    Has any one any idea regarding the episode Sharpe's Challenge when it will be shown?

    Thanks so very much for letting us know about the new episode! I haven't heard anything here in Texas, but that doesn't mean too much. I'll keep an ear out for info!

    It just finished filming, so I'm guessing we probably won't see it until the end of 2006. Maybe it will be on earlier, though.

    It's official! Bernard Cornwell has confirmed that Sharpe's Challenge will air in two parts on April 23 and April 24 on ITV in the UK. As for the US, who knows? Maybe it will air on Masterpiece Theatre...

    Thanks, mysteryfan! I will totally keep an eye out for it on PBS. my big worry is that it'll be on cable, which I don't have. Oh well, an excuse to rent a hotel room with the hubby then! *g*

    Verity, though I've pretty much left this site, I wanted to log in and give you a quick note. Sorry for the false hope, but the new episode Sharpe's Challenge will air September on BBC America. Starting at the end of this month, they will show all 14 previous Sharpes culminating with the showing of Challenge.

    I'm sorry you don't have cable, but maybe you could get the DVD when it comes out?

    mysteryfan, thanks for the update; I was out-of-town when you posted, so I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner! Thanks again and the hubby and I'll keep an eye out for the new stuff!
