Born in London, he directed TV's Coronation Street (1972) by his early twenties and gained international recognition for his work on the much-praised, eleven part television adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited (1981). Sturridge has made four assured forays into feature films, including the lyrically sculpted black-and-white segment, "La Forza del Destino" from Aria (1986).
With a particular affinity for handsomely executed period films and rich literary adaptations, he filmed another Evelyn Waugh novel, A Handful of Dust (1988) and the lushly beautiful and brilliantly acted film version of E. M. Forster's first novel, Where Angels Fear to Tread (1992).
Sturridge also had a brief acting career, portraying the young Edward VII in some episodes of the ATV serial Edward the Seventh (aka Edward the King) (1972). In later episodes Edward was played by Timothy West.
