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.
Jamie, Claire, and Young Ian arrive at River Run, the sprawling plantation of Jamie’s maternal aunt, Jocasta MacKenzie Cameron. Claire is uncomfortable that Jocasta owns slaves, and when she names Jamie as her heir, he reveals his intent to somehow free them. Jocasta’s friend Farquard tries to convince him of the futility of such an attempt. A slave attacks a white overseer; Claire and Jamie save the critically injured slave from immediate execution, but an angry mob demands they hand him over. Forced to comply, Claire euthanises him first.
