Sassenach:
Series opener.
Enjoyable beginning to the series.
Catriona Balfe makes for a very good lead as protagonist Claire Randall as she accidentally goes back in time from the 1940s to 1743.
The main male character is Jamie Fraser played by Sam Heughan. In fact his character was the reason why I decided to watch Outlander as Outlander author Diana Gabaldon revealed that the character was inspired by Doctor Who’s Jamie McCrimmon and the name Jamie Fraser is an amalgamation of Jamie and a variation of Frazer, the first name of Jamie McCrimmon actor Frazer Hines. So in a way Outlander has allowed Jamie McCrimmon to return to television.
Well handled on how Claire adjusted to her being in 1743 including modern (from her perspective) concepts to the people of 1743 and will be interesting to see what happens next from here.

Frazer Hines will appear in the second half of Outlander season 1 (currently scheduled for 2015) playing Sir Gordon Fletcher.
Hines’ casting in Outlander presents a full circle as Outlander author Diana Gabaldon had publicly stated that one of the Outlander character Jamie Fraser was named after Hines’ Doctor Who character Jamie McCrimmon.
While Jamie Fraser was named after Jamie McCrimmon, Gabaldon says that the Fraser surname is coincidental to the fact of Hines’ first name saying that she didn’t even know Hines’ name until many years after writing the first Outlander book as she explains in the following article:

Castle Leoch:
Season 1, Episode 2.
Annette Badland makes her first appearance in the series as Mrs Fitz and it looks like she is going to be a fun character.
Not bad as a second episode of the series as Claire is adjusting to her new surroundings.
Disturbing story that Jamie told Claire of what happened to his sister.
In retrospect it should not be a surprise that the planned destination didn’t exactly go as planned for Claire at episode’s end.

The Way Out:
Season 1, Episode 3.
Directed by Brian Kelly.
Guest stars Tim McInnerny and John Sessions.
The preview for this episode had shown Mrs Fitz declaring Claire a witch after the latter told her she is from the future. Somehow I should not surprise that this turned out to be a dream.
A very good episode of showing Claire’s abilities as a healer when she helped Mrs Fitz’s nephew.
Some hope for Claire upon hearing the intriguing folktale about the stones.
However since Outlander had recently been renewed for a second season, what it says in this episode’s title will be quite a while yet.

The Gathering:
Season 1, Episode 4.
Directed by Brian Kelly.
Also the name of a Torchwood episode. Kelly himself was a Torchwood director but not that particular Torchwood episode as he directed the first two episodes of Torchwood instead.
Not bad episode but her plan hit a snag when she tried to carry this plan through.
However her plan ultimately gets stalled due to an act of kindness that she displayed when she helped out a dying man on a boar hunt.
An example of how one person’s good deeds works against this very same person.
