Intro to The Khan Ages (3/3)
Friends, Romans and worshipers of the wonderful Poo, lend me
your ears, and your cheque books, because the Doctor and his old drinking mate,
Genghis Khan, thirsting for classical knowledge have stumbled into a local
(Dr Poo & Mongrels singing - 'Show me the way to go to
And stumbled out again!
I do love these cobble stones flints, don't you, Genghis?
Cobbles to you, Poo.
(The khans laugh raucously)
Tell me, Poo, where're you staying the night?
Actually I can't stay.
O, pity. You'll miss all the learning, and burning -
Yeah the boys are having a house-warming.
(Neville and Dana run up)
Help! Dad! Help!
Neville! Here I come, ready to -
(She yelps. pause.)
Ow, who kicked me?
I had to, Dana. We've got to be going, and the last chariot
leaves in five minutes.
Et tu, Doctor.
Actually I ate three - I was very hungry. Thanks for the
drinks, Genghis, we've got to be off.
Where are you off to, Doctor?
Well you see my accountant advised me that my financial
position is looking a bit sticky, so I thought we'd take a holiday for four
weeks while he sorted it out.
Four weeks, eh?
And which way are you going, Genghis?
We thought we'd tourist through Gaul and wind up in
Britannica before the pubs shut.
O it's a rotten pity - we're off in the opposite direction.
(Under his breath)
Just as fast as we can.
Come on, Dana!
O but I want to stay with Neville!
O alright, Dana... Go and get your things out of the Turdis.
She opens the Turdis door
See you in a month, Genghis!
Poo closes the door
Doctor? Have you seen my... Hey!
All cisterns go!
TURDIS LANDING NOISE
Right Dad. I'm glad that dappy bird's gone. She looks like
the south end of a northbound mastodon.
You could do a lot worse, Neville.
Yes, I suppose I could. But who wants to marry a slug?
Shut up, Neville.
The Doctor and Dana have gone off, like an over-ripe Reg
Grundy Production, and I've got my brochures, towels, sun tan lotion, so
Waikiki here I come! O wait a minute I nearly forgot my shots.
Argh, that's better. But don't forget, kids, listen in
tomorrow for: The Khan Ages!
