Trivia

Author Diana Gabaldon credits watching Frazer Hines in the Doctor Who serial The War Games (and finding him fetching in a kilt) as the inspiration for setting her first novel, Outlander, in 18th-century Scotland, and for naming the novel's male protagonist "Jamie". (However, she says that the character's surname, "Fraser", is a coincidence, as the PBS station on which she watched Doctor Who habitually cut off the episode's credits, so she did not learn Frazer Hines' name until several years after Outlander was published.) Hines would later go on to play Sir Fletcher Gordon in the episode Wentworth Prison. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the first half of Season 2 (which is set in France), part of the opening song's lyrics are in French. In the second half of Season 2 (which is mostly about preparing for war), there is a militaristic drum roll added to the opening song. See more »

Well crafted and riveting
11 August 2014 | by (Nebraska, U.S.) – See all my reviews

Having discovered Gabalton's novels only recently (generally reserving my limited reading time to the likes of Bernard Cornwell and Patrick O'Brien, more swords;less romance),I was pleased with the quality of the production, casting, pace and overall presentation of this complex story. Romantic? Yes. However, if the mini-series story line continues in keeping with the books (as seems likely)it will likely unfold into dovetailing themes of sacrifice,duty,honor,jealousies and complex loyalties that even many of the male viewers will relate wholeheartedly to. Not since PeterJackson's close to the novel(s) rendition of the Lord of the Rings saga have I been as pleased (at least with the initial installment) with a book-to-screen version of a great story. Thanks STARZ!
