Outlander explained: What was the inspiration for Captain Black Jack Randall?



The author said: “And obviously, he’s a pervert, with sociopathic tendencies, and that doesn’t mean he is incapable of love – he loves his brother – and people say, oh well, sociopaths don’t really feel love, they just get positive reinforcement from someone, and that is what they think is love.”

On her website, Gabaldon has also labelled Captain Black Jack as a “sadistic bisexual pervert”, which suggests he is attracted to both men and women.

From Gabaldon’s words, Captain Black Jack is more intricate than people might perceive him to be.

Even though he was killed off in season three, Outlander ventures through time and he pops up in the novel Written in My Own Heart’s Blood.

In the novel, he comes into contact with Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin) with readers again getting to see a different side to the character.

Outlander season 7 will premiere in summer 2023 and seasons 1 to 6 are streaming on Lionsgate+ now
