Cadfael was an ITV TV Series that ran for four seasons from 1994 to 1998. The series featuring Derek Jacobi was adapted from "The Cadfael Chronicles" books (full list at bottom of page) by Ellis Peters of which there were twenty novels and one book of short stories. Only thirteen of the books were adapted for the TV series and I am only aware of twelve of these being re-published by Warner/Futura with TV-themed covers (the missing one being "The Potter's Field").
