Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The original four-part miniseries written by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey, Gosford Park) marking the Titanic’s 100th Anniversary.

Brought to life by a stellar, award-winning ensemble cast, this extraordinary re-telling of the doomed voyage reveals a world built upon class distinction – headed towards destruction as surely as Titanic towards the iceberg. From the aristocratic elite to the officers, crew, second class and steerage passengers, TITANIC follows the destinies of both victims and survivors as their stories of passion, betrayal and hope unfold amidst the tragic events of that fateful evening.

INCLUDES 2 HOURS OF BONUS MATERIAL:
Six Making-of Featurettes, Titanic: Behind-the-Production, “The Curse of the Titanic Sisters” Documentary
Episode One Audio Commentary with writer Julian Fellowes, producer Nigel Stafford-Clark and director Jon Jones

The BBC miniseries Titanic approaches the famous disaster in a cunning and evocative new way: each of the first three episodes starts before the launch and follows different characters through to the ocean liner's collision with the iceberg, slowly unfolding more information and approaching scenes from different perspectives--until the final episode follows everyone as the ship begins to sink, to powerful emotional effect. Some characters are from history (the ship's crew, Hollywood starlet Dorothy Gibson) but others are fictional, and writer Julian Fellowes (creator of Downton Abbey) explores the collisions of wealth and class through these fictional characters: the wife (Geraldine Somerville) of the Earl of Manton (Linus Roache) is appalled to share a table with a middle-class lawyer and his wife (Toby Jones and Maria Doyle Kennedy); an Italian steward (Glen Blackhall) avidly pursues a ship's maid (Jenna-Louise Coleman) through the first- and second-class decks; an electrician who helped build the ship (Peter McDonald) fights to keep his family together in steerage, even as his wife (Ruth Bradley) finds herself compulsively drawn to a mysterious, violent stranger (Dragos Bucur). These and other storylines are slowly joined together like puzzle pieces, until a larger picture of loss and hope is unveiled. This format has its frustrations; getting more of stories that were only touched on in previous episodes makes you aware of how much more could be revealed, and some intriguing characters get left on the sidelines--but there's only so much they could fit in. The culminating horror and sadness of the final episode is wrenching and well worth the journey. Extras include the usual making-of puffery, but a documentary about the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, which also sunk under mysterious circumstances, is fascinating. --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

I had bookmarked the DVD set to buy when it came out.
James Ellison
I think it is difficult to play around with anything that has its basis in fact because too much has been written about the Titanic.
G.I Gurdjieff
The issue of social class was handled rather heavy-handedly, making it seem as if one social class looked upon the other as pariahs.

I am a historian, but I have also fairly accepted all Titanic movies and TV shows. So I will tell you about the Pros and Cons about this series and you can decide if you like it or not.

First off, let me say that I liked it. This series presented a new dynamic to seeing the Titanic and it also presented new real people who were on the ship (the Wideners, the Duff Gordons, and Dorothy Gibson are some examples). However, the first thing I will talk about is how the series is set up. The first three episodes have generally so many different points of view that are happening on the show. This is an awesome new way to look at a TV show, but you may not like this new style and thus the whole way the series is filmed will not be good for you. So in the end I liked this new dynamic, but depending who you are you may not like the way it is filmed with various point of views.

Now what are the plots? The good news is that this series did not generally rip off the popular James Cameron Titanic movie. This series does not really have a person from one class falling in love with another. Instead, there is a story in each class. The first episode will be off course first class where the wealthy elite of society are. The main character is the Earl of Manton is travelling with his wife Lady Manton and daughter Georgiana. Before the the voyage, Georgiana had ended up in jail and her father had to get her out. So Manton hopes to keep his daughter away from England while he goes to business in New York City. He also hopes she finds a husband. They also end up in conflict with some people who work for them in second class.

The second class story stars John Bately and his wife Muriel. John finds out his employer, the Earl of Manton, will be on board travelling first class.

I was quite excited when I heard that Julian Fellowes had signed on to write a new miniseries exploring the legendary Titanic tragedy. Fellowes is the reigning champion of upstairs/downstairs drama as evidenced by his Oscar winning screenplay for Altman's "Gosford Park" and his wildly successful production of "Downton Abbey." While that upscale soap opera is currently all-the-rage, it seemed a prime opportunity for Fellowes to branch out. Without a doubt, the class divisions, struggles and tensions aboard the Titanic certainly appeared to match his previous themes. And yet, while the idea seemed like an easy home run, "Titanic" (for all its elegance) is lacking in character drama that makes one actually care. The passengers on this ill-fated voyage are only superficially presented and their back stories are largely uninspired or entirely predictable. While there are still some good elements to "Titanic," therefore, I never felt the time investment in watching the four part miniseries paid off in any appreciable way.

The shortcomings of this particular trip rests almost squarely on the unimaginative screenplay. While I liked the idea of the overlapping structure of the show (each part presents different characters during the same pivotal time frame), it was an interesting narrative device that really didn't amount to much. The huge cast is impressive, but the characters lack dimension. A few stand-outs include Linus Roache (perhaps my favorite character, seen only sporadically after the first episode) as a progressive Earl, Toby Jones (always reliable) as a second class passenger dealing with a disappointed wife (The Tudor's Maria Doyle Kennedy in the series' most thankless role), and Glen Blackhall as an Italian immigrant working on the ship.

Since I first fell in love with the stories surrounding the ill-fated ocean liner at age thirteen, I have read and watched anything I can get my hands on pertaining to the ship. For someone who knows nothing about Titanic, this miniseries by Julian Fellowes may prove illuminating if at times downright misleading, but it is certainly nothing to write home about.

With the suffragist movement sweeping across England, Lord Manton (Linus Roache) has been having trouble keeping his daughter Georgiana (Perditia Weeks) in line. Her most recent escapade has landed her in the local lock-up, and out of desperation he decides that a change of scenery might do her some good. Enlisting the assistance of friend Bruce Ismay (James Wilby) to book Georgiana a first class cabin on the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic, he hopes that a stint in New York will put her mind to better uses than feminism. Also on board, in second class, is his employee John Batley (Toby Jones) and his wife Muriel (Maria Doyle Kennedy). It doesn't take long for Muriel to clash with Lady Louisa (Geraldine Somerville) and let out secrets Lord Manton did not want made into public knowledge.

Meanwhile, stewardess Annie (Jenna-Louise Coleman) is being wooed by an Italian last-minute steward Paelo (Glen Blackhall), who fears that once they land in America he may never see her again. The servants of the Grex family share a secret that could endanger them both, an anarchist has set his intentions on another man's wife in steerage, and Second Officer Charles Lightoller (Steven Waddington) must cope with a shuffle in position, as well as the challenges the night presents as it wears on.
