Outlander’s ever expanding writers’ room

I checked DG’s facebook post for the episode of Down the Rabbit Hole and found it curious that she didn’t reply to any comments except one. I hadn’t checked it in a long time but I remember she usually replied to quite many, at least in the first day or so. And this is what she replied to.

The poster said, “It’s almost like an internship is going on”. How apt! So I went and looked at the writers over the seasons and here are the numbers:

S1

No. of episodes: 16

No. of writers: 5

Writers: Ron D Moore, Toni Graphia, Matt B Roberts, Ira Steven Behr, Anne Kenney

S2

No. of episodes: 13

No. of writers: 7

Writers: Ron D Moore, Matt B Roberts, Ira Steven Behr, Anne Kenney, Toni Graphia, Diana Gabaldon (1 episode), Richard Kahan (1 episode)

S3

No. of episodes: 13

No. of writers: 8

Writers: Ron D Moore, Matt B Roberts, Toni Graphia, Anne Kenney, Joy Blake, Karen Campbell, Luke Schelhaas, Shannon Goss

S4

No. of episodes: 13

No. of writers: 9

Writers: Matt B Roberts, Toni Graphia, Luke Schelhaas, Shaina Fewell, Bronwyn Garrity, Shannon Goss, Karen Campbell, Joy Blake, Jennifer Yale

So not only is it an ever expanding writers’ room, but they’ve let go of someone like Anne Kenney, who gave us The Wedding in S1, but also brought in and kept, people like Karen Campbell (of Creme de Menthe, and Do No Harm fame). The inconsistency and slipping standards are plain and painful to see.
