ENGLISH au­thor HG Wells be­came known as the fa­ther of sci­ence fic­tion, thanks in part to his 1897 novel The War

of the Worlds.

It’s one of the ear­li­est books to tell the story of a con­flict be­tween mankind and an ex­tra-ter­res­trial race. When a strange ob­ject lands in the heart of Eng­land and hatches, the in­hab­i­tants of Earth find them­selves un­der at­tack from ruth­less aliens armed with heat rays and poi­sonous smoke.

This epic new two-part adap­ta­tion stars Eleanor Tom­lin­son and Rafe Spall (pic­tured) as George and Amy – a cou­ple de­fy­ing the prej­u­dices of so­ci­ety as they at­tempt to start a life to­gether while swerv­ing the chaos of an alien in­va­sion.

Robert Car­lyle and Ru­pert Graves also star.
