The Wreck of the Titan
‘It’s the biggest ship the world has known – and in just twenty minutes’ time it’s going to hit an iceberg the size of Ben Nevis!’
The North Atlantic is a treacherous place at the best of times. 14 April 1912 is the very worst of times. The Doctor and Jamie find themselves trapped aboard the RMS Titanic, 400 miles off Newfoundland and heading towards a conclusive appointment with destiny.
But the iceberg isn’t their only problem. Down in the inky depths, something is hunting: something huge, hostile and hungry. This should certainly be A Night To Remember.

- The Wreck of the Titan was the one hundred and thirty-fourth monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions
- The story shares its title with Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan, a novella by Morgan Robertson that was published in 1898, but which eerily predicted many aspects of the 1912 Titanic disaster. A 1912 reprint of the book is featured in the narrative.
