Cadfael Fan Tributes
4 Paul Hart from Shrewsbury: I am proud to say that I work at Shrewsbury Abbey where Cadfael was based on, and where Edith Pargeter (Ellis Peters) got the insperation from.
3 Jas & SaraRose from Chico, California: My daughter and I refer to this show as "CSI: Dark Ages"! I watched in the original years, and when I saw it coming back to PBS I made sure she got to see. Of course Derek Jacobi is a world-class actor and brought that with him; but I have to commend the writers for making the 'mystery' side an actual mystery that you could work out... no "magic bullet" endings. Was Brother Jerome the one we eventually started calling "Brother A#%-H^$&@"?
:^) Thanks PBS for bringing us poor colonies the BBC!
2 Maria Brown from LaPorte,IN: I liked the Virgin In the Ice episode the best when Cadfael finds out he has a son. It was a great moment.
1 Zoe Luscombe from Plymouth: I'am 13 years old and a big fan of Cadfael, Sean Pertwee is my favourite Hugh, Derek Jacobi is a brilliant actor.
