Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. Sean Pertwee is also great as the local undersheriff, though sadly his role is recast twice in subsequent seasons and the character becomes more of a supporting player than the important partner Pertwee was here.

And the same character becomes less and less smart regarding criminals and investigation. Jacobi is very good, great, but in the end he has less and less to work with and the story lines diverge further and further from the character development of the first two seasons. I'm not saying anything to give any games away.

Not because of the cast changes, but because the personalities of cast members start changing.

Cadfael finds he has a double murder to investigate following the deaths of a pregnant girl and the priest who refused to take her confession.

The last season is just OK, but it's been quite some time since I watched it.

Judith Perle, the recently-widowed wife of a rich merchant, becomes the object of interest for the men of Shrewsbury. If you read the books, you will totally enjoy this series. However, Cadfael's manner was brusque--much more so than usual for this normally gentle monk.The next day, the woman who came to Cadfael is no where to be found.

Bought it because it was cheap for a great show. A great wedding is to take place at the Abbey between a beautiful young girl and a powerful baron. This is especially important because whether or not the dead woman can be buried in sacred ground is at stake, since the Church won't allow suicide victims to be buried in their cemeteries.

To say that Ailnoth is a nasty, judgmental jerk is a gross understatement and he immediately seems to try his best to alienate himself from the townsfolk.Around the same time, a young lady comes to Cadfael and tries to confess to him.

Even Derek Jacobi's Cadfael is no more wise or reasonable in the last episode than he is in the first. Yet the characters never develop and remain one-dimensional throughout. These are as good as the other series and repeatedly playable and enjoyable. Add the first question. Once a Crusader, now a man of the cloth, the worldly but humble Brother Cadfael (Sir Derek Jacobi) uses his keen intuition to protect the innocent and bring the guilty to account in war-torn medieval England. I enjoyed all the Cadfael mysteries and in this series (3) especially liked The Rose Rent (a happy ending may not always be realistic, but I still like them). I recommend series 1, 2 and 3, especially to those who like mediaeval history made into thrillers retaining much of the historical context of 1135 - 1154. The plot has many nice twists and turns and kept me guessing for some time.

What was once a close friend of Cadfael, becomes an antagonist, with no good story line to support it. I do not remember seeing this program when it first came out, but it had a very familiar feel about it as I watched each of the four seasons.

Derek Jacobi absolutely shines in the title role and the writing is very strong. Top subscription boxes – right to your door, © 1996-2020,, Inc. or its affiliates.

Sir Derek was outstanding in the role of Cadfael. These are as good as the other series and repeatedly playable and enjoyable. An unpopular Puritanical priest new to Shrewsbury refuses to give a pregnant young girl absolution resulting in her apparent suicide. A good buy, too. Bought it because it was cheap for a great show.
