Im the only one who has rated this classic; so I feel duty bound to bring it to your attention. If you like period dramas or crime dramas, you have to give Cadfael a try.
Derek Jacobi is one of histories greatest actors, and was born to play the overlooked, genius in a period piece.
Cadfael, is based in England in the middle ages, and follows a genius, monk/herbalist Brother Cadfael. Cadfael uncovers the mysteries behind many of the murders that blight the time.
Granted, 'crime fighting monk', is not going to sell itself and seems a little absurd; however it isnt. Give it time and you will find it thoroughly enjoyable..like CSI set in the middle ages.
Let me put it a little more 'sinfully'
The middle ages comprised of;
Rampant and unpoliced crime
and a fundamentalist catholic rule, marred by corruption, sadism and perversion.
When you put it like that, maybe it might be worth a watch? ;)
CSI Middle Ages???
