The North Water is a BBC Two five-part television series, based on Ian McGuire’s novel of the same name.
The series premiered on AMC+ on 15 July 2021.
With the Hastings nearby, the Volunteer continues further into ice fields. Sumner believes that McKendrick is innocent due to a hand injury that would’ve made it impossible for him to strangle Hannah. Brownlee is unmoved, but allows Sumner to examine Drax. Brownlee notices a gash on Drax’s arm, and when examined Sumner discovers part of a tooth embedded in the wound. Discovered, Drax fatally bludgeons Brownlee with a whalebone cane. Jones saves Sumner by threatening Drax with a rifle; Drax is imprisoned and McKendrick set free. Brownlee dies from his injury and Cavendish takes command. Colliding the ship with an ice floe, Cavendish purposely sinks the Volunteer with indirect assistance from Drax. The crew abandon the ship and split off into a small group, consisting of Cavendish, Sumner, Otto, McKendrick, a chained Drax and two other men remaining with the sinking ship and the rest, including Jones, travelling to the Hastings. After the Volunteer sinks and a stormy night, the group discover the Hastings has sunk and all the crew are dead.
