Description
Based on Ellis Peters's first Cadfael novel, 1977's "A Morbid Taste for Bones" finds Cadfael (Derek Jacobi) and his fellow brothers heading off to Wales to "rescue" the bones of a Welsh saint. When the Welsh people take umbrage at the English strangers' hubris, a murder is committed, and Cadfael must find out to which camp the killer belonged. In "The Rose Rent," a young widow gives the abbey a house she once shared with her late husband, asking only one rose from the garden each year; however, someone is willing to kill to stop the "rose rent," and Cadfael must find out why. And "The Raven in the Foregate" concerns the murder of the unpopular new parish priest, who has angered the townspeople by scorning an unwed mother and her child. After his acclaimed role as the complex Roman Emperor Claudius in the television series I, Claudius, Derek Jacobi switched genres to play a Crusader turned monk in the series Cadfael, seen on PBS's Mystery! in the late 1990s and adapted from the bestselling books by Ellis Peters. At the Benedictine Monastery of Saints Peter and Paul, Brother Cadfael's knowledge of flowers and herbs—as well as his canny insights into human nature—help him and his friend, Sheriff Hugh Beringar, to solve crimes and right wrongs in war-torn medieval England (12th-century Shrewsbury, to be exact). Special features of this set include exclusive audio commentary by Jacobi, an Ellis Peters biography, a production scrapbook, and more.
