Post Cadfael 
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108717/

My mom, who has a mixed track record on gifts for adults, hit a home run with a boxed 3 episode set of Cadfael she gave me this year. A BBC series starring Derek Jacobi as a Medieval monk with detective skills, the series takes great pains to remain authentic to its period, and the legal and social norms endured by Britons during that time.

A number of the episodes are on Netflix. You can see them after I'm done with them.

Sounds like a similar premise as The Name of the Rose by Umberto Ecco. That book also had a medieval monk in the role of a detective. Not a bad read.

Was also made into an excellent movie starring Sean Connery. One of my favorites. Thanks for the reminder!
