Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 21st August 1998:
KTEH 54 in San Jose, California will present the 2 episodes of The Awakening Sunday night at 11PM. The 5th Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough try to visit Tegan's grandfather in the village of Little Hobcome. But he's disappeared, and the town has been sealed up. Also, War Games in the town seem to be getting out of control. What has happened to Little Hobcome? The Doctor doesn't like the answer. The show will air in episode format. I don't know if there will be pledge breads, but set extra time on the VCR just in case.
