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 Scotland, Jamie finds himself compelled to support the Jacobite rebellion. He and Claire seek military assistance from his grandfather, Lord Lovat, and are reunited with Colum and Laoghaire. Colum hopes to discourage the rebellion, which he is certain will fail. Laoghaire begs Claire’s forgiveness, and later agrees to help Claire and Jamie manipulate Lovat. Playing both sides, Lovat promises peace to Colum, but also sends Jamie some troops as reinforcements.
