7 shows to watch if you love Outlander

If you are a huge fan of Outlander, it can be a huge pain waiting for the new episodes during ‘Droughtlander’, as fans like to call it. As such, we have gathered the best shows to keep you going while you want for Jamie and Claire back on your screens. From time-travelling capers to

A Discovery of Witches
Time travel? Check. Handsome, seemingly ageless heroes? Check. A good dose of unexplainable magic? Check! A Discovery of Witches follows a college professor, Diana, who begins to discover that she is actually a descendant from a line of witches, and who falls in love with a vampire, Matthew.

In Madison, Satu, Knox and Gerbert arrive at the Bishop house to find that Matthew and Diana have disappeared only moments earlier, and based on the fact that they have abandoned their modern-day clothes deduce they are hiding in time. Matthew and Diana crash into 1590’s London and are immediately confronted by a face from Matthew’s past: Kit Marlowe. Diana realises instantly that the 16th century Matthew Roydon is a different man to the one she fell in love with… There is no time to settle in, as Matthew must report to his boss, William Cecil, who pressures Matthew to resume his former occupation – spying for the Queen. At her new home of the Hart and Crown, Diana’s mind turns to finding a teacher, as she stumbles upon Sophie’s ancestor – Susanna Norman. To Diana’s dismay, Susanna rejects Diana and refuses to help after Diana’s magic frightens her with its power. Diana and Matthew bring home an orphan boy, Jack, who they find in Water Lane, and Diana discovers Matthew’s secret; he is a spy, hiding his Catholicism whilst hunting fellow Catholics on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. Kit warns Diana that inhabiting his past self will have untold effects on Matthew and he may change beyond recognition.

Ashes to Ashes
A woman who falls through time and falls in love with a figure from history? Check and check! In this case, Alex Drake isn’t entirely sure if she is in a coma, dead, or has actually travelled back in time, when she is paired up with maverick 80s’ detective Gene Hunt. The will-they-won’t-they is enough to keep you watching, not to mention the brilliant police storylines!

My Love from the Star
This Korean drama follows an ageless alien, Min-Joon, who has been forced to wait 400 years on earth to be picked up by his own species. However, in the months before he is finally due to be taken home, a wayward, chaotic actress, Song-Yi, moves in next door. Prepare to get heavily invested in the melodrama and swoon at their love story in equal measure!

Hindsight 
Becca is struggling with idea of having a second wedding, and finds herself wishing that she’d done things differently. Cue her waking up in 1995, with some incredible 90s looks, and giving her the chance to do her adult life over again. This show was shockingly cancelled after one season – but what a season it is!

11.22.63
Based on the Stephen King novel, the story follows Jake Epping, a teacher who travels back in time to 1960 in order to prevent the assassination of JFK. Much like whenever Jamie and Claire try to disturb the natural order of the future, things don’t quite go to plan…

James Franco as Jake Epping

Doctor Who
Even if sci-fi isn’t your cup of tea, we defy you not to enjoy Doctor Who time travelling capers, particularly the romantic era of Rose Tyler and River Song. Don’t even get us started on the iconic love story of Amy and Rory! The show has it all; time travel-themed relationship troubles, couples falling in love as they meet each other out of order, a mismatched pair coming together after facing off alien statues (we see you, Carey Mulligan). If you have never been interested in giving it a go, now’s the time!

Sleepy Hollow
What instead of travelling to the past, the past comes to the future? This is the premise of Sleepy Hollow, in which agent Ichabod Crane accidentally travels to 2013 from 1781, where the Headless Horseman is still at large. Working with Detective Abigail Mills, they do what is takes to bring him down.
