I was extremely disappointed with this 2017 dramatized version of War of the Worlds which is one of my favourite sci-fi audios . It seems like a cheap production lacking good sound effects and therefore was not even thrilling to listen to . Plus I got slightly confused with the characters . And this version was rather short time wise. The last dramatised version 2007 by the BBC was vastly superior in sound effects and atmosphere and character build up and is still available on audible .

A slow decent into madness

So much better than that film with the same name starring Tom Cruise.

Set in England during the Victorian era.

Another great BBC audio drama adaptation. Superb.
