Dr. Wakefield (and Roger) in Outlander

By Diana Gabaldon

Dr. Wakefield (and Roger)

The Good Doctor

The Reverend Wakefield is Frank's friend, who helps him with his genealogy charts. He also has an adopted son, Roger, who makes Claire wonder if adoption would be a nice thing for her and Frank to do (Frank disagrees). We don't have much to say about the Reverend and Roger here, but—spoiler alert—they'll be important in later books in the series.
