The November issue of SFX has a page reviewing the recently released Outlander blu-ray. It’s quite funny they explaining why would Outlander to be reviewed on their pages (SFX is a sci-fi related publication), and mentioned the time travel bit, but also how brilliant the story is.
Balfe is superb as Claire, who is smart but blindly stubborn, which causes as many problems as it solves. Heughan, meanwhile, couldn’t be better suited to the role of Jamie – sweet, sincere and fiercely dedicated to the woman he loves. The methodical pacing of their slow-burn relationship won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but you won’t find a better couple on TV.

As you may know, Sam Heughan was the big winner of Radio Times TV poll, after over 120 million votes. They published this week a cover story featuring Sam, and I added the Outlander bit in our gallery.

Glamour Italia: August 2015
By Caterina Clerici
I TRAVEL THROUGH TIME
Caitriona Balfe, the Outlander’s star,is hitting the big time in Hollywood. And after shooting with Clooney and Julia Roberts, she’s ready to return to Scotland. With specific ideas, some style tricks and few regrets.
One thinks that some things can happen only in an episode of Sex and the City. Instead you can just walk in the West Village in New York with Caitriona Balfe (pronounced Catrina; it’s a Gaelic name) to suddenly glance at your side a coach with the advertising of Outlander, where she is the leading actress, exactly what it happens to Carrie in the unforgettable theme song. But Caitriona does not stumble: she mirrors herself in her image and smiles. “Thanks to the photo editing the scene seems almost heroic”,she says. “But looking at it I can only recall that my ass was freezing that day in the mountains of Scotland”. After leaving Ireland at 15 years old, entering the fashion industry as a model, last year she has been mentioned by Entertainment Weekly among the twelve Hollywood’s rising stars. Thirty-five years, 1.77 cm tall, a perfect body, icy stare and reminiscent features as Cate Blanchett, one of the actressess she likes more.

The Irish actress on time travel and her upcoming film with George Clooney.
As a model, Caitriona Balfe was well accustomed to disrobing in front of a crowd. Now that she’s an actress, playing the unabashed Claire in the wildly popular Starz show Outlander, the 35-year-old has discovered she isn’t quite as adept at being naked as she would have liked to think. “It’s a very different beast,” the Dublin native says. “As an actress, you want to be brave and go as far as you can. But sometimes, afterward, you wish you hadn’t been as brave, like when you’re watching and thinking, Oh, God.”
Based on the best-selling novels by Diana Gabaldon, the series, currently shooting its second season, follows Claire, a former World War II nurse who time-travels from 1945 to 1743 in Scotland. In the midst of political unrest, she becomes entangled with a Highlander, all while trying to return to the 20th century. Balfe was doing Margaret Thatcher impressions by the age of 4 and went on to study theater. But when she was scouted by a modeling agent at 18, the promise of international travel proved hard topass up. She doesn’t regret the detour. “I didn’t have the life experience or maturity in my 20s to bring what I can now to acting,” she says. Her next role, opposite George Clooney in Money Monster, is a PR exec for a financial company. “That was almost more alien to me than the time-traveling nurse,” she says with a laugh. “I was like, What do people do in offices all day?”
