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.
Brianna makes her way across Scotland, twisting her ankle and collapsing in the cold until she is found and taken in by Laoghaire. Roger follows Brianna through the standing stones, and joins the crew of Stephen Bonnet’s ship to follow her to America. Brianna remembers the days before Frank’s death. Laoghaire realises that Brianna is Claire and Jamie’s daughter, and is angry. Laoghaire’s daughter Joan takes Brianna to Lallybroch – and Ian – before Laoghaire can have her arrested as a witch. During the crossing, Roger tries to help his ancestor, Morag MacKenzie, avoid Stephen’s cruelty. Brianna takes on a servant, Lizzie Wemyss, and books passage to America for them both.
