What is The North Water TV series about?

The story is set in 1859 and centres on Patrick Sumner (played by Jack O'Connell of Skins and This Is England fame) a disgraced ex-army doctor searching a job to help get him back on his feet. After being discharge from fighting with the British Army, he meets the whaling ship magnate Baxter (Tom Courtenay) who offers him a job on The Volunteer.

One of Sumner's sea companions is Henry Drax (Colin Farrell)–a cold blooded killer and a ruthless opportunist who is the polar opposite of Sumner in almost every way. Despite his skill as a master harpoonist, he is not someone that you'd want cross.

The mens' journey on The Voyager is a doomed from the start since Baxter intends to sink the ship to claim an insurance payout. Captain Brownlee (played by BBC drama regular Stephen Graham), and firstmate Cavendish (Sam Spruell) are the two crewmen who intend to help Baxter with his plan.
