At and around the Shrewsbury abbey, Brother Cadfael is a monk with a difference. Given a choice, he would enjoy just being a simple gardener and herbalist for his home. However, too often events force him to use his other talent as a master sleuth in response to mysterious crimes happening in his community. While he investigates these crimes, he often finds himself at odds with the contemporary attitudes of the times with his own ahead of his time beliefs.Written by

In the series, Jerome is portrayed as being much younger than Cadfael. Cadfael's age is around 70 and Jerome appears to be in his mid-thirties. In the book "The Devil's Novice" it is stated that Jerome was 20 years younger than Cadfael. It also stated that Cadfael was 60, meaning Jerome was 40. Also, Jerome comes off as naive concerning the ways of the world. In reality, he was quite knowledgeable about the world beyond the Abbey which was what actually set he and Cadfael against one another so often. See more »
My vote for this series would be an 8 out of 10. It's fairly accurate to the book and I think I actually enjoy the series more. It got rather strange when the actor playing Hugh Beringar kept changing, Sean Pertwee (from the premier season) portrayed him the best. Some of the later episodes fell short of my expectations and sometimes the extras' voices were quite obviously dubbed in, but all in all it was quite an entertaining show.
