Have any of you seen the ITV adaptations of Bernard Cornwells novels about Richard Sharpe, set in the Napoleonic Wars? Starring Sean Bean? I am a big fan of the series and I was just wondering if any of you had seen it.

Incidentally, look who I met at a re-enactment event yesterday...http://picasaweb.google.com/110626422782693506825/MyPictures#5503400083757116914 (sorry its a web link not an embedded pic, but it didn't work :S ).




[for those not in the know, its Jason Salkey, who plays one of Sharpe's men, Rifleman Harris, in the show.]

alienator - have you seen the 'Hornblower' series? It's a bit like Sharpe but set on the high seas. Recommended.
