The Outlander series is taken from the series of books and the story is adapted to make the popular Starz show fans know and love.
Following the story written by Diane Gabaldon, the TV show explores the lives of Jamie (played by Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe).
She is set to release her ninth book of the franchise soon with a view to a season six of the show.
However, show producer Toni Graphia has revealed there is one scene, although small, from the books that she wishes she could have played out on the show.
Speaking to Digital Spy, she admits: “There’s a conversation, I think, from maybe even in book 1 where Jamie is looking at the trees at Lallybroch, and he has this beautiful speech where he tells Claire, ‘I know this land so well.’
“‘I know these trees. And I know when it’s going to rain, because the leaves turn a lighter shade of green, because the leaves turn upward, and you see the underside of the leaves.’
“It’s just this beautiful speech about how much he loves his land, and how well he knows the trees and the land.
“And it stuck in my mind so much that I put it in about four scripts to try to get it in. And then sometimes those smaller moments are the ones that get cut if the episode’s running long. And then I try to put it in somewhere else.”
Fans would no doubt have loved to have seen that scene played out as they cannot get enough of the Claire and Jamie dynamic.
Given that he is referring to Scotland in the scene from the book and the couple now live in America in the TV show, it would be difficult for her to place the scene in somewhere else.
You know, there’s a way to make it work
However, Toni has a plan to get around this if she can.
She added: “For some reason, that particular one has stuck with me. I’m determined to get it in somewhere. I have a problem now because we’re in America, so he can’t really say, ‘I’ve known these trees for many years’ like he did in Scotland.
“But I’m trying to change it to say, ‘This is my new land, and I know it so well, and I’ve come to love it. I know the trees so well, I know what colour they turn.’ You know, there’s a way to make it work, so I’m determined to do that.”
The producer has also suggested the popularity of the show may give the producers a Game of Thrones problem to solve.
They face the prospect of potentially catching up to the books and demand meaning they have to create their own stories that are not from the books.
Although, with the criticism, the writers of Game of Thrones season eight have faced it is not a prospect she will relish.
Meanwhile, fans can see unseen Outlander footage for the first time.
Sadly, it is not a season five trailer, but instead, it is unseen season four bloopers.
The bloopers are available on the season four Blu-ray and DVD and it’s on there fans can see the unseen footage.
One scene sees Sam trying to act out a line and instead of perfecting the line, he stumbles on it and attempts to almost spit it out because he cannot say it properly.
Outlander season five is expected to return to STARZ and Amazon Prime Video later this year.
