Time Machine meets WotW with a hint of Dalek
A very entertaining melding of HG Wells' War of the Worlds and The Time Machine. Is this the "true story" of what actually happened? I guess we may never know.
Told in a slightly quirky Victorian style in keeping with its late 19th/early 20th century setting, it does take a little time to get going, but if you're fans of the original works, you'll find this a charming "alternate history".
The audiobook is brilliantly narrated by Barnaby Edwards, well known in Dr Who circles both as the actor inside the daleks and as a writer/director for the Big Finish audio range.
