The penultimate episode focuses on servants and working-class types, though you’ll be thrown by the opening scenes of Winston Churchill blustering after the Siege of Sidney Street. There is a point to this, but you’ll have to wait a while.

Passengers have been aboard only briefly, yet it’s been long enough for some to forge liaisons. Like the demure Irish wife of the ship’s electrician, who has captured the heart of the swarthy fella who roams around in a big vest. Class loyalties are tested, and the newly betrothed say tender, wet goodbyes.


Italian stoker Mario blags a job on the Titanic for his brother Paolo, who is instantly smitten with cabin steward Annie, and as the ship sets sail he startles her with an impulsive gesture. Barnes is surprised to find Watson loitering in steerage, while Mary lets her guard down with Peter Lubov, much to the anger of husband Jim. But any arguments are set aside when the ship strikes the iceberg - and fear quickly builds for the third-class passengers as some of them are behind locked gates.
