Acclaimed actor Sir Derek Jacobi stars as Brother Cadfael, a former crusade soldier, sailor and adventurer who is now a monk in charge of the gardens at Shrewsbury Abbey. He has travelled across continents, absorbed the wisdom of the world and has an extraordinary talent as a master sleuth. Cadfael is called upon to investigate the most baffling murders and mysterious crimes. He must often challenge age-old beliefs and superstitions to get to the truth.
I really enjoyed this series. To start with it seemed a little slow but it was worth persevering with. I had read the books ages ago & this series was quite true to the novels. Derek Jacobi was wonderful
