this big" <hands far apart>
Woman "no, it's more like this big" <hands much closer together>

Stinkle, sit down luv, I'm going to break it to you gently.....

You know what we see on t.v, yeah? Well that isn't actually how it all is. You see all those beautiful settings and exquisite interiors, yeah? Well they aren't all actually one big palace on the outskirts of Musketeer town, on the outskirts of the woods.

It is filmed in about a bazillion different locations. Just one scene, may be filmed in several different places. The Palace stuff alone is made up of about 50 different castles/buildings/grounds.

So imagine having to achieve continuity whilst filming in a million different locations. It takes tiiiiiiiiiiiime. And then there is getting each scene perfect with lighting, weather, etc etc. Not to mention how many times the director has to shout cut because Santabarbara is too busy making eyes at the extras, and misses his lines <expert in filming>

But it is all good. The longer the better imho. Even though I am sizzling hot wenchy material, I could do with a few hundred runs and a chance to hone my inner sex goddess before meeting them. 7-8 months is achievable.

Look at THIS for some idea of locations. Beautiful, beautiful stuff. The rooms in Strahov Monastery are stunning.

I would love to visit Prague now just to see all of this, and because of the utterly breathtaking countryside.

Not just for the leather opportunities. So you see, all this perving is actually doing favours for tourism over there.

Oh and can I just say............

When I win the lotto - I am taking you ALL, to Doskany/Prague. We will go for a week (this can be increased). I will pay for flights, accommodation, a modest spending allowance, and travel to and from the casts location.

All you have to do, is arrange time away from dcs and work/home.

If anyone still can't make it, then you are not fit to call yourself a wench and you will be stripped of your (blue) pauldron immediately.

So I suggest you all start working on your stories/plans henceforth! <PA>

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 12:47:25

Thanks Anne. Better keep my suggestion for a new game (Good Line Bad Line) to myself then?

<quietly erects musketball barrier using furniture from the refectory.>

summerscoop Thu 27-Mar-14 13:05:02

<sneaks in whispers>

you don't think they are going to leave Athos on some sort of cliff hanger do you? That's why his not been pictured?
also i finished the book last night how close do you think it will be to the ending?


QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 13:08:29

If the last nine episodes are anything to go by, not at all or very minimally. The books are very Dog focused aren't they.

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 13:14:14

Agree with anne. The story lines and many characters in the series barely resemble the book at all, which is all good imo. Not that I don't love the book, it's just courses for horses.

Not to give away anything about the book ending cos people are still reading it, I REALLY hope the series doesn't follow it. Didn't like book ending at all.

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 13:19:10

Horses for courses. Jesus. Can't blame that on the shitepad.

SummerScoop Thu 27-Mar-14 13:21:04

Good, i wasn't a huge fan of the ending either. Can't see them following it too closely.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 13:23:31

Oh nooooo, I don't like the sound of the book ending at ALL sad

Hannah thank you soooo much. May I be the first to say that I will drop my family like a stone be verrrrry pleased to accept your offer when you win the lottery.

Adrian Hodges needs to make it unnecessary though.

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 13:36:58

Ar'ternoon wenches. Well, I thought id made it quite clear that you were to find Athos this morning. So where is he, hmmm, hmmmm? <eyeballs>.

Sparke - did you say you thought it might be theatre commitments? This sounds right to me. Let's search all the theatres in the world. Quick! I need someone to get onto this this afternoon cos I've got a long list this pm. What are the action nuns up to? Are any of them any good on the old inter web?

I don't think it'll be the same as the book ending, this is very much an adaptation virtually no diamonds, no Buckingham etc so I'm sure Adrian (First name terms) will have been sympathetic yet original.

Hannah thanks for the invite. I'm in. I just need to renew my passport and lose 2 stone. It's do-able.

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 13:57:54

I reckon they had to cut all the storylines related to England from the show cos of accent problems. Yknow....
<Porthos meeting the duke of Buckingham.>
"Allo duke."
"What ho sir. My, you speak remarkably good English for a French bloke. In fact you seem to be from south london."
"And you talk facking good French my lord."

Santiago could just have done voice-over for the lot of them. <Sigh> In his many dialects.

