Win Sharpe’s Peril on DVD!

Sharpe's Peril DVD

It’s the latest Sharpe to hit DVD, out from BBC Home Video. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

This April, Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, GoldenEye) returns as Lieutenant Colonel Richard Sharpe in the new BBC action adventure DVD and Blu-ray release Sharpe’s Peril. Based on Bernard Cornwell’s novels, the latest installment from the BAFTA Award-winning series premieres on PBS’s Masterpiece Classic April 4, 2010. Continuing where Sharpe’s Challenge ended, Sharpe (Bean) and Sergeant Major Patrick Harper (Daragh O’Malley, Wire in the Blood, Waking the Dead) travel across India towards Calcutta where they are due to take the ship to England. While escorting the beautiful Marie-Angelique Bonnett (Beatrice Rosen, The Dark Knight, Charmed) to meet her fiancé, they inadvertently discover a massive opium trafficking ring run by the traitorous Colonel Dragomirov (Velibor Topic, Breaking and Entering) from the East India Trading Company. Sharpe’s Peril boasts the new swashbuckling adventure along with over two hours of special features including a making of featurette, photo gallery and more.

  • the Sharpe’s Rifles series is great, as was the Horatio Hornblower series… the problem is most of the British shows we see in North America have been butchered to allow for commercials — I’ve stopped watching Spooks/MI-5 because the cuts were so ridiculous, they appeared random, they certainly cut out plot elements that affected the story

  • Wayne: I know what you mean…as for SPOOKS, I can recommend the Region 1 DVDs, as they are the British versions and uncut. They even talk about, in one of the commentaries, cutting them for the American networks. Which blows my mind, because those shows are so taut as is. Anyway, at least up through Season 4 of the DVDs they’re uncut. You’d think a network like Showtime or HBO would get the rights, come to think of it.
