5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Four, May 16, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brother Cadfael: Set 3 (The Pilgrim of Hate / The Potter's Field / The Holy Thief) (DVD)
High production values, taut story telling and realism - this series excels. I'm a huge Brother Cadfael fan and I loved all of them, I liked this one the best. If you love intensely told, well crafted drama with all of the historically tough realism of a troubled England in the throes of civil war, during an age lit by fire and superstition, you will be fascinated by series 4. The camera work is excellent, incidentally, and the characterizations spot on - Jerome, in the book series, does worse things than he ever did in any of these dramatizations, but he's his wonderfully annoying self, and Prior Robert takes his lumps, but you find at last that he has his own row to hoe, and it's not a very easy one. A soupçon of sympathy for poor Robert Pennant, knee deep in dirty humanity. I like Anthony Green's Hugh almost as well as Sean Pertwee's. It goes without saying that Sir Derek is superb.

The Potter's Field is particularly well crafted in my opinion, with an ending of surprising honour.

Not for those who want 'cozy as a teapot' stories.
