Thread Name: BS: War of the Worlds film by the BBC (2018)
Subject: RE: BS: War of the Worlds film by the BBC (2018)
The Internet Movie Data Base webpages have now got a pageholder for
the BBC1 three-part miniseries.

The official title is
THE War of the Worlds, which some of the sci-fi geeks out there
are very insistent about. I mean to say, about the definite article.

Nobody is telling, even now, WHEN the broadcast will be.
What the IMDB page does tell is how many episodes the named actors appear in.

The scientist Ogilvie, played by Robert Carlyle:
Only one episode -- the first one.

"Frederick," whoever that is, played by Rupert Graves:
Only one episode -- the first one.

Eleanor Tomlinson and Rafe Spall, the two romantic leads so to speak:
all three episodes.
She's "Amy,"
he's "George."

For what it's worth,
the character of "George Jr." is played by Woody Norman,
in the third and final episode only.

There are a quantity of actors I never heard of
who appear only in the first episode.

Someone else who shows up only in the third and final episode,
"Red Planet Survivor," is one Michelle Donockley.

Jonathan Aris, the son of actor Ben Aris,
is absent from the first episode;
in episodes two and three,
he plays a "priest," no character name given.
