Our story begins at the end of Sharpe's Challenge. Sharpe and Harper are en route to Madras when they encounter a baggage train from the East India Company traveling through hostile territory. Chitu, a legendary bandit leader in control of the area, strikes fear in the members of the party.

The character Pvt. Daniel Deever (Charles Venn) dies a heroic death, but it is just after he commits an act of cowardice -- abandoning his post and comrades in the face of the enemy. In 1890, Rudyard Kipling penned the poem "Danny Deever" about the execution of a British soldier for murder. To "do a Danny Deever" is archaic slang for committing a hanging offense; cowardice is among those offenses. See more »

My wife and me are big fans of the series so tuned in this latest 2 parter with anticipation. Unfortunately as the story began to unfold we we felt that that we had been here before. By the end we felt disappointed with the outcome.
Although the scenery was magnificent, the story itself just dragged and it was just too clichéd. You just knew what was going to come next...sorry but it's time to draw a close on the TV adventures of Richard Sharpe.
I just wish Captain Fredrickson and the chosen men could have magically appeared to give us a break from the Sharpe and Harper show!
