While many of us die-hard Murtagh fans were dreading, but not surprised at the fate of our beloved underdog in Season 5, many have been speculating that the other-worldly time travelling show may have a Murtagh moment pop up or two in coming seasons. Ghosts of Outlander? We were, after all, treated to Jamie’s ghost in episode 1 of the series, and Diana Gabaldon has hinted we may revisit his character in memory as Jamie shapes up for battle again. She has also said she will be including him in one of her bump-out novels, a prequel to Outlander.
What scenarios have you played out for the Murky One of Deep Waters? Envisioning him coming to Jamie before the various battles of the American Revolutionary War was indeed in the books, however with the Outlander writer’s room modding books to meet the demands of onscreen and now post Covid, will there be room? They do like to dangle the what ifs on us, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.
Recently Duncan posted himself in longish hair again, and we all know that he loves to clip off his hippie look. He was posting from the HIghlands during the last of the filming last month. Of course hanging with McTavish again…wait a minute. Hmmmm. They have been keeping all locations under tighter wraps and with Covid and drawing large crowds, it’s no wonder.
What say you? Bring him back as a ghost in the mists before one of the battles leading up to the Revolution? Dreams of Jamie when he is troubled about losing Claire? (Warning, there are some spoilers with the new season it’s hard to not talk about.) What do you think?

Last and never in the least bit afraid to say so, is fan favorite Tim Downie, who seems to be making the Outlander Con circuit for this post Covid con season. He will be at both Outlandish Vancouver (Seattle) and Sasnak City (Kansas City). Hopefully you will get to have one of his readings of great children’s stories just like he shared with us during Covid lockdown on Instagram.
Of course not to be missed, Tim Downie has just interviewed on Craig Parkinson’s (Misfits, Line of Duty, Endeavor, A Great Night Out) podcast The Two Shot Podcast, which you can watch here. Actors on acting and no fluff. Please consider a donation here: https://linktr.ee/twoshotpod
It was announced this week that sadly, Richard Rankin will not be attending The Gathering in Kansas City. The good news is, he got cast in a play and will be in production during the convention. We don’t know the play yet, but will get that out as soon as we can. That said:
Sasnak City Gathering November 18-21 2021 is also SOLD OUT! That’s no surprise as much of the Outlander Fandom is finding the prolonged Droughtlander to be rather frustrating. While many Cons did their best with online offerings, it’s still not quite the same as in person. That said, as of now there is indeed a waitlist situation. So contact them at their Facebook Page
