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 ...

Chapter 8! Dead London! Or should it be, dead? London? Or maybe dead! London. As you'll see, there's a bit of death, but is it the metaphorically beating heart of Victorian Englands beloved capital, or is it the as of yet un-identified hearts of the Martian invasion? There's only one way to find out!* Basically, there's a lot happening narratively,…
 
Just a quick little update to so that THIS WEEKEND I'll be bringing the live show to BRIGHTON! If you're a South Sussex dweller, or you want to go to a coast that the Martians failed to take in their invasion, why not come and enjoy everyone's favourite live show about War of the Worlds and also all the remakes of the War of the Worlds? Tickets: ht…
 
We're back! The Martians have gone no where! But whose this lurking around Putney Hill? Is it an old friend who we shared a meal with and gave us expert advice on looking for biscuits? I won't insult your ignorance with such leading questions. Alongside the ropiest cockernee accent this side of Dick Van Dyke, we're joined by the polymath comedian, …
 
Hey! What a year! WHAT A YEAR. It's nearly over, but there's still time to say thanks to all of you for listening to the podcast over 2021. The final chapters are well underway and I can't wait to share them with you HOPEFULLY out before the first LIVE SHOWS! Come see me at Leciester Comedy Festival: https://comedy-festival.co.uk/event/edy-hursts-c…
 
A little update about the next few chapters of the narration, with a delay from the usual regularity to make sure that we end it just as well, if not better than we've started and carried on this whole dang thing. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.द्वारा Edy Hurst
 
What do you recon you could do in 15 days? Bring all your mates from Mars, take over the earth and accidentally plant some red weeds? The narrator is leaving the house where he's hunkered down, and checks out the local wildlife. Will he successfully eat a dog? Will the dogs successfully eat him? I doubt it, there's another 4 chapters. Plus, a deep …
 
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 …
 
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…
 
How many Martian tripods does it take to screw in a light bulb? We're heading to the first town in Britain to be wholly lit by electricity (Weybridge) to find out in the next action-crammed chapter of the War of the Worlds. Plus this week we've got two deep dives! One on the history of travel food via biscuits and the other on how the hell you can …
