Part of Jamie Fraser’s (Sam Heughan) past, Tom Christie was also a prisoner at Ardsmuir, where the pair were sent following the Jacobite Uprising in Season 3. Old tensions continue when the devout Protestant brings his family to Fraser’s Ridge to settle.

Malva is Tom’s lively daughter who quickly becomes captivated by Claire’s medical work and slips into an apprenticeship under the Fraser matriarch. But Malva’s fascination with Claire’s modern mindset could get her into hot water with a conservative father like Tom. Allan is both headstrong and wary of strangers, his protective side is reserved for his family as they move into the unfamiliar environment that is Fraser’s Ridge.

Don’t miss the Christies when they shake up Fraser’s Ridge in Season 6, and in the meantime, tide over your Droughtlander by tuning in for Men in Kilts with Heughan and former Outlander costar Graham McTavish.
