BBC’s Musketeers adaptation slammed for lack of dog characters


NEW BBC series The Musketeers has been condemned for portraying Alexandre Dumas’s characters as human rather than canine.

Viewer Roy Hobbs said: “When I heard the BBC was doing a big-budget live action adaptation of this classic tale of hound courage, I was like ‘wow, real dogs in leatherwear having sword fights’.

“But they’re fucking people! Even the character of Milady de Winter is portrayed by an actual lady rather than a sexy cat.

“Dumas must be turning in his grave to see his original novel of brave anthropomorphic animals defiled in this way. I just hope the BBC keeps its meddling hands off Cities of Gold.”
