Sharpe eyes

A friend said the series is similar to Horatio Hornblower... so I've given it a chance. After all, Sean Bean is no push over. "Sharpe's Challenge" and "Sharpe's Peril" will be aired for encore viewing for fans all across the world.

Sharpe is a British series about Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean), a soldier during the Napoleonic Wars as he climbs the ladder and carves his name in history. Quite a few recognizable faces throughout the series: Sir Arthur Wellesley (David Troughton and later Hugh Frasier), Major Hogan (Brian Cox) and Obadiah Hakeswill (Pete Postlethwaite).
