Movie Review – ‘The Three Musketeers’ (1993)

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

I’ve recently seen the 1993 film adaptation of ‘The Three Musketeers’ on Disney+, based on the 1844 novel by Alexandre Dumas.

But of course, a lot has happened since then as Paul has done plenty of Big Finish audios and did ‘The Night of the Doctor’. 🙂 Continue reading
