On October 30th, 1938, Columbia Broadcasting System aired Orson Welles’ The War Of The Worlds, a series of simulated bulletins that left the city of Manhattan in a frenzy, believing that there was a real alien attack transpiring.
The story takes on new significance in Invaders From Mars when, after attempting to travel to the year 1930, the Doctor overshoots slightly and arrives in New York with Charley. Stumbling upon a dead private detective, the time-travelling duo are soon caught up in a sinister plot involving a Russian scientist, a disfigured mobster, a suspicious Fifth Columnist and Orson Welles himself.
As events take a turn far stranger than fiction, it becomes increasingly apparent that the Halloween broadcast of The War Of The Worlds may in fact have been a very real account of a devastating alien invasion.
Invaders From Mars is another captivating Doctor Who audio drama from Big Finish Productions, starring the likes of Simon Pegg, India Fisher, Jessica Stevenson, Jonathan Rigby and Mark Benton, as well as Paul McGann as the eighth incarnation of the Doctor.
Teeming with nearly two hours of high quality entertainment, this action-packed story is now yours to own on CD or MP3 audiobook.
