The Midwich Cuckoos (BBC radio sci-fi) (2007)

Set in the remote village of Midwich the story tells of a series of unexpected pregnancies and subsequent births which all occur on the same day. Each child the ability to communicate telepathically, a power which gets stronger as the children grow older.

Despite the recentness of the production it retains a lot of the feeling of classic 1950’s sci-fi. Stylishly directed the dramatisation is especially noteworthy for Nighy’s understated performance.
