OPENING TITLES

Kevin

The Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time is running down and it's up to the Doctor to save the day and the night and the morning after and all of next week and everything after that.

Dr Poo

Are you sure you've got everything Dana?

Dana

Oh let's see. There's my piano, my chocolate coated map of Nepal, my orthopedic hat, my liquorice replica of Michelangelo's David.

Dr Poo

Look Dana for this adventure we have to travel light.

Dana

No piano?

Dr Poo

No piano.

SOUND OF Dana throwing out the piano

And Denis, I will not let you bring that symphony orchestra.

Denis

Meow.

Dr Poo

No!

Denis

Meow.

Dr Poo

All right, you can bring the woodwind section.

Woodwind SECTION

Oh goody, get your hand off my bassoon...

Dr Poo

Quiet! Now is everybody ready?

Crowd cheers

Stop! Dana, put that crowd back into the refrigerator at once.

Dana

O Doctor.

Dr Poo

At once!

Gonzales

Oh bum. Come on everybody, back into the fridge.

Crowd murmuring

Dr Poo

Now if you two have finally finished we'll get started. Our destination is the Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time. To reach it we climb through this grandfather clock.

Sound of Door opening and pendulum ticking

Follow me but be careful of the pendulum.

Sound of Everyone squeezing past the pendulum

There. Did everyone get through all right? Good. We are now inside time itself. Stay close together and keep your eyes peeled.

Kevin

Attention! The Doctor's instruction applies to only the characters in the serial. Do not, repeat, do not peel your eyes or you will not be able to see our next radio video of Dr Poo-oo!
