H.G. Wells’s alien invasion classic The War of the Worlds has been adapted in various ways – as an alarming radio broadcast by Orson Welles in 1938, two feature films, Jeff Wayne’s incredible orchestrated take, and now a BBC mini-series that hones very close to the novel.
Rather than setting things in modern times as most previous adaptations have done, this three-parter is set in the Edwardian era, where invaders from Mars – and the tech with which they’re armed – would be truly mind-boggling. Rafe Spall, Eleanor Tomlinson and Robert Carlyle are among the quality Brit cast fending off the martians.
