SHARPE'S PERIL: It's India, 1818 and Lt Col Richard Sharpe and Sergeant Major Patrick Harper are travelling across India, escorting the beautiful Marie-Angelique Bonnet to meet her fiancee. While in bandit-plagued badlands, they come across the very dregs of the Crown's troops; an ill disciplined, rag-tag unit led by boy soldier Beauclare.

As the dust settles, it becomes apparent there have been many casualties and Sharpe realises that he is the only person now capable of getting this wagon train to the safety of the next army garrison. Little does Sharpe know that the adventure has only just begun and that he has inadvertently stumbled across a massive opium trafficking ring... SHARPE'S CHALLENGE: Wellington sends Sharpe to India following the news of unrest in the country. Sharpe finds himself tasked with saving a general's daughter and keeping a beautiful scheming woman at arms length.

Sean Bean returns as the swashbuckling soldier Richard Sharpe in this double-bill of the ITV drama based on the popular characters created by Bernard Cornwell. In 'Sharpe's Challenge' it's 1817, two years after the final defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo, and the Duke of Wellington (Hugh Fraser) dispatches Sharpe to India to rescue a general's daughter who has been captured by an Indian warlord. With the loyal Sergeant Harper (Daragh O'Malley) at his side, Sharpe travels deep into enemy territory, searching for the kidnapped girl while at the same time trying to avoid the attentions of the beautiful - but deadly - Indian princess Madhuvanthi (Padma Lakshmi). In 'Sharpe's Peril', Sharpe (Bean) and Harper (O'Malley) are travelling through bandit country on their way to Madras when they come across a run-down army unit fearful of attack. When the dreaded onslaught finally happens, Sharpe is called on to take control of the situation and lead the survivors to safety.
