Sharpe's Challenge
Sharpe's Challenge - Starring Sean Bean
Sean Bean is back as the swashbuckling hero in SHARPE’S CHALLENGE. A year after Wellington crushes Napoleon at Waterloo, 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 ...

Toby Stephens is Colonel Dodd, the villainous renegade officer. Padma Lakshmi is Madhuvanthi, favourite consort, now ruling as Regent. Also starring Lucy Brown as Celia Burrows, the general’s daughter held against her will, Michael Cochrane as the pompous General Simmerson, and Peter Hugo-Daly as the treacherous Sgt Shadrach Bickerstaff.
