AMC’s new Monday night ten-part series THE TERROR is based on a novel by Dan Simmons, which is in turn based on real events. In 1848, two British Navy vessels, The Terror and The Erebus, voyaged towards the Arctic in search of the then-undiscovered Northwest Passage. The ships became trapped in the ice. Both were finally located in recent years (after the book was published, but before the series was made), but the fate of their crews is unknown. Simmons’ novel and the series, adapted by David Kajganich, imagine what might have happened to the men, combining historical observation with […]Read On »

Like his OUTLANDER cast mate Sam Heughan (who plays heroic eighteenth-century Highlander Jamie Fraser), actor Richard Rankin speaks with an authentic Scots accent. Rankin hails from Glasgow; his OUTLANDER character, Roger Wakefield, is from Inverness. The adult Roger entered OUTLANDER at the end of Season 2. English couple Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) met the orphaned boy as a child during their fateful ‘40s trip to Scotland, when Claire accidentally traveled 200 years into the past. It is there that she and Jamie meet and fall in love. At the end of Season 2, Claire […]Read On »

OUTLANDER: Executive producer Maril Davis on Season 3 – Exclusive Interview

OUTLANDER logo | ©2017 Starz

The Starz series OUTLANDER, now in its third season on Sunday nights, owes its success to many people. The Diana Gabaldon novels, translated for the television screen by Ron Moore, stars Caitriona Balfe as mid-twentieth-century English nurse-turned surgeon Claire Randall and Sam Heughan as her eighteenth-century Highlander soulmate Jamie Fraser. Without executive producer Maril Davis, OUTLANDER the show would not exist, at least not in its present form. It was Davis who brought the project to her producing partner Moore in the first place.
