Well we are in to week two of the new series, Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip With Sam and Graham, with Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish. So far, so good. We see lots of amazing Scottish countryside, that just makes you want to have a tantrum over travel restrictions. Or makes you that much more determined to get back to Scotland.
The first two episodes went from “Food and Drink” to “Scottish Sports”, and a few things in between. The sport episode just shows you how much manly challenging these two do to one another, the jabbing and ribbing, and the gratuitous clips from Outlander. In episode two, Sam challenges Graham to several sports, and surprisingly, or not, Graham is much better at throwing a hammer than Sam. Very competitive these two are. And how two such big personalities could fit in the wee RV is amazing, it must be like a TARDIS on the inside.
Next week it’s “Song and Dance”, time to hit the cultured road of Scotland. Hope you can join us and have some repast from the Outlander Droughtlander.
Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip With Sam and Graham Sundays on Starz®, Amazon and Amazon UK.
Sam Heughan returns to talk about his New York Times Best Selling Book, What is next for The Sassenach Whisky and of course we taste through a few more new whiskies and fawn over our favorite, mutual passion. . . The Water of Life.
Whiskey Neat is a Radio show on iTunes and ESPN 97.5 FM in Houston.
And here’s the podcast from earlier this year with Sam
Sam Heughan hasn’t just been riding bicycles built for two in and hunting down whisky distilleries in Scotland. Back in 2019 he went into production on a special forces drama. Sam Heughan is starring in a Sky TV Cinema production of special forces drama, SAS: Red Notice coming soon.
Oh, have you got your copy of Clanlands Book yet?
Deep beneath the English Channel a small army of well-trained war criminals have seized control of the Eurostar, taking four hundred hostages at gunpoint. Their plan: to blow up the Channel Tunnel and declare economic war on a government that has its own fair share of secrets to keep. One man stands in their way – SAS operator Tom Buckingham who is hiding somewhere inside the train. Alone and injured, he’s the only chance the passengers have to get out alive. Based on Andy McNab’s bestselling novel ‘Red Notice’ Source: British Council Film
Other projects, well that Sassenach Whisky is coming for Black Friday, so if you can handle the golden distilled elixir, go to the website and get on the email list. Available to ship in the US to certain states.
Sam hinted at some developments in filming Outlander Season 6, costume fittings are underway and getting ready for table reads for block one filming in January.
Very silly talks about Men in Kilts show, Clanlands Book about the series, Outlander, pet peeves, and the Trivia Deathmatch. Josh Horowitz interviews them about the Clanlands project Graham conceived and finally got down to doing this last year. Enjoy!
And Graham must eat or have a latte every two hours or there will be blood!
New York City Comic Con 2020 is back, however Outlander will not be officially participating as sadly, production is not even started for Season 6.

I don’t know about you, but there have been some magical gems with this Covid-19 isolationism of the last 7 months. One of them was undoubtably Tim Downie and David Berry podcasting from two sides of the world to give you insight to the machinations and craziness that is the beloved production of Outlander. Sadly this Sunday was the last broadcast of the podcast.
Wether Tim and David will revive it for season 6, we don’t know as Governor Tryon (Tim) is no longer in the storyline as the Governor has moved on to New York. Now, knowing how this series is about characters resurfacing, there is that possibility as the American War of Independence kicks in in the next two, we hope its three, seasons and well, Jamie and Claire may just bump into him again…However, readers do know that Lord John Grey does continue to grace the storyline through a few more books, not to mention his own series of books.
That being said, the two final installments included Suzanne Smith, casting director for Outlander, gives an insight to casting on the series. Not to be missed! Susan Smith Casting
It’s the last of the summer wine? Or the best for last? The last in the Outlander Summer Web Series was with Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, catching up and discussing the charity Doctors Without Borders and answer a few fan questions. Also spirit animals, the mysterious Lady M, and more.
Back in March, film production shut down all over the world with COVID-19 lockdowns. Sam and Graham’s new show Clanlands had finished the majority of the filming for the new Series on Starz®. Happy to report the Starz App has a preview placeholder for the series that showed up recently. And of course, Starz decided the show needed a name upgrade to Men in Kilts.
Sam and Graham have been posting on Instagram these last two weeks some great BTS shots. They were finally able to get together again and they are finishing up filming that was planned before the lockdown, and possibly filming for a second season? We’re waiting on the details for that. Lucky for us they spent the time in lockdown putting their book together for the series, that is being released in November this year. If you haven’t been to Scotland before, it’s sure to wet your appetite for travel to this fantastic country.
