"Woking, 1905. George (Rafe Spall) and Amy's (Eleanor Tomlinson) relationship is a scandal. They are a painful embarrassment to George's brother Frederick (Rupert Graves), an upstanding servant of the British Empire, and pariahs in their own neighbourhood. Their only friend is local scientist and fellow outcast Ogilvy (Robert Carlyle). When a mysterious capsule lands one night on Earth at Horsell Common, George, Amy and Ogilvy are the first to examine it. However, as more people gather to study the unusual object it quickly becomes clear that this is no inanimate object fallen from the sky – but a transport for a living, fighting organism from outer space. As more people gather to study it, it lashes out and kills scores of people. And so begins a terrifying ordeal, as more capsules land on Earth and release a horde of murderous Martian tripods which stalk England exterminating and consuming everything in their wake. As wave upon wave of Martian invaders land on Earth, mankind faces an almighty fight for survival. In amongst the chaos, George, Amy, Frederick and Ogilvy must put their personal difficulties aside as they attempt to hold onto their humanity."

I really liked it. I've been waiting so loooong for a period specific version of the book to come out!

I'll wait for the reviews.

Loved that they'd made it in period, but then it turns out that the leads are 21st century in terms of values and behaviour – completely ruined it for me. I determined to stick it out at least until the Martians showed but just couldn't stomach the ‘Demelza' character and switched off.
