I enjoyed Cadfael immensely, though I think the first two seasons with Sean Pertwee as Hugh Berenger were by far the best.
Being very fond of historical movies/books, it was wonderful to see a tv series that handled the setting so well.
Derek Jacobi shines as brother Cadfael, bringing his wonderful talent to the role and delivering a sterling performance each time. It is so easy to love Cadfael, with his strong sense of justice and dry wit. not to mention his rebellious streak :-)
I'd reccommend this to anyone who fancies something different or who, like me, is fond of historical fiction.
A rare treat!
