More information about the upcoming mini-series The War of the Worlds, really can’t wait to see this and iMDB posts that Robert will be in 1 episode. We are hoping for more!
Production is underway on the the first-ever British television adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The War of the Worlds,” with the aliens set to invade Britain later this year. Filming is taking place in Liverpool on the three-part BBC drama, which will star Eleanor Tomlinson (“Poldark”), Rafe Spall (“The Big Short”), Robert Carlyle (“The Full Monty”) and Rupert Graves (“Sherlock”).
Unlike Steven Spielberg’s movie adaptation, the series is true to the classic novel’s English setting and follows George (Spall) and his partner, Amy (Tomlinson), as they attempt to start a life together. Graves is Frederick, George’s elder brother, and Carlyle plays Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist. The show follows them as they face the escalating terror of an alien invasion.
“It’s fantastic to have Rafe and Eleanor leading such a brilliant cast of British acting talent in the BBC’s faithful adaptation of H.G. Wells’ legendary story,” said Tommy Bulfin, BBC commissioning editor.
“H.G. Wells’ seminal novel has been adapted for the screen many times, but it’s always had a contemporary (and American) setting,” said director Craig Viveiros. “This is the first version to be set in London and [its environs] during the Edwardian period.”
Writer Peter Harness (“Wallander”) added: “The version of ‘The War of the Worlds’ that I wanted to make is one that’s faithful to the tone and the spirit of the book, but which also feels contemporary, surprising and full of shocks: a collision of sci-fi, period drama and horror.”
ITV-backed U.K. producer Mammoth Screen is producing. ITV Studios Global Entertainment is handling international sales.
Happily for all the fans who has bought tickets – Robert will attend The Happy Ending Convention in Paris, France on May 6th. We are sure it will be a day to remember!

Filming on the three-part drama, which is produced by ITV-owned Mammoth Screen, has started in Liverpool with Wallander’s Peter Harness adapting the classic H.G. Wells alien invasion story.
The War of the Worlds will be directed by Craig Viveiros (And Then There Were None, Rillington Place) and produced by Betsan Morris Evans (The City & The City).
The series is the first adaptation set in Edwardian England, rather than America, and follows George, played by Spall, and his partner Amy, played by Tomlinson as they attempt to defy society and start a life together against the escalating terror of an alien invasion. Graves plays George’s older brother Frederick, while Carlyle stars as Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist
The War of the Worlds is executive produced by Damien Timmer, Preethi Mavahalli, Peter Harness, Craig Viveiros and Tommy Bulfin. ITV Studios Global Entertainment will be responsible for international distribution.
Tomlinson said she was delighted to be “taking on the martians” with Spall. “I’ve been a fan of Craig Viveiros’ work for a while, so creating this world with him at the helm is very exciting” while Spall called it a “much loved” story.
Mammoth Screen boss Timmer added, “Here we are, making the original and best alien invasion story for the BBC One audience – it doesn’t get much better than this. With a stellar cast and some very scary Martians up our sleeve we look forward to terrifying large sections of the audience soon.”
Craig Viveiros said, “H.G. Wells’ seminal novel has been adapted for the screen many times but it’s always had a contemporary, and American, setting, this is the first version to be set in London and the Home Counties during the Edwardian period. Peter’s scripts manage to honour the source material with great skill, but we aim to provide a thoroughly modern thrill ride for the audience, delivering an alien invasion story that will shock and awe audiences across the globe.”
Robert tweeted and thanked us for our birthday wishes and here is the wonderful video several fans put together for him. Really great job by everyone involved! 🙂
