TV show description:
This fantasy-dramatic TV show is based on the series of Outlander novels by Diana Gabaldon and takes place in both the 1940s and the 1740s.

Quick-witted and beautiful Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) is a married combat nurse from 1945 who finds herself mysteriously thrown back in time to 1743 Scotland. Claire and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, are forced to marry to save her life. A passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Jamie is intelligent, principled, and (by 18th century standards) educated, and worldly> He has a tenderness and compassion that stands out in contrast to his contemporaries. A natural leader of men, he has no political ambitions or desire for battlefield glories. Instead, he wishes to remove the price on his head and return to his family’s ancestral farm.

Claire’s husband in her home time period is Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies), an intellectual and an academic. He served in British Intelligence section MI6 during the war as a spymaster, and was responsible for sending men on dangerous missions — some of whom never returned. With the war now over, he’s looking forward to a new career as a historian at Oxford when his wife mysteriously disappears in the Highlands.

Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) is a Captain in the English Army back in 1743 who has been posted in Scotland during a time when rebellion is in the air. As an officer in an occupying army, he’s seen and done terrible and horrific things in the undeclared war in the Highlands. He’s also a sadist who finds joy in the torment of others — a secret side to himself that he loathes and also has an unhealthy obsession with both Claire and Jamie.

A skilled and experienced warrior, Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish) is the War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie. His older brother Colum is the ruling Laird, but Dougal is his loyal right hand and the true muscle. He is courageous on the battlefield and is feared by many.

The Laird of the MacKenzie clan is Colum MacKenzie (Gary Lewis), Jamie’s maternal uncle and brother to Dougal. Colum suffers from Toulouse-Lautrec Syndrome, a degenerative disease that renders his legs immobile at times, and fills his days with a great amount of pain. Unable to rule by brawn, he must rely on his cunning and intellect to lead his clan.

Mysterious and dark, Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix) dutifully watches over his godson Jamie. Although a reserved man, he’s a very loyal godfather, and lives his life by a strict a code. And he’s more than happy to let his reputation and fists do the talking.

The wife of the procurator fiscal and a good friend to Claire, Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek) has such advanced knowledge of herbs and plants that many believe she is a witch. Geillis is a master manipulator.

We love the series and look forward to every episode. Please do not cancel this fascinating story that gives us history lessons, romance, adventure, mysticism and total escape every week. Also love the music . It is mesmerizing. If anyone knows where I could obtain a CD, I would listen to it continually. It is mesmerizing.

I have read the series of books and when I found out it was going to be a series on tv, I was alittle know what I mean, sometimes a tv series can ruin what the books have created, but I love the show, it actually gives more to the books more life. I am glad that I read the books first, and I hope the tv series continues thru the end of the book would break my heart to see it see it end. love love love the actors they’ve chosen for the parts!

Loretta October 13, 2014 at 3:40 pm

I am delighted that they have signed Outlander for a second season. I have a group that gets together at my house to watch the new episodes. It’s such a great story–I am a romantic! Sam is the ideal Jamie and Caitriona is perfect as Claire. I’ll be purchasing the series of books to see what happens to them in the future (or in the past as the case may be). It’s an exciting series and can’t wait for the next half of the season to start in April. I haven’t been this excited about a TV series in years. Thank to Starz!!
