War of the Worlds is coming this Autumn. Check out the first trailer

We might not have Doctor Who this year, but the BBC is still pulling out all the stops with two lavish productions coming this year. Not only are we getting the long-awaited TV adaptation of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, but we're also getting a lavish production of HG Wells' War of the Worlds.

The BBC have unleashed the first trailer, which teases the arrival of the Martian tripods in the traditional Victorian setting. The series is headlined by Rage Spall and Eleanor Tomlinson.

There's no release date yet, though the BBC has confirmed it will air this Autumn.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
