Tonight | The North Water on ABC and ABC iview

The North Water on ABC – Disgraced ex-army doctor Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell) joins The Volunteer as a ship’s surgeon, hoping to lose himself in the tough physicality of an Arctic whaling trip.

But the ferocity of the elements is matched by the violence of his crew mates. In particular, is Henry Drax (Colin Farrell), a harpooner, and a distinctly brutal force of nature.

As the true purpose of the expedition becomes clear, confrontation between the two men erupts taking them on a journey far from solid ground and way beyond the safe moorings of civilisation.

Starring Jack O’Connell, Colin Farrell , Stephen Graham (The Walk-In), Tom Courtenay, Peter Mullan.


After persuading Brownlee to let him examine Drax, Sumner makes a gruesome discovery that sends Drax into a murderous rage. Subdued at gunpoint, Drax is chained to the ship’s mast.

The Volunteer heads North where the growing ice traps the ship and it begins to look as though Baxter and Brownlee’s duplicitous plan will soon take hold.

The crew head out on to the ice but must soon take shelter from a coming storm. Help is in sight, but can they truly rely on it?
