The pair star in the BBC One series, which is produced by ITV-owned Mammoth Screen, alongside Trainspotting’s Robert Carlyle and Sherlock’s Rupert Graves.
The series, which filmed in Liverpol, was adapted by Wallander’s Peter Harness and directed by Craig Viveiros (And Then There Were None). It airs later this autumn.
Produced by Betsan Morris Evans (The City & The City), the series is the first adaptation set in Edwardian England, rather than America, and follows George, played by Spall, and his partner Amy, played by Tomlinson as they attempt to defy society and start a life together against the escalating terror of an alien invasion. Graves plays George’s older brother Frederick, while Carlyle stars as Ogilvy,
