After a huge meteor strikes Horsell Common in Surrey, England, the inhabitants of Earth face a vicious attack by an unknown alien race. Amidst the chaos, George leaves his loveless marriage in the hope of starting a new life with Amy, despite the condemnation of the community around them.

But for George and Amy, alongside every other human on the planet, this plan is suddenly interrupted when they soon find themselves fighting for their survival against a ruthless enemy beyond their comprehension – an enemy determined to destroy humanity and conquer the planet.

Adapted by Peter Harness (Doctor Who), this visceral thriller delivers a riveting and atmospheric collision of science fiction, period drama and horror – bringing one of literature’s most notorious foes vividly to life.

The War of the Worlds is available to pre-order on DVD on Amazon.
