Outlander wins Radio Times TV Show Champion 2015

The US time travel show, screened on Amazon in the UK and filmed in Scotland, fought off stiff competition from Hannibal to "do the double" in TV Champion after star Sam Heughan won the individual tournament this summer

Its leading man Sam Heughan claimed TV Champion glory in September and now Outlander fans have “done the double”, voting their show to victory as Radio Times TV Show Champion 2015.


The time travel drama, set in Scotland, stormed the Sci-fi Show Champion competition back in November before entering the ‘champion of champions’ tournament where it faced Entertainment Show Champion Only Connect and then Children’s Show Champion Sarah and Duck on the way to the TV Show Champion Final.

That concluding clash of the TV titans saw Outlander up against NBC’s cancelled Hannibal, with the voting consistently incredibly tight thanks to a huge amount of support from both ‘Clan Outlander’ and ‘The Fannibals’.

The day was to be Outlander’s though, and the show ultimately achieved TV Show Champion glory in a competition that garnered more than 25 million votes, with more than 7 million votes in the final.  


Our congratulations to Outlander and the Clan, our admiration to The Fannibals and a huge thank you to everyone who took part in TV Show Champion 2015. Have a very merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you on RadioTimes.com in 2016.
