What a finale to a superb series. Richard Armitage and Lucy Briggs-Owen provide the emotional core of this epic, terrifying story as the husband and wife on the run from the unstoppable Martian menace, so easy to empathise with. Indeed all of the characters are so very human and believable, even down to the utterly reprehensible and cowardly/deranged curate, which isn't to say that people are not also depicted at their best (take a bow, the crew of the Thunderchild).

Kudos to Nick Briggs for a stunning adaptation and direction, and to all others involved, particularly Iain Meadows on sound design - the sound of the Martian heat ray will haunt me for ever.

The HG Wells range has been outstanding in every way that that word can be applied. It is only a shame - to say the least - that it has come to an end.

Another cracking listen in this first class range, superbly adapted by Marc Platt. If you're familiar with the 1960 Rod Taylor movie, the plot of the first half is very close to it. But the second half (after the most chilling cliffhanger in the range yet) goes off into largely new territory, with a compelling and thought-provoking ending. The social commentary is a little dated in places, but this is a faithful adaptation of a novel published in 1895, so no marks off for that.

The HG Wells series continues with another cracker, but of a different kind. This is a tale that's much more horror than sci-fi, with some truly gruelling sequences that make for uncomfortable listening at times. It's also a story unalloyed by humour, so don't expect to be cosseted in your fear. Just be ready for a dark, thrilling, scary treat.
