Storyline

Six months after the end of World War II, Claire Randall and her husband Frank head to Scotland for a second honeymoon. They've been apart for 5 years with Claire having served as a front line nurse and this is a chance for them to get to know one another again. Frank is researching his own family history and they visit the ruins of Castle Leoch. Frank is particularly pleased when, with the help of a local minister, he comes across letters that mention his 18th century ancestor, Black Jack Randall, a British army officer who served in the area. When Claire goes off on her own and visits the site where they had watched Druid worshipers, she finds herself transported back in time to 1743. There she encounters Frank's ancestor and a handsome young Scot by the name of Jamie. Written by garykmcd

Great if it wasn't for the female lead
30 June 2017 | by taylorjan-63962See all my reviews

Loved the books and was looking forward to this TV series.

Would have been a higher score if it wasn't for the main female lead. She obviously isn't English and this affects her acting. And that voice! The clipped tones with each word ending deliberately pronounced....'he'll cuT your throaT. Serves you righT', 'kidpappeD, rapeD' I can't bear it, it's too much. Sorry although I want to watch it, her appalling acting, and accent is too much. An English actress would have been more natural.

Could try with sound off and subtitles I suppose.

The scenery is fantastic as well as the costumes but this actress is totally miscast.
