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.
Claire delivers Petronella Mueller’s baby, but Petronella, her baby, and her brother-in-law soon die of the measles. Believing the Cherokee cursed him, a distraught Gerhard Mueller scalps the healer Adawehi, Claire’s friend, in revenge. The Indians retaliate, killing Gerhard and his wife and burning their house. Meanwhile, Jamie is reunited with Murtagh, who is now a blacksmith in a nearby town. In 1971, Roger tracks Brianna to Inverness, where she has gone through the standing stones to warn her parents.