<goes off to find the Chile environment clip again>

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 14:05:52

Ah yes Hannah - I'm on for your lotto funded trip. September you say? Start of term? I'll just dump a load of resources...the children will be fiiiinnnee own children clearly safe with family members. I'll do a Skype chat from the Prague Marriott. It'll be educational. hmm

I'm wondering about Rochefort.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 14:15:38

Hannah - I'll do the itineraries and make sure everyone has the relevant paperwork etc. I'll tell DH I am learning Czech or doing research for my dissertation.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 14:17:11

Although German dude sent to the Bastille put on his crap German accent - I said this during one of the rematches, what was the point given that no one else had bothered?

You know though, I am now listening closely to Santiago and whilst he has no distinguishable accent I am picking up a twang now on certain words.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 14:18:54
MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 14:21:29

I've decided that Santiago, although not having an accent, has that 'perfect accent it must be a second/third/forth language' type of thing going on <technical> Do you know what I mean?? The 'not only can I speak many languages but I know exactly what each one should sound like'.

I know, I know, I'm rambling <but look, I'm taking an interest in Aramis!>

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 14:40:34

I can't tell you the fun I've just had on Tumblr. Included in the pics I haven't linked to are Porthos with Joan Collins & Mr Burke wearing fishnets (it's an unfortunate angle).

Oblomov Thu 27-Mar-14 14:42:48

Fishnets ????!!!!

Oblomov Thu 27-Mar-14 14:44:51

All confused. Com

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 14:47:17

oblomov I think the one with Bonaire is an old one, the others are newer.
I am really really not worried that Athos isn't there, or is there but not in the photos.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 14:48:46

Ah Sparkle more Santiago in Vronsky mode... do you think I need to actually post the DVD on DH FB page and go 'oh look doesnt this look good' to get it as a gift.

Yes, he does have that perfect accent. I speak languages like that too.. in that I sound very native with limited vocabulary.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 14:49:20

The point of what i just said is we are made for each other.

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 14:53:31

Of course you are Anne <nods sagely> of course you are..

Actually I'm very envy of those of you who can speak more than one language. I'd love to be able to speak Italian and I reckon if I devoted the same amount of time to it as I do to MN then I probably could.

Never going to happen.

Can I help with child care costs?
Oh ffs! I just knew that somebody would start taking fackin' liberties <Catherine Tate nan>

Well, I suppose it depends on size of win really doesn't it. Otherwise, I will accept a brief pm in way of application for grant, stating why you need extra help. I understand for some, getting family to help/cover loss of earnings for said family member, may be an issue. Details will be provided nearer the time.
If I win the mother load, I will stump it up no questions asked.

Hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah haaaa! <clutches sides>

Sorry - couldn't resist! Fuck me, I'm funny...

Hahahahahahahahahah <mad laughter until end of time..>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 14:59:36

Personally his language skills are not that impressive since they are all latin languages and easy to learn once you have one, particularly Spanish and Italian. It is the accents etc that people usually find harder to master.

Disclaimer: My actual language skills are limited to English and a very non-useful and unromantic periphery European language. FRench/Spanish and Italian sadly have fallen by the wayside.

Mmm that second muff photo down of Santabarbara - very nice. Devilish smile. V handsome.

You would definitely have your hands full with that one Anne, in more than just the physical sense.

I have noticed many an accent crop up. We've got Irish, Scottish, Northern English, Saaaath lundun.

Details, details, details. <dismissive wave of hand>

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 15:19:21

Santiago has got a Chilean accent I'm sure. Though it might be mixed up a bit with Madrid accent cos I think he lived there for a while when young.

Agree once you can speak Spanish you can get by in Italian etc, and vice versa. it's like two for the price of one.

But has anyone noticed that he also has an American accent when talking English, depending on what country he's currently working in?

This flagrant disregard for having one accent is kind of weird and almost offputting. His voice evolves too, like his appearance. I'm becoming suspicious about his perfectness. HE'S A CYBORG.

(Not really. I still loooooove him.)

