Roger, is that you?!

Richard is having a seriously busy time at the moment as he is also filming season five of Outlander. Chatting to Radio Times about what to expect from the upcoming series, he said; "Season five, we essentially pick up where we left them. There's a little passage of time, but there's a lot going on for all of the characters, and there's a lot of new relationships to be forged." The show's official Twitter account shared a first look at the new series on mid-April, writing: "Your first photo from Season 5 is here, clan! #Outlander. Hello? 911? We'd like to report an emergency. Our heart rate still hasn't gone down from looking at this photo and it's been over an hour."
