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.
Claire and Jamie are reunited. She shares photos of Brianna, and he tells Claire about his son Willie. She also learns that Jamie prints subversive material, smuggles wine and spirits, and lives in a brothel. Claire is reunited with an adult Fergus and delighted to meet Young Ian, then gets acquainted with some of the prostitutes in Madame Jeanne’s establishment. While Jamie is out on a business errand, Claire finds herself in danger from a rummaging intruder who threatens to have his way with her. Claire fights back, resulting in a sudden “catastrophe”.
