Overview

In acquiescence to the wish of the Prior of Shrewsbury Abbey to have the bones of St. Winifred on display, a group of monks trek to Wales to dig up her remains. The monks are met with great hostility that escalates when a man opposed to their excavation is found dead. The monks are held under suspicion, and things are further complicated by a young monk's insistence that he is seeing visions of St. Winifred. Although Cadfael (Derek Jacobi) exposes the monk's vision as fraudulent, he withholds the truth behind the monk's lies.

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.
