In one of his most celebrated roles, Sir Derek Jacoby plays a shrewd monk using his knowledge of medicine and nature to clear the name of a much-loved novice, and discover the truth behind the death ...
Cadfael questions the motives of a young man who turns up at the Abbey to join as a novice. While the young man admits to the crime, Cadfael's investigation flushes out untruths and a tortured family...
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

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.
