An Open Letter to Ron D Moore

Hi Ron & Maril,

Thanks for taking on the 'Outlander' project.
Thanks for bringing my favourite book/s to life.
Thanks for some awesome casting choices.
Thanks for allowing me to introduce my husband and other friends / family to the wonderful world created by Diana Gabaldon.
Thanks for involving the incredibly talented Terry Dresbach in costuming. She rocks.
Thanks for engaging Bear McCreary. His musical contributions are perfect.
Thanks for exploring a wider view of the novels; beyond Claire's view.
Thanks for daring to go where others never have...that we have never seen breastfeeding on television before Outlander is incredible.

Basically, thanks.
Keep on creating a wonderful, thoughtful television series that honours an incredible literary series.
Oh, and if anyone else writes to you suggesting they speak for me or other book fans, they don't.

Thanks,
Michelle

Edited to include co executive producer, and generous interactor with fans, Maril Davis, and apologies for not including her originally despite knowing she is instrumental in this production.

  10. in a perfect world, more Lollybrach and less boogie woogie would have been better for me, but glad to have the show and the actors in it! Careers, for some spectacular people, have been made, and I thank you for it!

  14. Agreed wholeheartedly!
    In the mid 90s I thought to myself..' Wow, what a movie This would make..but it will never be..'.
    Thank you for making many hopes and dreams come true, and in following the spirit and soul of Diana's series.

  16. I have read all the books and am NOT disappointed with the TV version. Everything about this show is first rate: the acting, directing the scripts, the scenery, the music, and most of all the costumes. Kudos to Ron, Maril, and the entire Outlander team. Keep up the good work that all of you are doing
