There are four series so far....this may be the last, so they say...

Series I had four episodes:
One Corpse Too Many
The Sanctuary Sparrow
The Leper of St. Giles
Monk's Hood

Series II had three episodes:
The Virgin in the Ice
St. Peter's Fair
The Devil's Novice

Series III had three episodes:
The Raven in the Foregate
A Morbid Taste for Bones
The Rose is Rent

Series IV has three episodes:
The Holy Thief
Pilgrim of Hate
The Potter's Field

Here in N.C. WUNC ran another ringer in on us again and did not run
the Potter's field last week, but instead an episode from Series II.
So, I guess here we've got another to go yet. The Potter's Field.

All episodes are available in boxed sets from dealers. Figure about
$20 per episode. WGBH in Boston is the one who produces the series,
which is shot in Eastern Europe, can't remember which country, but
they build and tear down the village each time, or did.
