Opening titles

KEVIN

The Doctor and Dana have packed their luggage, and lugged their packages away, after another grueling episode, and are now relaxing. The Doctor is in a contemplative mood. I think.

DR POO

Do you remember, Dana...?

DANA

Yes, I remember Dana.

DR POO

Listen you twat we're reminiscing. Think back, Dana - what was your favourite adventure?

DANA

Well I think -

DR POO

Yes, I knew you'd say that: the Khans! What a wonderful bunch of mongrels they were.

DANA

I always had a soft spot for Neville Khan.

DR POO

Don't be disgusting, Dana. Personally, I always thought he was a bit light on top.

DANA

But he made up for it elsewhere!

DR POO

Come off it, Dana. You know very well that you and Neville never actually engaged in horizontal soap dancing.

DANA

(Crying)

Oh, Doctor, how can you be so cruel?

Crashing sounds

DR POO

Dana you're going to pieces. And I've just cleaned the carpet.

Crashing sounds cease

Pull yourself together. How about a boiled sweetie?

(Dana howls)

Alright! How would you like to go back and see Neville Khan?

DANA

(Brightening immediately)

O, Doctor! Could we? Doctor! Could we?

DR POO

Well, we've still got 24 hours before the next episode, and besides, I'd like to see my old cobber Genghis Khan.

DANA

Neville's father?

DR POO

Yes - a mongrel after my own heart.

DANA

Didn't he have one of his own?

DR POO

Sometimes I think you miss the whole point of life. You used to annoy me, Dana, but, after 140 episodes, you just irritate me intensely.

DANA

Oh, that's the nicest thing you've ever said to me, Doctor.

DR POO

All cistern's go!

Turdis landing noise

KEVIN

Uh-oh, back to the Khan Ages again! Just when I thought I'd got all the Mastodon hair and sand out of my BBB's! Stand up for the next excruciating episode of Dr Poo-oo!
