Sharpe's Peril

Last Update: 02 Nov 2008

Sharpe is staying in India, with all the palaces, elephants and exotic
locations that proved so attractive in Sharpe’s Challenge. Sean Bean stars in
a new adventure which began filming March 3, 2008 in Khajuraho and Orccha,
India. Filming continued to April 19.
Sharpe’s Peril, by Russell Lewis, takes up where Sharpe’s Challenge left off.
Sharpe and Harper are on their way to Calcutta, from where they are to sail
to England, when they come upon an East India Company baggage train,
also Making its way to Madras. The party – which includes among its number
a heavily pregnant woman and a young French woman, Marie Angelique, who
is joining her fiancé – travels warily through enemy territory. Its leaders
fear Chitu, the legendary bandit leader who controls the area. When the
attack happens, the Company officers in charge prove inadequate to its defence,
Sharpe has to take over and lead the party 300 miles through enemy territory.
He has to train up the ill assorted group into proper soldiers and finds himself
defending helpless villagers against the corrupt and ruthless Colonel Dragomirov,
the local Company commander in the area.
Sharpe's Peril will be broadcast on ITV1 (UK) on November 2 and 7, 2008. An
