Trivia

When Sharpe tells Harris to go home and write a book with lots of shooting in it and he will become a rich man. This is a direct reference to what some of the 95th Soldiers did do after the wars were over, and some did indeed become rich, due to the hero status that riflemen had at the time See more »

Quotes

Colonel Berkeley: [Leroux breaks for it] He breaks his parole, and kills an eighteen year old boy!
Richard Sharpe: Don't worry sir, we'll go in and get him tomorrow.
Colonel Berkeley: Tomorrow! I'm going in tonight, Sharpe! I want to see that bastard dead by dawn.

Sharpe series favorite
21 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with the in-depth review already submitted. This episode of the Sharpe series is my all-time favorite and the character of Lord Jack and the performance by James Purefoy have become a must -see every few months or so! I own all fourteen of the Sharpe series and annually play them in sequence. James Purefoy's portrayal of the tragic figure of Lord Jack and the tension-fraught scene in the library are worthy of any first-line production in the theater. You can tell I am a huge Sharpe fan (Sean Bean being the ultimate action hero of all time!) and I really feel sorry for people who have missed this engrossing and intelligently researched and produced series! Bernard Cornwell, author of the novels from which Sharpe is taken, is an outstanding writer and I recommend his other works to all. If you are a reader, try one of his many engrossing historical novels.
