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.
