Another good outing, 25 February 2000
Author: Paul Chambers (WileE) from Gloucester, England

Sharpe's Mission bucks the trend of the later Sharpe episodes in still being a good story with plenty of action. Once again Sean Bean excels in the lead role, ably supported by an impressive cast.

The story, as mentioned, is good; exposing the corrupt nature of some elements engaged in France, as well as hinting at the first signs of weakness in Sharpe's marriage. The episode moves along at a brisk pace, and yet still has time for some nice touches of humour with Harris' dealing of the slimy Shellington.

Overall a good episode which whilst not achieving the highs of the first few outings, still an improvement over some of the later showings.
