Outlander is an historical drama television series based on the ongoing novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon.
Developed by Ronald D. Moore, the show premiered on 09 August 2014, on Starz. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married former World War II military nurse in Scotland who, in 1945, finds herself transported back to 1743. There she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a member of Gabaldon’s fictionalised version of Clan Fraser of Lovat, and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite rising.
In 1744, Claire and Jamie have settled in Paris, ostensibly working for Jared but actually seeking to foil the Jacobite rebellion. Jared arranges for Jamie to meet with Prince Charles Stuart himself, but Jamie cannot deter him from planning to seize the English throne for his father. Claire secures an invitation to the Palace of Versailles, where she hopes to meet King Louis XV of France and thwart his funding of the Stuart cause. The Frasers make an impression, and are reunited with the Duke of Sandringham. Claire is shocked to learn that Randall is still alive, and is not sure if she should tell Jamie.
