No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that the Earth was being scrutinised and studied from across the gulf of space. With infinite complacency, humanity went about its little affairs, serene in its assurance of its empire over matter. It is possible that the micro-organisms we watch under a microscope, do the same. Few people gave thought to the idea of life on other planets, and none imagined that it could be so vastly superior in intellect to ourselves. ...
 
Extraterrestrial invasion, the earth taken over by omniscient intelligences from Mars, the whole of humanity under siege and a nameless narrator who seems to be the lone survivor of the complete devastation of human civilization – scenes from a Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster? Far from it! The War of the Worlds by HG Wells was written more than a century ago and went on to become an iconic work in the science fiction genre, spawning a whole new genre of literature featuring alien invaders. It w ...
 
Science fiction. University students Olivia and Megan stumble into a fight they never knew existed against a force which demands justice for crimes nobody knew were committed. But regardless of their ignorance, a hidden city lies under the ocean with reason to be angry. The environment is playing havoc on the creatures who live there, and a war is brewing.

If there's one thing from Victorian Science that's aged about as well as a puddle of milk in a rain coat pocket, it's the theory of eugenics. We've talked a bit at the very start of the book about how much these ideas have been involved in H.G. Wells' writing, but to do it a little more justice, the fabulous Subhadra Das zoomed in to chat a little …
 
With the curate gone, and only the narrator home, what's the first thing he does? Drink dirty drain water and think about eating a dog? When the cat's away! This chapter we're joined by Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominated and telly bothering double act The Delightful Sausage. Amy Gledhill & Chris Cantrill are a hilarious grotty duo that you might have…
 
In what's been the biggest spoiler of a chapter title, and there's been a good few so far (I'm looking at you, destruction of Weybridge & Shepperton), we finally say good bye to our favourite frenemy, the Curate. We've laughed, we've cried, and now it's time to die. But how will it happen? At the hands of the narrator? Plus we've got a Greek-myth i…
 
We're taking an intermission from the story main this episode, but fear not! Banish fear, like an exorcised ghost or a used tissue, into the bin of courage. For whilst we don't have a chapter, we've got two very special songs. The first is an ode to carrots, as keen eyed listeners may have seen on Edy's Twitter, Instagram or Facebook And second is …
 
In what must be the least relatable part of the book for our entire generation, we find the Narrator and the Curate still stuck unable to leave the house. A sort of lockdown I guess, only it's Martians, and I don't want to cast judgement, but I've not seen a single mask or hand sanitiser in sight. It's an Edy only episode! We've got a song about pe…
 
Well, they're still stuck in the worst house share either of them have experienced, but don't worry, at least they've got a peephole to steal a glance out of. And what do they see? Well there's only one way to find out (excluding reading the book and all the other adaptations). This week we're joined by Graham and Ali from the British History podca…
 
We're back! Book 2, Earth under Martians. Earth (by which in the book we mean the 75 mile radius of London) is well and truly knackered under the Martians. Hampton Court? Barely any visitors. Big Ben? Forget it. London Eye? Not created yet, but if it was, it'd also be knackered. We return to find the narrator still knocking around with that fair we…

The Final of Book One is nigh! And let's go out of the half way point with a half way bang. Chapter 17 of The War of the Worlds sees us with the Narrator's Brother and the Ephinstone's at the end of the Country, in a desperate escape from an England invaded by Martians. We've got the ironclad Thunderchild, with it's sophisticated strategy of rammin…
 
As the Martians are going, quite frankly, feral, across the South West of England towards London, we continue with the account of the Narrator's Brother (still no name) and his escape from London. We also take a look at revolvers and the UK gun laws, how come so many folks in the book have 'em willy AND nilly? Joining us this week is the fantastic …
 
Wishing you all the superlatives of the season with this brief message and an uplifting Carol for 2020. Thanks to everyone for listening, subscribing and your kind words for what has been an absurd premise for a podcast. The final two chapters of Book One will be out soon! And later in 2021 get ready for book two: The Earth Under Martians RATE | RE…
 
In our fourth interlude we take a look at beloved futurist and socialist horndog H.G. Wells' slight misfires on predicting the future, and also air out a song inspired by the previous chapters, 'Black Smoke (it's no joke)' RATE | REVIEW | SHARE! Follow Edy Hurst on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all the latest on Podcast news, song…
 
We're back in Surrey after a brief trip to London, but for how long? Not only have the Martians unleashed the heat-ray upon the county, but now they've got a strange new retaliation to earth's firepower. If I didn't know any better, I'd say this was personal. As well as the chapter, we've got a fantastic guest song from Amelia Bayler, and a talk ab…
 
London, home of Big Ben, the underground and now the ever growing threat of a Martian invasion. As refugees from Woking and Surrey arrive, we join the narrator's brother to see his side of the story, and another of H.G. Wells' what's in the papers chapters. We also take a look at British exceptionalism - what is it? Why is it here? Has it ever led …
 
In this halloween special we read The Red Room, a short ghost Story by H.G. Wells. What apparition haunts the redroom of an old manor house? Is it the Duke, or is wife who was killed by a bad case of the spooks? Or maybe, the real ghost is the friends we've made along the way? Credits: Produced by Edy Hurst Written by H.G.Wells and Edy Hurst Theme …
 
It’s one of the most frightening pieces of audio drama made in the late 20th century, but we nearly nothing about how made it, how, or why. It’s a look at how a nuclear holocaust would unfold over the radio waves, and the influence of the 1938 broadcast of “The War of the Worlds” in undeniable. This is, “The Last Broadcast”.…
 
In the late 80s first run TV Syndication was in it’s prime! While there were a lot of notable series to start in that era, one series if often forgotten about – “The War of the Worlds”. In many respects, it may be best forgotten. But that was one episode in the entire series’ run that all War of the World legacy fans should check out.…
 
When the going gets tough, what do you do? Strip off to the waist and steal a boat in boiling water? If you're the narrator, yes! Also, we finally see the introduction of the Curate. To listeners of the musical, they may know the character as the Parson played by Phil Lynott. But what the heck is a curate? Where do they fit into the hierarchy of th…
