TV: Titanic

Since the trailer aired on Christmas day, the television world has been abuzz with talk of ITV’s forthcoming four-part drama retelling the events of the famously doomed voyage.

Written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes (most recently of Downton Abbey acclaim), this production will focus on the people behind the Titanic, weaving stories of real Titanic passengers into the narrative. Expect romance, action, mystery and tales of heroic courage – and of course stunning sets and ground-breaking special effects – in what looks set to be a fitting commemoration of a momentous occasion.

Catch Titanic when it starts on ITV1 in March.
