Publisher's Summary

John Wyndham's classic tale of monsters from the deep, alien invasion, and ecological disaster comes alive in this full-cast BBC radio dramatisation. At first, the fireballs seemed to be nothing more than a dazzling display of lights in the sky, plunging into the deepest oceans and disappearing without trace. But when ships started sinking inexplicably and the sea-lanes became impassable, it seemed that the world was facing a threat of unprecedented proportions.

Incessant pillow talk smothers story

Interesting story marred by incessant pillow talk and glib reporters. When it's the end of the world from an alien invasion you would think that people would act differently.

Old Time Sci Fi

I did not like it very much. It was stylized like an old radio show, but it just did not translate well that way. And it developed slow.
