When Laura Donnelly auditioned for the part of Janet "Jenny" Fraser, she found an old schoolmate would be her partner, Sam Heughan. They had previously attended acting school together. Later they would play sister and brother, Janet and Jamie Fraser.
Author Diana Gabaldon credits watching Frazer Hines in the Doctor Who serial The War Games (and finding him fetching in a kilt) as the inspiration for setting her first novel, Outlander, in 18th-century Scotland, and for naming the novel's male protagonist "Jamie". (However, she says that the character's surname, "Fraser", is a coincidence, as the PBS station on which she watched Doctor Who habitually cut off the episode's credits, so she did not learn Frazer Hines' name until several years after Outlander was published.)
