I thought this would be an interesting question, and I was right.  There were 3,467 responses to this month's poll.  Thanks so much to everyone who participated!



I was really surprised that Murtagh took an early and commanding lead.  I've never been much of a fan of Murtagh in the books; although he's a much more likeable character in the TV series, he's still not my favorite.  But obviously there are a LOT of Duncan Lacroix fans out there! <g>

I didn't vote in this poll, but I think I would have chosen Dougal.  I love watching him.

Please take a moment to vote in the February poll, which is all about how you found the OUTLANDER books.

There are such a lot of great characters. I agree that he is a much more likeable character in the TV series!

I learned to really like book Murtagh alot more after he helped Claire in her search for Jamie. And how can you not like him for his loyalty and love for Jamie?

Shifting the "Leery will always be a lassie" speech from Auld Alec to Murtagh made the difference to me. When Murtagh glares at Claire and says those words, I felt he had made up his mind that Claire was the one for Jamie. Also his comment about Claire's smile being like his memory of Ellen's sweet smile.

Having read the books and knowing that Murtagh was in love with Jamie's mother and thus spent the rest of his life trying to protect Jamie was what did it for me.
