Two of these are on Facebook, so I can't embed them directly here as I don't have a FB account. Also, the sound at the start is bad, but does kick in.

The first one is Sam discussing his recent partnership with Barbour as their global brand ambassador. So it's all about that, very little about Outlander. I think he mentions they've finished filming the first two episodes of Season 3, and that's about it.

The second one is with Bazaar. This is the one with the sound issues at the start. This one talks about Outlander (and other things, such as his partnership with Barbour, so there's some overlap with the first one). One interesting thing we learn is that they expect to finish shooting season 3 in May, and in SOUTH AFRICA! That's where Black Sails films, of course, so that does sound as if they're going to be using the Black Sails ships and sets.

The last one is a print interview with Elle magazine.

Has this been posted yet? First photos of Lord John Grey on set via "The Rank and File" on Twitter:

Out of the blue this morning, I get followed on Twitter by Ryan Ralph Gerrard, a young Scottish actor. I have no clue who this dude is -- never heard of him. However, going through his Twitter feed, it reads like he's been cast in Outlander S03, but can't yet reveal who he is going to be playing.

Does anyone want to speculate? I toyed with the idea of older Fergus, but he's a bit young for that (20) and Fergus is in his 30s in season 3. Plus it would make sense to get another French actor for that role since Fergus will still have a French accent and speak fluent French. Maybe Young Jamie (Jenny and Ian's oldest)? What do you think?

This is sort of inspired by my earlier post asking about the Lord John novels because a few people noted that Lord John was actually their favourite character. I guess it's sort of assumed that everyone's favourite character is Jamie-Claire (it's seems like one should consider them a single entity), but is that the case? If your favourite character really is Jamie-Claire, who is your favourite non Jamie-Claire character? If Diana ever wanted to start a new line of spin-off novels similar to the Lord John Grey books, whose adventures would you like to read about in more detail?

Alternatively -- which character(s) do you with she'd just kill off (or had never created in the first place) because you really can't stand them?

I've been re-watching season 2, this time with my husband (first time viewing for him). Last night was episode 209, wherein we meet the young Lord Grey for the first time.

Which made me wonder, why did he call himself William Grey at that time, but in future books (and I assume in season 3 and onwards), he uses the name John? I know his full name is John William Grey, but was it ever explained anywhere why he switched from using William as his first name? If it was explained in one of the Outlander books, I don't remember that bit.

I know that some of you are fans of the BBC series Poldark. I came across a very interesting article by the show's historical consultant on how she approaches each episode and the types of questions she must consider.

You may have heard/read in the news this week that the long-lost ship of British polar explorer Sir John Franklin, HMS Terror was found at the bottom of bay in the Canadian Arctic.

What you may not have heard/read is that AMC is producing a 10-episode series about the HMS Terror/Franklin expedtion called The Terror, and that Tobias Menzies has been cast in the lead role. (Note that the article incorrectly refers to Outlander as "The Outlander".)

The AMC series is scheduled to air in 2017. Really looking forward to it!