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:21:51

Yes, I saw an interview about some kind of police drama where he had a sort of San Francisco twang. I guess he is used to adapting to his surroundings.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 15:32:23

Obviously I was assuming you were intending to win BIG, otherwise wouldn't have asked.
Some actors keep speaking in the accent they're working with don't they, maybe he does that?
Lol cyborg. Yup, which begs the question; where can I get one and does it do housework/cook naked

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 15:34:19

<debates whether to do cunning linguist joke again. Thinks better of it.>

That's what happens when you move about and are bilingual I guess. His versatility certainly is impressive. Unlike Pete, who can basically only do one accent. <runs and hides from malc>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:35:50

The more I watch him in interviews the more attractive Luke becomes. Santiago reminds me a bit of this amazingly beautiful guy I met once, he was stunning, like people would stop and stare at him. I went on one date with him and he was the single most boring person I have ever met in my entire life ever. However, he was also not an actor but an accountant so Santiago if you are reading this I am not implying that you are boring.... I am not, I would still go out with you.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 15:35:55

I'm going to speak nothing but Spanish to him in Prague & you lot won't have a clue`

He prob won't either, as my Spanish tends to turn into French half way through each sentence.

Oh & Anne - as you're here I saved this especially for you following our Me. You. Him & Him arrangement

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 15:37:11

I always wondered if that was the cast re French, Spanish, Italian anne.
I might see if I can restart French, it's a skill innit?

I have decided I want to learn typing and other related skills. Don't suppose any of you know how to go about that, preferably online and free not too expensive? I've looked around where I live and nowt happening.
<arse end of nowhere>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:38:17

Aw Sparkle... I feel we are connected forever.

Why is he so miserable in the middle one though. But the smiles from them both and Luke just does not stop talking does he. He and I are going to talk each others under garments off.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 15:38:52

What interviews anne?

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:41:49

Twit.... YouTube is your friend for languages and there is a website, I forget its name but I will look it up - it might be Babla or something and basically you do exercises etc and someone with native language skills marks it for you and you mark people trying to learn English. And I sometimes buy French newspapers and just read aloud to myself... I can't understand the articles really anymore but it helps to develop the accent etc.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:42:31
QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:44:02

I can't remember but he was talking about playing a cop or something and it was distinctly American.

You do need a personality to maintain interest though or at least some skill. I'm not sure how kindly he would take to me suggesting he be Vronsky tonight and Aramis tomorrow night.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 15:45:16

Oh I don't know how you learn typing... there are programmes online where you can practice speed etc. I can type fast due to the nature of wok that I do, but I have never needed to touch type in the traditional sense.

My stepdad is Greek, so in theory I could ask him to teach me Greek (or Turkish) but I don't want to.

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 15:55:06

I taught myself to type by just doing loads of it. Helpful for posting and watching tv at the same time.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 16:02:20

From my forays into the world of Social Media I can conclude that it's not just series 2 bootcamp pics Tom is missing from, but any sort of pic at all other than ones he is contractually obliged to be in i.e. press appearances.

From this I ascertain that Athos was just a figment of our collective & very overactive imaginations.

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 16:16:05

there are a few boot camp ones here from series 1 He's in some of them, but they look like they're BBC ones.

There's nothing else apart from proper official ones, the odd film premiere but no falling out of night clubs, no punching photographers - nada. The ones he is in he he doesn't look exactly thrilled about it. I don't like having my photo taken either though, I'm usually caught gurning or something

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 16:32:06

Apparently Athos reads the Musketeer Daily Mail. He believes all the stories in it too. Because he writes them

<evil laugh>

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 16:33:16

I am getting irrationally annoyed at being included in a Whatsapp group of DH family where they don't fucking stop talking shit. More so though because I ask him simply what time is he coming home and he won't bother to respond and has not replied to me at all today, however is having some huge conversation with them all.

I can't actually stop looking at that Tumblr picture of Santiago and Luke. It is cheering me up and I love them both.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 16:36:01

Imagine if you text Aramis? He would answer straight away and tell you he was coming home as soon as he could be because all he could thing about was giving you the most orgasmic evening of passion you've ever had in his life.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 16:36:53

I wonder if my fantasy men have given me unrealistic expectations of him, or if he genuinely is a bit of an idiot a lot of the time.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 16:38:08

I bet he is a great lover.... shiney chin alert when he comes here on Sunday.

<assesses body for damage. Gives him a good once over and a drop of wine. Buffs him up. He's fine, just fine: all in working order>

Listen I'm saving lives all over the feckin shop here. How am I meant to go home and get tea cooked?

Ooh yeah good one Anne. I did see a wench this morning, and I have to confess to trying to completely invent a RL scenario just so that I could post on thread including Spaniels fingers. Which is why I need to clarify the term.

I would defo be up for a bit of

1st wench: spaniel

2nd wench: fingers

Stinklebell Thu 27-Mar-14 17:03:29

Trouble with "spaniel fingers" is that it's a bit, well, specialist.

