    An Excellent Medieval Who-Done-It!

    Greedy Religious folk want to have the same reknown and of course money poured into other churches, by going to a Welsh town, digging up a young girl's bones (a Saint), and taking them back for display in their own church. They base this trip on the ramblings of a delusional Brother and the purposefully wrong conclusions of another. There are many deliciously dislikable characters here as well as likable. Many twists and turns are added. Brother Cadfael is the only person with common sense and the ability to keep everyone from going to war over the bones. He also solves the murder and brings everything to an ironic and pleasing conclusion. I love that everyone is happy in the end and only a chosen few know the reality of it. This series is beautifully filmed. There's also smart dialogue and characterizations.
