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.

    I dearly love Outlander!! I’ve read all the books, and to see the books come alive on my television … Well… sometimes it takes my breath away. The scenery and costumes are so authentic.. I’ve always wanted to know more about the Scotland that my family came from. Claire is right there… The McRea’s came to the colonies about the same time as Claire. They fought in the American Revolution, as did the Riddles in my family, and they lived in the Carolinas. Albeit, the Riddles fought for the Brits.
    Also… I pay very strict attention to Clair when she’s making poltices and mixing herbs. It’s an art that we have lost…
    PLEASE Don’t cancel this show!!! It’s the best one to come along in a very long time!.

    I think Outlander is an awesome show. Very realistic with very compelling actors. While remaining intriguing and unpredictable. Yes it deserves another season, how could it not with the impeccable actors, writing and not to mention the beautiful scenery. id be pretty disappointed.

  3. Di says

    love the Outlander series, please don’t cancel. I would love to see all the books fulfilled in the series! Thank you!

  4. Annette Faucheux says

    The Outlander first season was very well done. They truly picked an appropriate cast….to me so similar to how I pictured them in the wonderful books. I am looking forward to the second season.

  5. T Marshal says

    Every since I saw this on TV, I had to get the books. I gotta say, I’m normally not overly impressed with any series once I’ve read the book(s), but this one is excellent! Can’t wait to see what the writers have going for Season 2 – YOU ARE RENEWING, RIGHT?

  6. Linda Forman says

    Please renew Outlander…I have loved and read every book and the TV Series has been great please let it keep running!!!!!

    Pretty good show, good actors, minus the graphic scenes in “to Ransom A Man’s Soul”
    There were quite disgusting.
    Sad that such taste for violence can ruin a good show.

    • Sharon Congdon says

      in response to a comment made by graphic scenes in Outlander.
      No one is forced to watch the show so if graphic scens bother some people
      the simple solution is turn it off and watch something else. For those of US
      who love a wonderfully written series and book. ENJOY OUTLANDER
      wonderfully done

    • Tony Neece says

      That episode was truely ugly and hard to watch, but also true to the period and insight into the extent that evil and madness exists in some who have rank and position. Also incredibe acting!

  8. Barrie Bush says

    I would certainly hate to ee this series go away after having gotten stared on it, and into it .
    You have gotten a lot of people hooked on it . Now you owe your viewers the decency of playing it out

    • Sharon Congdon says

      I totally agree with Barrie. I think there are a lot of people hooked on this series and we are ll waiting to hear if there will be a season three. Please don’t disappoint.

  9. says

    If the scenes are to graphic for some viewers watch something else. This is
    an adult show not meant for children or people that are squeamish.
    I think it’s done wonderfully and true to the book. PLEASE RENEW SEASON 3
