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 1948, a pregnant Claire moves to Boston with Frank. Their relationship is tense, and she struggles to adjust to her new life as a housewife. She gives birth to Jamie’s daughter. In 1746, Jamie and Rupert have survived the Battle of Culloden, but Jamie’s wounds are grave. They are caught by redcoats, and Rupert is executed. Just as Jamie’s turn comes, he is recognised by Lord Melton, the elder brother of the boy – John Grey – whose life Jamie spared before Prestonpans. Bound by honour, Melton sends Jamie home to Broch Tuarach, expecting him to die en route.
