“`The BBC is producing a three-part sci-fi mini-series The War of the Worlds, based on the classic novel by H. G. Wells. The story remains one of the popular and most adapted works of contemporary science fiction.

“`Unlike previous on-screen incarnations, like Steven Spielberg’s 2005 adaptation that took a number of liberties with the original story, or the 1953 flick set in Los Angeles,  this new BBC iteration stays true to the period and setting of the original novel as it’s the first version to be set in the same location as the original novel. It’s the initial version to be set in London during the Edwardian period.

“`The new mini-series will air on BBC One in the UK this fall. However, ITV Studios has distributed the show to a number of additional countries. Details to follow.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
