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.
Accepting Governor William Tryon’s offer of land, Jamie and Claire settle in what Jamie has named Fraser’s Ridge. They are hassled by a group of Cherokee warriors, and a bear. Jamie is attacked by the bear and kills it, learning that it is actually a Cherokee banished for rape. He and the tribe agree to live with each other in peace. In 1971, Roger learns of Jamie and Claire’s settlement in North Carolina and calls Brianna to tell her that her parents found each other. He later learns that the Frasers die in a fire, but decides not to tell Brianna. Meanwhile, she has travelled to Scotland without telling Roger, to “visit her mother”.
