Trivia

Screenwriter Nigel Kneale said of his adaptation of Bernard Cornwell's novel: "I didn't use much of [the book]. I used the first ten pages, I think. Then I had an idea which would be more fun to do. It was all about magic by the time I was through with it." See more »

Quotes

Bess Nugent: For God's sake there's enough black sheep in our family to fill a field! Whoring and swindling, but Will isn't one of them. And as for your wife Kitty and her tribe...
Lord Wellington: Bess what is this for?
Bess Nugent: Let me go too, and find him.
Lord Wellington: No you will not. You will be removed from here, in the opposite direction, disarmed and obedient.

Disappointing By Sharpe's Standards
7 February 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is probably the weakest instalment of the TV series of Sharpe, thats not to say that it's a bad show Sharpe's Gold is a solid 2 hours of TV entertainment it's just that it's not up there with the rest of the series.

The plot just doesn't work Aztec worshippers hiding in the mountains of Spain just seems to far fetched. While the characters are as strong as ever they all seem to be wandering about not doing much. It's still got that fun sense of adventure that all Sharpe shows have but take away the historical grounding in fact and real life and something is lost, the Aztecs just don't have the reality of the usual Sharpe foes.

A good piece of TV but not up to Sharpes best, if you've never seen Sharpe before see Sharpes Eagle or Sharpes Company first and save this one for when the rest of the episodes run out. 6/10
