BBC has announced several new upcoming series, including a three part series based on the novel The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. Scheduled to enter production next year, the show will be set in the Victorian era.
The series is penned by Peter Hartness (Doctor Who). Mammoth Studios’ Director of Production, Damien Timmer, has said that even though the book has been adapted several times before the series will be a fresh take on the classic, “no one has ever attempted to follow Wells and locate the story in Dorking at the turn of the century.”
In the novel a narrator watches what he believes is a series of shooting stars that turn out to be metal cylinders carrying martian invaders.
