Trivia

Sir Derek Jacobi had his hair shaved to a tonsure during filming, instead of wearing a bald cap. Some actors felt that was a little too much; others had their own heads shaved. See more »

There is an aerial shot that shows the corpses of the garrison hanged by King Stephen, followed by Brother Cadfael's counting them by tens: "seventy... eighty... ninety... five?" In the aerial shot, there are only eighty-five corpses. See more »

Quotes

Brother Cadfael: We deal with what is. Leave what might have been to eyes that can see it plainly.

Pertwee as Beringar
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sean Pertwee was a good Hugh Beringar, but he doesn't look anything thing like the book character. The book Hugh Beringar is small and dark, not tall and blond. Even so, it's too bad he could play the role for one the one season. I would have liked to see him in all of the episodes. The rest of the casting was marvelous. Sir Derek Jacobi is perfect as Cadfael. It's a shame they had to tinker with the story and change so many things. I really missed the romance between Hugh and Aline. I also missed the beggar that provided Cadfael with crucial clues to discover the murderer. Why did they have to change him to a soldier?
