Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Musical Drama
- An Audible Original Drama
- By: H. G. Wells, Jeff Wayne
- Narrated by: Michael Sheen, Taron Egerton, Theo James, and others
- Length: 5 hrs and 4 mins
- Original Recording
One of the world’s most recognisable sci-fi stories, H. G. Wells’ The War of The Worlds established numerous conventions for the genre, including the threat of an invasive extraterrestrial species, space travel and intergalactic conflict, inspiring directors, gamers, producers and writers alike with its sobering story of struggle and survival. Marrying the suspense, drama and urgency of Wells’ original novel with Jeff Wayne’s rousing and flamboyant score, Audible’s new and exclusive dramatisation uses action, narration, original music and evocative sound design to immerse listeners in a world that’s as thrilling as it is desolate.
Wonderful production paired with a classic story.

Less music and more story make for something different with plenty of callbacks. Still great.
