The first episode of Blue Planet II had everyone watching in tears

The walrus mammy and her baby? Could. Not. Cope.

Damn you, Attenborough!

We can endless footage of other humans getting into harm’s way without so much as blinking, but any time David shows us some cute animals getting into peril?

BAM! Water works!

Blue Planet II saw the return of Attenborough’s brilliant nature documentary series, and alongside some uniquely beautiful images of the world’s ocean’s dwellers, there were some scenes that single-handedly raised local sea levels.

Because of all the tears, you see.

The next episode airs on BBC One on Sunday 5 November.

We’re not entirely sure we’ll be emotionally recovered by then.