I should think the only reasonable place we could shoehorn it into a thread is in the dog section.

I have a spaniel, and I have fingers, but they're not really related in any way so it could be difficult to post it on a thread in AIBU for example

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 17:05:27

Now then. Any of you who feel like a bit of fan fic have alook at BBC-musketeers live journal. Can't link <old>. , < incompetent>....

I can tell you there's some stuff on there that would make MTM and Hannah blush. O yes siree.

Still no feckin sign of Mr Burke. Cant one of you.younglings tweet Dog or Howie and get them to photobomb him or whatever the youth do now??

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 17:08:44


Let's think of some better words then.



Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 17:10:03



Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 17:11:02



Which is why Anne's 'break it down' <street> idea is perfect.

My example was this.....

Reading a thread about what daft thing have you done this week. Saw Drink on there "marking place" and was itching, absofuckinglutely itching to pop up and say spaniels fingers.
Didn't think it would be appropriate, so instead wracked my brain trying to remember an instance to use, where I could cram the words in.

Instead I invented a whole story about how I cut my finger last night (true), dropped something (false) and slammed finger in drawer (false)..... all of which we're building up to my departure comment of...

Doh! Spaniels fingers! <eye roll>
(like butter fingers, but spaniels)


Ran out of time finished poo before could type. Then forgot.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 17:12:28

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 17:18:54

Sorry Oblomov, I'm just feeling a bit sensitive today because Sunday is drawing closer.


This would be on repeat in my music to shag Athos to Album. But really, it would suit any of them.

Imagine rocking up to the empty nuns convent of last week, on your horse, weak and exhausted from your journey.... in a Beauty & the Beast type scenario, but where the heroic/evil chosen one, would keep you in a constant, and intense, deep state of desire...

...obvs with MASSES and MASSES of banging and licking and sweaty, thrusty clinches.

You have to turn it up full blast, and ignore the video.... although Lindsey (lead singer) does sport a white billowy shirt, so not all bad....

Take me now Athos and give me your BIG FAT ANGRY WEAPON Uh, oh, Uh, oh, Uh, oh

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 17:29:23

The point of the password is that it is daft... otherwise we might as well just <wave> and no one will know where we are from anyway.

The fucking password stays and each wench takes a word. Deal with it.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 17:29:53

I must admit to having a little laugh to myself when I saw that fans-with-Aramis pic & compared it to what our shot would look like.

Aramis would be smouldering at the camera, everyone else would just be staring at Aramis. Or maybe trying to sneak in a stroke. All the time trying to look cool & nonchalant.

It would be seven shades of shit.

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 17:30:28

MTM sorry really can't link as my phone is having somekind of freezing issue brought on by too much musketeers perving etc. You'll find it easily. They are rude girls I tell you. I came all over Athos a bit Mary Whitehouse for a moment...

Oi! Yeah Comtess.... I just scrolled back and realised there is no mention of where.

Stop teasing!

Copy and paste the address bar of said site.

I KNEW it was because
i) end of series
ii) end of Cardinal

I was walking from kitchen reading this on my phone. Read the last few posts, mind boggling, when dd starts shout SPECIFIC RIM. SPECIFIC RIM.....which I'm hearing as specifically rimming......

"Before he could say anything further, Porthos had pulled him up and kissed him, licking deliberately into his mouth and dragging him half into his lap. D’Artagnan kissed back instinctively, and it didn't hurt that his now rigid cock was rubbing against Porthos' thigh."

Well and doubt that our threads were a little too saucy have now well and truly evaporated!

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 17:51:44

Thanks Sparkle, I was trying but failing Hannah. Sorry, if I'm not at the pc it all goes to shit. Agree whole heartedly that Adrian will think we are deffo the safer bet. He'll probably offer us some walk on parts.

Interesting to see some people have really invested some time on this. Dedication. Ooh dedication. <insert Roy Castle stylee trumpet solo> . It makes my whole Athos, Aramis threeway look very pedestrian...

Off to look at Dog holding a baby again.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 17:55:18

Why aren't there any stories about how they are hot for wenches? Like oh I dunno...Richelieu demands his favourite wench pleasures herself for his entertainment...or something?!? Stupid internet!

I haven't even looked at anything past homepage yet, but I'm guessing from your posts we are talking a gay fan site?

