Cover reveal: The Martian Invasion of Earth

Cover reveal: The Martian Invasion of Earth

23 December 2017

Richard Armitage stars in this new adaptation based on HG Wells’s The War of The Worlds.

The Earth will fall victim to an unstoppable force. Coming out in February, HG Wells’s tale comes to life in an adaptation by Nicholas Briggs, featuring an incredible cast. Richard Armitage and Lucy Briggs-Owen play Herbert and Amy, a couple that fight for existence in a world that may already be lost…

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s

A curiosity falls to Earth on Horsell Common, and a nightmare begins. England is laid waste by huge fighting machines, armed with devastating heat rays. Humanity brings its own weapons to bear upon the invaders, but can they be any match?

Trapped in a war of two worlds, one couple battles to survive. Herbert and Amy will witness… The Martian Invasion of Earth.

Producer David Richardson told us more about this tale at Richard Armitage’s casting announcement back in October: “Nick is such a huge fan of the original novel, and his love and passion for the material shines through on every page of the script. It’s a glorious adaptation, and we’re blessed to have such a brilliant, huge star as our lead. I’ve admired Richard for many years, and to have him back at Big Finish in this production is very special for us indeed.”

You can pick up this latest tale of wonder from the genius mind of HG Wells, available for pre-order at £14.99 on CD or £12.99 on download.
