First look: The War of the Worlds

Finally, the BBC has released the first trailer for forthcoming drama The War of the Worlds.

The series has been delayed for about a year, but it looks like it’s finally ready to arrive on our screens this autumn.

This version of HG Wells’ classic is set in Edwardian England, with a young couple called George and Amy (Rafe Spall and Eleanor Tomlinson) getting mixed up with the discovery alongside an astronomer called Ogilvy (Robert Carlyle).

The series also stars Sherlock’s Rupert Graves, and was adapted for this new version by Doctor Who and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell scribe Peter Harness.
