It would seem that even with a TARDIS at his disposal these days Peter Capaldi cant manage to be in two places at once. Alas, this means an end to his involvement in The Musketeers as the villainous Cardinal.
Naturally this leaves a burning question to fans of the show, how will they write out the cardinal? Fellow members of the cast have their own ideas about it as Tom Burke AKA Athos told the Radio Times recently:
Come the next series the Cardinal will be dead. He’ll just be gone. We’re all like, ‘Where’s the Cardinal? Oh he’s dead’.
Capaldi’s replacement as nemesis on the show is already in place in the form of Marc Warren as Rochefort.
Could this mean a longer than previously rumoured single series run for Capaldi as the Doctor, if he is willing to be killed off in a rather successful show like Musketeers one would assume he has so long(ish) term job security for the future. Could we have Capaldi still making a comeback in series three of the show, should it happen? What are your thoughts, will the loss have an effect on the viewing figures? Can you really have a Musketeers show without the diabolical Cardinal? Drop us a message below and let us know your feelings on the matter.
