The son of Doctor Who rules!
29 June 2007 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I just wanted to say that I think Sean Pertwee, son of the late Jon Pertwee who played the third Doctor, is absolutely the best as Sheriff Hugh Beringar. He matches the description given in Ellis Peters' wonderful books to a tee and I simply adore his voice. :-) I did not care for the ginger-haired man who took over the role in the second season at all. In fact, it really ruined my enjoyment of the show after that. However, Derek Jacobi is awesome (as per usual) as Brother Cadfael, the former Crusader turned monk and worth the price of admission alone. The supporting cast is also excellent with another of my longtime faves Michael Culver (Capt. Needa of "Star Wars" fame) playing the part of the nasty Prior Robert.
