Steward Turnbull is a fictional Third Class Steward of the Titanic in the 2012 Miniseries and one of the main antagonists in the show.


Turnbull was 5′ 9″ (1.75 m) tall, white male. He had short, black hair and brown eyes. During his appearances on the show, he wore a standard white 3rd class steward's tunic.


He is portrayed as an arrogant steward who would rather leave the steerage down below decks, he even argues with fellow third class steward John Edward Hart who believes that they should rescue the women and children. Hart begins to realize the situation is getting out of hand and signals that he'll take groups of women and children to the boat deck when Steward Turnbull orders the Steerage passengers back, thus cutting off their escape route to the boatdeck. He pushes Jim Maloney when he wanted to have his family on deck, this causes Peter Lubov to gets into a fight with him (possibly trying to kill him in the process) so Mary Maloney and her children can get past the gate. After being saved by another steward, Turnbull locks the gates.

It is later revealed that he knows that the Italian crewmembers of the à la Carte Restaurant are locked away below decks, Sixth Officer Moody then tells him to let the Italians out when the order is given. Later Mario Sandrini is locked in with them when he tries to help the steerage passengers, but Lubov leads Jim Maloney to charge the gates and break out so they can get to the boat decks. We last see Steward Turnbull trying to leave the flooding corridors after he tells Paolo Sandrini where he can find the Italian crewmembers (but shows less concern for them).


Turnbull: "Will you all please stay calm. You'll be taken up on deck, very soon. There's no danger!"

Hart: "Why do you keep saying that when there's every bloody danger?!"


  • It is believed that he dies during the sinking, since he is not seen on Collapsible B and Collapsible A is not seen in the mini-series.
