Summary
Follow George (Rafe Spall) and his partner Amy (Eleanor Tomlinson) as they attempt to defy society and start a new life together. Frederick (Rupert Graves), is George's elder brother and Ogilvy (Robert Carlyle), is an astronomer and scientist. A gripping collision of science-fiction, period drama and horror, this visceral thriller tells their story as they face the escalating terror of an alien attack after a huge meteor strike. As the inhabitants of Earth slowly fall victim to a vicious invasion, they must fight for their lives against a ruthless enemy beyond their comprehension, an enemy determined to destroy humanity and conquer the planet
