Did it never occur to anyone at the BBC that The War of the Worlds has never really been done properly, to the original script?

No?

Bit of a mess this shit...so diluted by period drama and pointless backstories that it's barely recognisable.

I see that they chopped up and burned every swastika they used on the show.

Apparently it was every item of Nazi paraphernalia, not just the swastikas.

You should see the reviews on IMDB, most of which are shockingly bad.

One remake I'd like to see by HG Wells, would be The Time Machine and hopefully not screwed around with.
