David Evans was Third Class passenger in 2012 Miniseries Titanic.


Before David boarded the Titanic, he was a former member of the Scots Guards. He had suffered a gunshot wound that forces him to retire. While on the Titanic, he notices Peter Lubov and engages him to see who he is. Peter only gets angry and tells David that he isn't someone that he knowns.

Following the collision with the iceberg, David gets into a argument with Steward Turnbull about why aren't they helping the Steerage passengers and is being held back by Steward Baxter. David at one points suggest to bring the children to the boat deck, but Turnbull rejects the idea. After Lubov gets into a fight to cause a distraction to allow Mary Maloney and her children to get past the gates and up to the boat deck, David tells Lubov that he knowns another way to the boat deck. Once they are away from the dining room, he grabs hold of Peter. He explains that he knows he is Peter Pietkov (also known as Peter the Painter) the violent anarchist leader who was responsible for the Sidney Street Siege in 1911. Lubov tries to talk him out of his vengeful wrath, reminding him the Titanic is sinking and that they should worry about that instead but David doesn't listen saying he cannot let go of the past. When that doesn't work, Lubov attacks David by slamming him to the wall. Lubov then puts Evans in a chock-hold and manages to crack David's neck, killing him.


When we first meet David, he appears to be a suspicious person who is trying to get to know Peter Lubov. This shows the audience despite retiring from the Scots Guard, he is still invested in his time as a Scots Guard to keep an eye on Peter whom he realizes is Peter the Painter.

Once the Titanic is sinking however, David is shown to show concern for his fellow passengers when there is danger present. He confronts with Steward Turnbull about why they are being kept below decks, which gives Steward Hart to question Turnbull his judgment about the situation.
