When the first expedition to Mars mysteriously disappears, Earth sends a second to find out what happened. But the real mission is classified. And only Captain Wilder knows the truth...

Spender, an anthropologist on Wilder’s crew, attempts to prevent the colonisation that she believes will eradicate the last of an ancient people living on Mars. But to what lengths will she go?

As the honourable but duty-bound Captain Wilder tracks the now rogue Spender into the Martian mountains, the future of this ancient planet is at stake.

Meanwhile, Earth itself teeters on the brink of its own global catastrophe as the very survival of humanity hangs in the balance.

The Martian Chronicles is a B7 Media Production

This title is no longer available to buy from the Big Finish website; all purchases made prior to 30th September 2021 remain accessible via My Account or the BF App.

Derek Jacobi and Hayley Atwell lead an all-star cast in a thrilling new dramatisation, reimagining Ray Bradbury's timeless fable of doomed Martian colonisation. This release includes a special behind-the-scenes mini-documentary with interviews from the stars, plus six special teasers examining the Martian culture.


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. 10/10

Scifi Bulletin

Derek Jacobi turns in a subtle, nuanced but incredibly powerful performance as Captain Wilder.

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.

Starburst Magazine

Boasting an impressive cast, pacy direction and phenomenally atmospheric sound design, it’s certainly a polished production.

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.
