Minor changes have been made to adaptation

Unlike others, The War of the World’s BBC adaptation has only minor changes compared to the original novel. The BBC adaptation has a time period and setting similar to that of the original novel, with no changes made to it.

Director Viviros stated that The War of the Worlds has adapted to the screen several times but always in the American setting but is the first time it is based in its original Edwardian period.

Only Amy and George’s character is a new addition to the series.
