At a book signing in Bath on October 11, 2006, Bernard Cornwell revealed that there were plans by ITV to film two more episodes. Filming was supposed to start in April, but was postponed due to the resignation of ITV's chief executive, at which point production was pushed back to September. However, Sean Bean was unavailable due to other commitments, so production has been postponed once more. When asked about the stories, Cornwell said that he believed that they were producing two new stories specially for television.

Plot summary

At the beginning of the series, Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean) is a sergeant in the British 95th Rifles serving in Portugal in 1809. When he singlehandedly saves the life of General Sir Arthur Wellesley (David Troughton in the first two films, then Hugh Fraser) from a group of French cavalrymen, Wellesley gives Sharpe a battlefield commission, promoting him to lieutenant. Sharpe is placed in charge of a detachment of the 95th Rifles - a group of elite riflemen ("chosen men"), among them Sergeant Patrick Harper (Daragh O'Malley), who eventually becomes his best friend.

Wellesley and his various spymasters, first Major Michael Hogan (Brian Cox), followed by Major Nairn (Michael Byrne), Major Mungo Monroe (Hugh Ross) and later Major General Ross (James Laurenson), find Sharpe to be an extremely capable and cunning officer and give him progressively more important tasks. Despite their backing, he has to fight against the strong prejudice of aristocrats (who often owe their army positions to money and social connections rather than military skill) against an uncouth commoner raised from the ranks. He makes a number of dangerous enemies, such as French Major Pierre Ducos (Féodor Atkine) and Colonel Sir Henry Simmerson (Michael Cochrane), and encounters one from his prior service in India, Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill (Pete Postlethwaite). However, Sharpe's successes gain him steady promotion. By the end of the Napoleonic Wars, at the Battle of Waterloo, he is Lieutenant-Colonel Sharpe. This article is about the actor. ...

Casting

Initially, Paul McGann was cast in the title role; however, two days into filming of the first episode, McGann injured his knee playing football and was forced to withdraw. By the time production was ready to start again, Sean Bean became available and took on the role. Paul McGann (born November 14, 1959 in Liverpool) is an English actor who made his name on the BBC serial The Monocled Mutineer, in which he played the lead role. ...

Author Bernard Cornwell was rumoured to have been unimpressed by the casting of Bean in the role, possibly due to obvious discrepancies from his novels, as detailed below. Bean's performances however, so impressed Cornwell that he dedicated one of the novels, Sharpe's Battle, "to Sean Bean".


Discrepancies

There are some differences between the series and the novels. For instance, in the books, Sharpe was born in Wapping in London and has dark hair. Sean Bean is blond and, being from Sheffield, he speaks with a pronounced Sheffield accent, albeit Sharpe is revealed to be born in Keighley in Sharpe's Justice. In the books, the issue of Sharpe's northern accent and roots is addressed by having him flee from London to Yorkshire when he is a teenager to avoid vengeance for a murder that he had committed. Wapping Old Stairs, one of many points of access to the foreshore in the area. ... This article is about the capital of England and the United Kingdom. ... Young man with naturally blond hair. ...

Keighley (pronounced Keith-ly or ) is a town and civil parish in the county of West Yorkshire, England, northwest of Bradford, on the meeting point of the River Aire and the River Worth. ... Sharpes Justice is a British television drama, part of a series that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a British soldier during the Napoleonic Wars. ...


In the first TV episode, Sharpe is a sergeant in the 95th Rifles in Portugal when he saves Wellesley's life. In the books, this occurs in India during the Battle of Assaye, while he is serving in the 33rd Foot. For other uses, see Sergeant (disambiguation). ...

In the most recent episode, Sharpe's Challenge, Sharpe states that his latest lover, Lucille, has died, something never mentioned in the books. It should also be noted that the characters of Sergeant Bickerstaff and General William Dodd are killed off in this programme. Sharpe's Challenge is a composite of the three prequels that are set in India, creating a number of inconsistencies, since the TV version is set after the events at Waterloo. Bickerstaff's counterpart in the books is Hakeswill, who is killed off in Sharpe's Enemy, which is why the rivalry between Sharpe and Bickerstaff is a little forced. Sharpes Challenge is a British television drama, part of a series that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a former British soldier who undertakes one last mission for his former commander, the Duke of Wellington. ... Sharpes Enemy is a British television drama, part of a series that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a British soldier during the Napoleonic Wars. ...


This is made all the more confusing by the fact that the actor playing Bickerstaff, Peter-Hugo Daly, had previously played Sergeant Rodd in Sharpe's Gold, another unruly sergeant who takes a dislike to Sharpe. However, this has happened in the past. Julian Fellowes played Major Warren Dunnett in Sharpe's Rifles and also the Prince Regent in Sharpe's Regiment. Tony Haygarth played "Marshal" Pot-au-Feu in Sharpe's Enemy and Sir Willoughby Parfitt in Sharpe's Justice. Peter-Hugo Daly (also known as Peter Hugo Daly) is an actor and drummer, who appeared (playing drummer Mick Lethal) in the film Breaking Glass with Hazel OConnor. ... Sharpes Gold is a 1995 British television drama, part of a series screened on the ITV network that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a British soldier during the Napoleonic Wars. ... Fellowes as Lord Kilwillie Julian Fellowes (born August 17, 1949 in Egypt, although he is British) was an actor for over twenty years before winning the Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay in 2001 for Gosford Park. ... Sharpes Rifles is the first of the Sharpe television dramas, based on the Bernard Cornwell novel of the same name. ... Sharpes Regiment is a British television drama, part of a series that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a British soldier during the Napoleonic Wars. ...


Harry Price is shot and apparently killed in Sharpe's Company, when in the book the character killed is Captain Knowles; however Price, played by a different actor, is alive and well in Sharpe's Waterloo. Sharpes Company is a British television drama, part of a series that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a British soldier during the Napoleonic Wars. ... Sharpes Waterloo is a British television drama, part of a series that follows the career of Richard Sharpe, a British soldier during the Napoleonic Wars. ...


The television series also makes more use of the soldiers Sharpe commands, whilst Harper is the only one of note in the books. This led to the addition of Harris and Perkins as riflemen in later Cornwell books, notably Sharpe's Battle, which was written after the television series had commenced. Sharpes Battle is a novel of historical fiction, a component of the Sharpe series written by Bernard Cornwell. ...
