Its really just more of Harris 8.  I thought it had a lot less of Sean in it and way too much of Jason.

Harris 9 contained quite a lot of personal Jason bitterness - because he got involved in the Paul MacGann lawsuit and was dropped from Revenge and Justice. I would have rather seen much more of the filming of Sharpe's Waterloo.

I'm sad to hear that. God knowns we all have times in our life that make us unhappy, but you just have to move on. Being
bitter is not entertaining to other people, but maybe he had to get it off his chest!!

I watched Harris 9 on friday and it was pretty much what Sable and Sylvene said it would be ( sadly ). However I have never
seen any of the pictures of Paul MacGann as Sharpe ( in uniform ) with the choosen men. Harris 9 as several B&W pictures of
him as Sharpe. As I looked at Paul all I could say was THAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING WHEN THEY CHOSE PAUL INSTEAD
OF SEAN FOR THIS ROLE!!!!!!!  He has none of Sean's arrogant, cocky, swagger, and confident attitude that Sean brings to this
character. It works so perfectly for Sharpe. Paul's Sharpe looks shell shock and not very believeable. I'm sure he's a nice guy
and a good actor, but this was not the right role for him.

I'd love to see the details of that lawsuit - apparently the settlement was massive (for the time) - a couple million quid.

Makes little sense to me.  If McGann chose to play six a side while they weren't filming and got hurt, how is the film company responsible?  That's kind of like saying that your job is responsible for an injury you receive after you've left work.

And why would Jason get involved in it?  As a witness?  To what?  That he injured his leg playing footie between takes?

I didn't know McGann had sued - it lowers my opinion of the man.  If he had a real gripe, he would have sued when it happened.  Apparently he waited until it was clear that the series was a money-maker and then decided he should have a share of it.

Not nice.

In the DVD Jason said that McGann was his friend and had gotten him the role of Harris. I agree with you I woudn't have given him
any money, but what can you do about the court system??? :slyfox

The plan for H10 was to follow my final days on location in Turkey, including the fateful bayonet thrust at La Haye Saint and go on to reveal what happened in the aftermath of leaving the Sharpe cocoon and how it has shaped my life ever since.

While editing the footage I realised the tenth Harris was going to be an epic project which wouldn’t receive justice crammed onto a 60 min DVD, even a double disc, which was also contemplated. So the upshot is that H10 will conclude with my last day shooting on the fifth series.

Have no fear though, all that post Sharpe footage (‘Harris: The Afterlife’) won’t go to waste. I plan to tweak the early episodes, edit the post Sharpe stuff into volumes, load a photo gallery, add a few surprise gems and squeeze in all into a box set.

Harris Ten is out! I received my Copy this morning and just watched it.
Some interesting titbits and ( not nearly enough ) Sean,as always concentrating on his role.
