Out on DVD and Blu-ray now, Keeley Hawes (Rebecca) and Max Beesley (The Outsider) star in the The Midwich Cuckoos, which finds the women of a small town becoming pregnant over one day.

Watch the trailer here…

Based on John Wyndham’s science fiction classic, The Midwich Cuckoos is set in Midwich, a quiet commuter town where nothing much happens. That is, until the twilight hours of a late summer’s day, when everyone within a set area of the town falls unconscious. The curious incident seems temporary and those affected regain consciousness, but every woman of child-bearing age inside the zone has suddenly and inexplicably fallen pregnant. As the children of the phenomenon grow, it becomes clear they are not of this world. 

We spoke to Keeley Hawes recently about the series, and her character Dr. Susannah Zellaby, which, in the original novel, was a male character: “It’s prime for an adaptation and a modern retelling,” she said. “The fact that my character was a man in the original and at the centre of this incredibly female story is very telling and it just wouldn’t seem right to make it in that way now.”

Now you can take home this modern reimagining of a sci-fi classic with our latest competition! We have one blu-ray and one DVD to give away – all you have to do is answer the simple question below to be in with a chance of winning.
