WUFT Gainesville, Florida - channel 5
Saturday at 5PM - The Awakening - movie version
A woman decides to follow her instincts, ignore her family, romance a man who'll abuse her, and eventually commits suicide. (Sorry, wrong story.) Actually, it's a 5th Doctor adventure. When the TARDIS crew tries to visit Tegan's grandfather, they find a village recreating a devastating battle from 1643. And Tegan's grandfather has disappeared. About 50 minutes.
