The Whale

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - CHRISTMAS DAY -

A grand old BBC1 Christ­mas drama from last year, this tells the true story of the sink­ing of the whal­ing ship Es­sex – an in­ci­dent that in­spired Moby-Dick. Martin Sheen plays the hoary old-timer re­call­ing his time on the un­har­mo­nious ship, and Charles Fur­ness (left) is his younger self.
