This is it. The one you've been waiting for, and if it's not too arrogant, I really like how I announced its arrival. It was important to me. What do you reckon?

The narrator's young brother must flee London as the relentless martian obliteration approaches the capital.

Desperation has gripped society, however, and he must literally fight those for whom civilisation already no longer holds meaning.

During this chapter I realised that some of Wells' most boringly named ones have the most banging Martian vs humans battle sequences in the story.

We're also introduced to the 'black smoke' cannisters, one of, for my money, science fiction's most inventive weapons.

The action swings to the narrator's younger brother back in London.

Over the course of a day the great metropolis goes from mild interest to city-wide hysteria as it's flooded with martian refugees.

"What good is religion if it collapses under calamity? Think of what earthquakes and floods, wars and volcanoes, have done before to men! Did you think God had exempted Weybridge? He is not an insurance agent."

A gripping scene meeting the Curate, who is a dramatically different character to Parson Nathaniel from Jeff Wayne's adaptation of this story.

***This is a re-upload of Book 1: Chapter 12. For some reason the end was cut off the last version, so here it is again. Apologies if it messes up your play order.***

The invaders decide they'd rather Weybridge and Shepperton not exist in a literally scorching set piece of destruction from the godfather of sci-fi.

It's at this point you wonder if, deep down, Wells just really liked describing humans getting messily annihilated.

In a five mile radius outside of the sand pits, people were near oblivious to the burning massacre.

The Martians begin a friday night project altogether more apocalyptic than anything involving Alan Carr or Justin Lee Collins.
