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 Sherlockā€™s Rupert Graves, and was adapted for this new version by Doctor Who and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell scribe Peter Harness.
