TV tonight: the whole world is adrift at sea in the whaling drama The North Water | Television and radio


Northern water

9.30 pm, BBC Two

Everyone in Andrew Haigh’s arctic whaling drama is running from their past, why else would they have found themselves in such a desperate place? But redemption feels unlikely for any of these lost souls as they drift away, both literally and figuratively, from the mainstream of normal society. Jack O’Connell’s Sumner almost anchors things, but tonight he starts to get a bad feeling about Colin Farrell’s monstrous Drax, and with very good reason. Visually, verbally and emotionally lacking and even more surprising for it. Phil Harrison

Rocky (John G Avildsen, 1976), 22:45, ITV

Slugger Sylvester Stallone in the role that made him a star. It’s a silly tale of humble boxer Rocky’s penchant for the title against champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) – artificial but also inspiring, and the big fight is a lulu. There is great support from Burt Young, Burgess Meredith and Talia Shire as their love, Adrian. Paul Howlett
