There are a number of Outlander-related stories that we do need to get through this Wednesday morning and they start with this: Filming is still underway at the moment in Scotland! While there hasn’t been as much said about it publicly in a little while that doesn’t exactly mean that things are slowing down at all. The folks behind the scenes of making the show are just being extra-secretive.
For a little tease on the subject of filming conditions, just take a look at what executive producer Maril Davis stated on the subject in the latest edition of her “Heard on Set” tweet series. While we recognize that the weather is going to be a tad different depending on where some of these actors are in Scotland, as of right now in Glasgow it’s reportedly right above freezing and the midst of a snowy and rainy day. (We sympathize with this given that to us, there is absolutely nothing worse than that temperature where snow doesn’t really stick and just because a muddy, frothy mess that is impossible to wander around in.)
Despite the most-unwelcome weather, filming is continuing as we enter the final months of season 4 production. It is set to conclude in June so at this point, the cast and crew are in the final run of episodes for the season.
Celebrating the upcoming DVD / Blu-Ray release
The season 3 collection is officially set to debut on April 10, so as of right now Sony’s Home Entertainment division is doing their best to promote the collection. That led to executive producer Toni Graphia and author Diana Gabaldon appearing at an event in Los Angeles; meanwhile, that also led to Entertainment Weekly releasing a new scene featuring David Berry as Lord John Grey speaking with Isobel Dunsany on the subject of one Jamie Fraser. You can see rather vividly the care that Lord John has for Sam Heughan’s character, coupled with the sadness that is lying underneath the surface. Who knew that a conversation about chess could lead to being even more complex? The layers are what make Outlander so great; we understand that scenes get deleted all the time, but this is one we could’ve easily seen left in the show.
We feel like we’ve made our love of Berry and the Lord John character rather clear as of late, and we wish that we got to see a little bit more of him over the course of season 3. Hopefully, there are going to be some more ways to include him in the future — while we know it’s probably impossible when it comes to just how much work the production team is already doing, we do like to imagine a world in which there is a Lord John spin-off show out there.
