Product Description

All three episodes of the fourth and final season of this drama series starring Derek Jacobi as the medieval sleuth. In 'The Holy Thief', Cadfael is on the hunt for a beautiful slave girl and the bones of St Winifred, both of which have mysteriously disappeared from the Abbey. In 'The Potter's Field', Cadfael uncovers a terrible web of jealousy, adultery and suicide pacts when he examines the past of a potter who has entered the monastery under suspicious circumstances. In 'The Pilgrim of Hate', an old man's corpse is found in a sack in the Abbey, and Cadfael must find his killer.

When the decision was made to produce for TV several episodes from her mystery series about Brother Cadfael, that 12th century crusader turned monk turned detective who has been, ever since his creation, one of the most compassionate and unusual sleuths of literary history, novelist Ellis Peters (Edith Pargeter) was not entirely happy. In fact, as the series' star, Sir Derek Jacobi, explains in the extra footage provided on the now-released DVDs, Ms. Peters had very mixed feelings about giving up her brain child and entrusting it to other people who went about cutting and adjusting everything, from the storylines themselves to the way the protagonists speak and even the Chronicles' sequence, to the necessities and limitations set by the new medium. But she eventually acquiesced and at one point promised that "the next one I write, I'll make sure it's easier for you all to film."

While the thirteen episodes that were eventually produced are, thus, not entirely true to the individual Chronicles they are based on, they are closer than many other movie or TV versions of famous works of literature. Most importantly, they maintain not only the core story lines but also the historical authenticity, atmosphere and spirit set by Ms. Peters's books in a marvelous fashion. And Sir Derek Jacobi brings both the wealth of his experience and skill and all of his own shrewdness, intelligence, sense of humor and empathy to the role of the medieval Benedictine sleuth and thus truly becomes Cadfael -- for the thousands of new fans who are discovering the series through its enactment for TV just as much as for us who loved the books before they were ever transposed to a visual medium.

This episode in the Cadfael series makes for avid viewing. Set in bleak mid winter period our hero is forced into searching the local area looking for his missing apprentice who has fallen foul to a band of marauding crusaders. During his search Cadfael comes across a mysterious corpse trapped in frozen river and after Oswin is accused of the crime, Cadfael and sets out to find the real perpretator and clear his friends name. This a fantastic episode full of intrigue and action that followers of the series will relish. Unlike some of the other adaptations the story is detailed enough to keep you guessing until the very end. There are more revelations which come to light concerning Cadfael's past.These mixed emotions Jacobi portrays with great feeling and understanding. One of the best in the series and a must for all Cadfael fans.

I am writing this review to encourage fans of George Irving to watch this video. He plays Herluin, a zealous monk who tramps 200 miles to claim the bones of St Matilda for his own abbey, which is crumbling. He brings his young novice with him, who has had a vision about St Matilda and a beautiful woman. The beatiful woman turns out to be a slave girl. The bones of St Matilda are stolen and the slave girl kidnapped, ending in the murder of a friend of Cadfael's. Herluin is prime suspect, due to his passionate belief that Matilda belongs to him. A great performance by George Irving, Herluin is a medieval Meyer, very quick with the dry put-downs. All George fans should watch this.
