9/10 "A fine envisioning of Wells’ story and a strong end to the line – for now." SciFi Bulletin
"In this adaptation the true spirit of the original book is ever present and superbly cast. Richard Armitage & Lucy Briggs-Owen as Herbert & Amy respectively bring a real honesty and a lot of heart to them. This story is a classic for a reason & this version is perfectly dramatised & directed by Nicholas Briggs." Indie Mac User
5/5 "The cast are all compelling in their roles, with Richard Armitage showing the capabilities he has brought to his many audiobooks and documentary narrations. It’s a highly recommended release and a superb conclusion to this exceptional run of HG Wells stories." Cultbox
