Synopsis by Mark Deming

Sean Bean returns as Richard Sharpe in this historical adventure based on the novel by Barnard Cornwell. Dashing British soldier Sharpe has finally married the woman he loves, Jane Gibbons (Abigail Cruttenden), but their honeymoon is cut short when Richard is called back to duty by Wellington (Hugh Fraser) as the British Army sets out to capture a compound held by French forces in the Pyrenees. However, as Sharpe and his comrades bravely battle against Napoleon's forces, Sharpe gets word that a dangerous fever is spreading through England, and Jane has contracted the illness. Sharpe is wondering if he should stay on the battlefield or if he should be by Jane's side when he encounters a face from his past, his nemesis Ducos (Feodor Atkine). Sharpe's Siege was the tenth Richard Sharpe adventure produced for British television; the Sharpe films later found a loyal audience in the United States after they aired on PBS.
