Epic jour­ney to the past

CityPress - - T# -

Out­lander Avail­able on Net­flix Since start­ing my Out­lander view­ing jour­ney, I have been hum­ming the theme song con­stantly. It’s a lyri­cal Scot­tish tune as haunt­ing as the se­ries it­self, which tells the story of a woman named Claire who touches a rune stone in the Scot­tish coun­try­side and is trans­ported to 1743. Okay, so it sounds a bit way out, but the TV drama is so beau­ti­fully shot, and the his­tor­i­cal de­tails and cus­toms so lov­ingly recre­ated, that I was hooked. If you’re into Down­ton Abbey, this might be for you. There’s a bit of vi­o­lence and some not-safe-for-the-kids sex scenes, so be warned. – Grethe Koen