Bloody gays!

I told you.

They are sooooooooo not coming on the Coach trip now. Can't risk it. We wouldn't get a flippin look in. Dirty bastards grin

Do you think Dog speaks Italian?

I'm sure I've glanced some Cardinal + wench + confessional type stuff on Tumblr. I usually just skim past it. If I find some, I'll link to it.

Not sure what episode to go for tonight. Decisions, decisions.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 18:41:14

There's actually nothing there that we didn't already know.

I don't think.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 18:42:40

Aramis nose is too pointy! Athos's is definitely better.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 18:43:17

I would say it pretty clear which 4 as two are not that big a deal and I have seen the spoiler picture for one of them. I will be delighted to see Aramis is the emotional state that I like (there are two so hopefully keeping it alive for those not looking).

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 18:44:01

MTM - have a biscuit

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 18:44:40

I think Anne, we might not be friends after Sunday!

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 18:48:42

Can anything be better than LUSTY EYES though I wonder?

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 18:52:34

We can be friends just stop picking holes in Aramis. I have never said a bad word about Armand - ever!!

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 18:59:23

I've always been so nice too Anne. <sniff wibble sniff>

Perhaps the musketeers could teach Richelieu how to walk properly in his boots. In the episode where he's strolling through the gardens with Treville, he can't walk properly in his boots. I've never liked to mention it before grin

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 19:06:54

Oh come on. These boys are so hot of course they would give each other the raging horn! Ok, perhaps they'd keep it to theirselves. And their blogs...

As for the Doctor. I have NEVER fancied him before biggest lie ever so this could well be my first time! it so isn't

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 19:07:32

I think mine is between Commodities or Knight Takes Queen.

I know which 4 of those scenarios my money's on.

Oh & MTM - mess with one of Team A & you mess with us all. Just sayin'

Bonaceiux (?) & Richelieu scenes won't happen.

Think Richelieu will leg it rather than have to face any consequences/admit to any involvement.

Episode 1 - the bucket, swagger hat doff down street walk, need I go on.

Episode 9

All of them.

I fucking love it. LOVE IT!

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 19:33:20

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 19:33:40

I think Richelieu will go out with a bang.

But not the sort MTM wants.

Bonacieux is a non-starter.

Treville? Surely not.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 19:36:07

MadamedeChevreuse Thu 27-Mar-14 20:05:18

Oh god. <flicks through copy of How to Win Friends and Influence People>

malc it's just that I thought ninon was annoying and I didn't like the confusion over whether it was an athos-romantic episode or an aramis-romantic episode. And I really really didn't understand why aramis would have given ninon his gift from queenie, after giving her the stare and everything the week before.

Why, were there some good cardinal bits in it? I cant remember those. Do remind me.

Anne isn't around is she??? <scared> she has forbidden me from critiquing the plot.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Thu 27-Mar-14 20:09:18

No everyone needs to fancy Cardinal but his PC's talents cannot be disputed!

<looks smug>

See, Drink knows where it's at!

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 20:30:04

1. Friends and Enemies - loved it half nekkid Aramis
2. Sleight of Hand - Aramis protecting Queenie and giving her The Stare. Dog being fighty. Rain = wet musketeers
3. Commodities - Bonnaire was great. Billowy shirts. Drunk Athos flinging doors open
4. The Good Soldier - extra fighty Aramis. Cross Aramis. More rain = wet musketeers again
5. The Homecoming - CSI Musketeers, flirty Porthos, Athos taking his hood down.
6. The Exiles - stroppy king, top snark from Athos, Aramis, Constance sword fighting, Aramis holding a baby
7. A Rebellious Woman - Athos flirting, the fighting with books, that scene at the end between Dog and Constance <sigh>
8. The Challenge - church scene between Aramis and Porthos, fighting, grey shirt, me screaming at the telly for dog to look at Constance when she was finishing with him ^because she was crying you numpty"
9. Knight Takes Queen - practically everything.

And Cardinal being wonderfully, schemingly evil in everything.

Still can't choose.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 20:32:34

You see what you made me do, you see?! I have work to do!


Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 20:36:58

wtf I don't remember the homecoming one shock

Richelieu is my favourite character, PC does a fantastic job with him.

He still resembles an insect, which us good, emotionless,driven by instinct to survive etc etc.
And I still wouldn't.

