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.
Dodging a blade, Claire’s attacker trips and falls, suffering a critical head injury. Refusing to let him die, Claire insists an attempted trepanation but is unable to save his life. Ian arrives desperately looking for his son, Young Ian. Jamie claims he has not seen the boy, though young Ian has surreptitiously been working for him smuggling alcohol. Interrupting his very first romp with a lass, Young Ian is confronted by an intruder at the print shop, who discovers Jamie’s treasonous pamphlets. In the melee, the shop is soon consumed by fire, but Jamie saves the boy.
