Following my last piece about the new War of the Worlds sequel, I have found out, through the Radio Times TV listing magazine, that the BBC is making a new version of the original H.G.Wells book for showing 'later this year'.
According to the article this version will be firmly set in and around Edwardian London, will be a three part drama, and faithful to the tone and spirit of the book while also feeling contemporary, surprising and full of shocks. A collision of Sci-fi, period drama and horror.
Eleanor Thomlinson (Poldark's Demelza and Rafe Spall play the leads while Rupert Graves and Robert Carlyle have major parts.
I look forward to the CGI tripods and HMS Thundercloud.
