Reading this blog's meme I noticed Six Foot Hobbit likes Shapre movies, but what people may not know was that 8th Doctor Paul McGann was picked to play Sharpe. During filming he was incapacitated and replaced by Sean "Boromir" Bean. And got serious wonga in an insurance payout.
Who knows perhaps in a parallel-dimension Paul McGann is Doctor Who, Boromir and Sharpe. In this one he's just plain unlucky.
And in other news they're filming new Sharpe.
