Sean Bean is back as the swashbuckling hero in Sharpe’s Challenge. A year after Wellington crushes Napoleon at Waterloo, dispatches tell of a local Maharaja, Khande Rao, who is threatening British interests in India. Wellington sends Sharpe to investigate what turns out to be his most dangerous mission to date. The fate of an Empire and the life of a General’s daughter lie in one man’s hands…
After five seasons of action-packed adventure films, the award-winning Sharpe returns as two feature length episodes written by Russell Lewis (The Best Man, Inspector Morse, Hornblower). Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, North Country, Flightplan), who returns to the role of Richard Sharpe for the first time in eight years, is joined once again by Daragh O’Malley (Rebel Heart) as Sharpe’s best friend Sgt Patrick Harper in this bloody enterprise filmed entirely in India.
Sharpe’s Challenge is based on the books by Bernard Cornwell.
