Solid, lusty Regency fun
19 February 2002 | by c.o-sullivanSee all my reviews

This was the first episode of Sharpe I have seen, and entirely explains the appeal of Sean Bean, which is an aspect of British culture which had slightly puzzled me. Sharpe sounds better than you might expect, looks good and constitutes solid period entertainment. My only reservation is about the two heroines - isn't it time even Regency heroines grew up? Georgette Heyer would be appalled.
