'This is the story of Mars and the people who lived there. It’s always fractious and untidy, it’s frequently tragic and on occasion both horrifying and beautiful. But there’s a constant bass note of wonder to each of these stories, a sense of something truly alien. That’s the spirit of Mars, and of the original book. And it’s alive and well in this remarkable achievement.'
Alasdair Stuart, Sci-Fi Bulletin
'Derek Jacobi turns in a subtle, nuanced but incredibly powerful performance as Captain Wilder.'
Jane Anderson, The Radio Times
'Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles is a work of surreal beauty and this production does a good job in condensing matters down to a coherent single drama... an admirable rendition of a classic.'
'Boasting an impressive cast, pacy direction and phenomenally atmospheric sound design, it’s certainly a polished production.'
Dave Golder, SFX Magazine
'Derek Jacobi’s central performance as the honourable space Captain is involving and there’s admirable support from a passionate and emotional Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) as Spender.'
Ian McArdell, Cult Box
