SCENE: Brighton Pier. The Couple are watching a paddle steamer flee to France over the horizon, as Martian Walkers advance on the port behind them.I'm not convinced by the look of the tripod from the new BBC thing, they've got blue LED's on the outside. I know blue LED's are very fashionable in sci fi right now but that doesn't mean sticking them on the outside of a tank is a good idea.
Still I hope it'll be good and not a soap opera with the Martians as an occasional menace getting in the way of Mrs Well's important suffragette work.
Husband: "We'd have been on that bloody paddle steamer if you hadnt felt the need to lecture every refugee we met on sufferage, religious tolerance and diversity."
