One of the Outlander scenes fans were most excited to see involved Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) seeing his sperm while looking in Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) microscope. The moment was certainly entertaining but some of the dialogue from Diana Gabaldon’s novels, which the show is based on, was cut.
Diana explained she thought fans would miss the dialogue as it is such an important scene to them.
When asked if there was a particular scene in Journeycake, which she wrote, that she was excited to adapt, it was easy for Diana to decide.
She explained: “There were three, actually. Two of them were iconic scenes from the books, so that wasn't a matter of adaptation.
“It was more like how much of each scene can we use, because there is limited time.

“So I put in the whole scene [from the book], and they would trim pieces off of it.
“The first scene that comes to mind is the scene with the microscope.”
Diana continued: “They trimmed off the last bit of dialogue, and people probably miss that, but they'll enjoy the scene, regardless.
“And then there's the window sill scene, of course, which I had a lot of fun with. That comes before the microscope scene, for obvious reasons…”
