Derek Jacobi and Hayley Atwell lead an all-star cast in The Martian Chronicles, a thrilling new dramatisation, reimagining Ray Bradbury's timeless fable of doomed Martian colonisation. When the first expedition to Mars mysteriously disappears, Earth sends a second to find out what happened. But the real mission is classified. And only Captain Wilder knows the truth...Spender, an anthropologist on Wilder's crew, attempts to prevent the colonisation that she believes will eradicate the last of an ancient people living on Mars. But to what lengths will she go? As the honourable but duty-bound Captain Wilder tracks the now rogue Spender into the Martian mountains, the future of this ancient planet is at stake. Meanwhile, Earth itself teeters on the brink of its own global catastrophe as the very survival of humanity hangs in the balance. Also includes a special behind-the-scenes mini-documentary with interviews from the stars, plus six special teasers examining the Martian culture! This new audio version of the Ray Bradbury Sci-Fi classic recently won the Silver Award for Best Drama Special at the 2015 New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards.Derek Jacobi is one of the legends of British TV and film, best known for starring in I, Claudius (1976), the first Master when Doctor Who returned in 2005, and is busy on screens at present in Vicious and Last Tango in Halifax. Hayley Atwell is best known now as Peggy Carter, in US action series Agent Carter, but there have been notable earlier roles in Black Mirror, The Prisoner and The Sweeney.
