Last week it was announced that The Musketeers will definitely be returning to BBC One for a second season, but unfortunately, they will do so without Peter Capaldi as Cardinal Richelieu, who will be focusing on his Doctor Who commitments. Co-star Luke Pasqualino doesn't blame the 12th Doctor, though. "I'm sure he was made an offer he couldn't refuse and all of us respect that," Pasqualino (pictured below), who plays the role of D'Artagnan, told Digital Spy. "He was an amazing asset to this show, he is a very generous and lovely man and I wish him every success for the future. We understand it's business."

The actor is convinced that Capaldi will do great as the Doctor, just like he did as Richelieu: "He is one of the greatest character actors of our time - there is no reason why he won't be amazing." But aside from the disappointment that his co-star had to leave, Pasqualino is mainly just very excited about the news that The Musketeers will be renewed for a second series, with production already starting in six weeks from now. "[The renewal news] has been highly anticipated for a little while," he said. "We have been sitting with our fingers and toes crossed... and to get the news a week ago was great." Whereas we'll have to wait a long time before we'll be able to see Capaldi take on his role in Doctor Who, The Musketeers will be returning to BBC One next week Sunday, on February 23rd at 9 PM GMT.
