‘Outlander’ is a series based on the successful literary saga of Diana Gabaldon that, within a somewhat corseted genre, adds an irresistible element that differentiates it from the rest: that of the science fiction through time travel (It is no coincidence that the creator of this adaptation is Ronald D. Moore, the mind behind ‘Battlestar Galactica’, one of the great science fiction series of the 21st century)
