Now that I’ve come out of my Comic-Con haze, I’ve created a new gallery of all of my photos from Friday’s event. In the gallery below you’ll find all of my pics from the red carpet (or should we say tartan carpet) premiere, followed by the cast Q&A session with Sam, Cait, Lotte, Graham, Tobias, Diana, and Ron. The cast rolled up to the tartan carpet in classic 1940s cars, and followed bagpipers and lads in kilts onto the press line. After we had our chance to chat with the cast and crew, we all went inside the theatre and were treated to a performance by composer Bear McCreary, who played some classic Scottish tunes and debuted the theme he wrote for Claire and Jamie. Seeing the first episode on the big screen was truly a remarkable experience, and I I think it’s safe to say that I wasn’t the only one in the audience with goosebumps and a lump in their throat. The first episode was everything I could hope for (the second, which I screened before the premiere, is just as good, but that’s all I’ll say for now). I don’t think you will be disappointed with the show. Starz and the cast and crew have done an amazing job, and it’s everything I could hope for and more. Hope you enjoy the pics from this very epic night!

Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