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 20:37:34

Fabulous summary there LetUsPrey. I would add: I really like the bit in Commodities where they do the 'prepare the patient' and Athos punches him. Mostly cos of how he says 'we've learnt from experience' .

Other key scene I really like is the bit where Richelieu does the deal with Ninon for her life and how he refers to the convenient corpse. Superb.

Ooh, and in the challenge I love the bits where they're practising for it, Aramis and the not looking shot, Porthos throwing the other chappie, Athos baiting Dog to improve his swordsmanship (fnar).

Love iPlayer.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 20:38:07

OMG Let Us thanks for your re-cap. It has made no difference, though, I just can't choose I FUCKING LOVE THEM ALL.

I massively apologise. Really liked the whole evil papal envoy bit of ep 7, and when Cardinal sent him back to Rome in a little wooden box. And the sex face obviously. Just that that whole storyline seems to have temporarily attached itself to some other episode in my head.

Sorry. It's just that if aramis isn't in a scene I sometimes drift off a bit.

Muscles? Er, miracles Arf.

Yes, I might whisper it and squeeeeeee a bit.

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 20:40:56

I am always here!

Episode 1 and Commodities which is 3 I think are my favourites, Commodities is just so funny and Aramis does his whip thing, followed closely by which ever one has Connie and Dog throwing weapons around. Then episode nine and them Aramis and baby.

Ok Madame you're free to go.

Is this one of those occasions when 'Never Google..../click on.....' should run through our minds?
and we never listen

LaComtessdelafere Thu 27-Mar-14 20:42:49

And purely Athos bits, love the ice bucket, the orig sex face bit, the duty and pleasure, the do it, dooo it bit, the I'll pretend I didn't hear that bit, the Milady snog, the Gallagher snark, all the Convent bits esp the roll and the'they'll hang you'. I'm a tragic fool. But a happy one. Roll on the DVD.

Ok own up, which one of you wrote in that blog about sitting on Tom Burke's face?

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 20:43:52

I think letusprey's breakdown is pretty accurate.

MavisGrind Thu 27-Mar-14 20:43:54

Love the way this episode (9) is shot. The nun raising the axe on the convent roof reminds me of something but can't remember what.

Also, and sounding really poncy I have liked the sound across the whole series. Peter Capaldi gives good echo!

LetUsPrey Thu 27-Mar-14 20:44:12

Oh yes the whipping noise by Aramis <big sigh>

I will be simultaneously squeeeeeing and saying one for all when they say it on Sunday

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 20:45:11

[Grin] oh it's ace!

I bet this was Drink

"Peter Capaldi is so sexy! I want him as Samuel Kent in The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher. i have a thing about Victorian men- I want him in my bed in his night shirt, and I pull it up so I can stroke his beautiful arse."

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 20:46:26

Yes, they have clearly spent the budget making it look and sound amazing, so had to get some bloke from the pub to write the script for a pint and some pickled eggs.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 27-Mar-14 20:46:56

Oh please wenches read that link, it's actually hilarious!

Mavis the nun on the roof with axe reminds me of Morher India for some reason.

Sparklegeek Thu 27-Mar-14 20:48:52

You're going a bit off-piste there MTM.

Although LT sounds like he should be a Musketeer in name alone

QueenAnneofAustria Thu 27-Mar-14 20:50:25

I too wonder why nobody wants to sit on Rupert Penry-Jones's posh face.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 20:50:47

Ugh no. No no no.
I'd do PC before I did him. envy <-- boak face.

Love that Mavis felt compelled to add grin to that otherwise heartless msg.

Drink, your passion never fails to arouse me. I sometimes feel that a five way between Malcolm, Anne, Me, You and the Comtess, could get very, very, passionate angry.

Btw - it's not that I don't want the rest of you. Just that you don't necessarily fit into this particular unstable volatile scenario.

Mavis for instance, would barely be bothered to glance over us. We'd probably be doing it all wrong. And she wouldn't want to click on anything. <prude>

But there is something massively enticing to me about Malcolm's constant state of aggressive arousal, and Drink's borderline hostility towards all wenches. Diluted only by the occasional shed tear when she's on the prosecco tired.

Not sure what that says about me?

Sorry been typing that for aaaaaages! We're prob on different thread by now.

Twit Thu 27-Mar-14 20:52:21

anne we're too busy slapping it.

I feel like I recognise RPJ from RL in my childhood. 'Tis weird.
