Trivia

According to Ronald D. Moore (the TV Series developer), his crew decided to keep the Gaelic words instead of translating them to English. This maintained the first person narrative by showing Claire's inability to understand the Gaelic. This idea was suggested by producer David Brown, who said he's seen something similar in Skin Deep (1998), a foreign alternative movie starring the actor and singer Gustavo Goulart. 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 »

Very Enjoyable
9 August 2014 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Although I have only seen the first episode so far, I have to say I really enjoyed it. Having read the book many, many years ago I was curious to see how the characters would be portrayed. I wasn't disappointed as the cast have been well chosen and I can't wait to watch the rest of the series. Set in WWII I was impressed with the attention to detail and I thought the whole thing was well made and I am certainly impressed. I thought Jamie was perfect for the part and Claire too, they both looked just as I imagined inside my head. Well done to everyone who has been involved in the making of this series. I can't wait for more!
