Shame Paul McGann didn't have any space, I would've given him a vote aswell. Even though I found the movie incredibly bad, I enjoyed every scene he was in. He was the thing that made the movie wachable. And he's absulutely amazing in the audio stories. I love the way he portrays the Doctor.

Did you know that he was originally going to play Richard Sharpe in the TV series, but broke his arm while they were making the first one. They managed to get Sean Bean to play the part - and the rest is (as they say) history. :)

No way! Really? :o
Would've been brilliant with him aswell! Though I love Sean Bean in the part.

The only thing I don't like about him is that Sharpe was a Londoner in the books. Still, I suppose that it would have been false if Sean Bean had attempted a southern accent!

And Patrick Harper was from Northern Ireland in the books, not Southern Ireland like the actor who plays him. :)

There's some attempts at an explanation of the accent of Sharpe by saying (if I remember correctly) that he lived in Yorkshire for a time. Bernard Cornwell had been going to move on to other stories when the TV show took off, so he shelved those and wrote more Sharpe. That's his excuse for never finishing the Starbuck American Civil War books.
