The Uninvited is a British television science fiction mini-series, created by Leslie Grantham and written by Peter Bowker, that first broadcast on ITV between 25 September 25 and 16 October 1997. The series was co-produced by Zenith Entertainment and Anglia Television. The series was filmed in and around Norwich, with scenes filmed at the University of East Anglia, Norwich Magistrate's Court and the offices of the Eastern Daily Press in Norwich city centre. The series was novelised by Paul Cornell and published by Virgin Books. (ISBN 0-7535-0220-8). Cornell, a huge fan of the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who (who at that point had written several licensed novels based on the programme), cheekily included a cameo appearance at the end from Doctor Who character Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, although the character is unnamed in the book. A soundtrack album accompanying the series, with music composed by Martin Kiszko, was released on 6 October 1997 via Ocean Deep Records. The complete series was first released on VHS on 26 January 2000, followed by a DVD release on July 28, 2003. The DVD combines the four fifty-minute episodes into two feature-length episodes of 100 minutes each.
