Sherwood Sound Studios are pleased to announce the release date for The Coming of the Martians, our faithful audio adaptation of H. G. Wells’ 1897 martian invasion story The War of the Worlds starring award-winning actor Colin Morgan (Merlin, Humans, The Living and the Dead).
The Coming of the Martians will be released on 21st August, 2017. We held an estimated release month of July 2017 since our London recording date on 31st March with the intention to release on 31st July. However, due to the huge amount of work needed for this story and the additional material for the Limited Edition releases we have made the decision to push back the release by just 3 weeks.
We really don’t want to rush these and produce anything less than spectacular!
This does mean that those wanting to pre-order the Limited Editions from our site at special reduced prices have until 11:59pm on 20th August, 2017 before prices return to normal. These Limited Editions may sell out upon release, so if you’re a fan of the original 1897 story and want to hear, for the first time, an adaptation that remains truly faithful to H. G. Wells’ horrific vision…pre-order today.
We also have a new War of the Worlds page with information on this production.
