In 2006, after a gap of eight years, the award-winning drama Sharpe returned to ITV for two feature length episodes, attracting more than seven million viewers. Now our hero returns for Sharpe's Peril, another epic adventure starring Sean Bean and written by Russell Lewis (Murphy's Law, Inspector Morse). As Sharpe and Harper journey across India in 1818 with the beautiful Marie-Angelique Bonnet, they come across a ragtag army unit supervising the transport of a suspected murderer. However, when the group is attacked by a bandit, Sharpe must get everyone safely to the next garrison - little suspecting he has stumbled across an opium-trafficking ring. Daragh O'Malley and Beatrice Rosen also star.
