Sixth Officer Moody was Junior Officer of RMS Titanic.


Moody was 6′ (1.83 m) tall, white male. He had short, brown hair and brown eyes. During his appearances on the show, he wore an officer's cap and uniform.


He is on the bridge during Chief Officer Wilde and First Officer Murdoch differing viewpoints on the ships speed and is still present in the bridge when he answers the lookouts call of an iceberg in their path and repeats their warning to First Officer Murdoch and witnesses the collision with the iceberg.

During the evacuation of the Titanic, he tries to hold back the Italian waiters of the à la Carte Restaurant and Bruce Ismay orders them not to be on deck thinking that they'll frighten the female passengers

Later on, he ventures down into Third Class to check on the situation involving the passengers and the fate of waiters from the à la Carte Restaurant, and even reminds Steward Turnbull to let them out of the room they are locked up because thinks by locking them up is going too far with Ismay's orders. Later Mario Sandrini sees what is happening and gets into an verbal fight with Moody and Turnbull over locking the Steerage passengers below deck which Moody response with it being company policy, this prompts Turnbull to open the gate and force him into the crowds so the two sailors can lock him with the waiters, however Peter Lubov and the other male Third Class passengers are able to get past them and keep the gates open for them. Moody tries to call out for order from the crowd, but as the more people rush up the stairs to get to the lifeboats he slips and slides against the railing of the stairway.

The mini-series doesn't show his death.


Like most of the officers on the Titanic, Moody is an officer who follows orders from the captain or his superiors. While he is not above keeping back the Steerage passengers, he does question about the treatment of the Italian waiters.

Historical accuracyEdit

It is highly unlikely that Moody would have been below decks in the Third Class space or in the B-deck hallway were he and Ismay talk about the Italian waiters, he stayed on deck during the sinking of the Titanic and ultimately died in the Atlantic Ocean.
