The Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time (3/29)
The Doctor and Dananana, accompanied by the woodwind section
of the Algerian Symphony Orchestra, with Denis the Denim Cat on comb and paper,
have all clambered through the Turdis's grandfather clock and are now inside
At the centre of time is the mechanism that controls the
passage of all events and their regularity.
No Dana I'm talking about a clock. The Great Universal Cuckoo
Clock of Time and it needs winding. That is our mission.
O I've always dreamed of being a missionary.
No Dana, we're in a much more difficult position than your
ordinary missionary. When I mounted this expedition I knew it was going to be
hard but I have a feeling it will get harder the further in we go.
Will it still be hard coming back?
No Dana it will be easier coming than going. I'll unravel
this bowl of spaghetti so we can retrace our steps. Right, have you got it?
No you've got it. I've got the meatballs.
Ah good. Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time Expedition,
MUSIC: Rolling Stones - Time is on my side
I love these old marching songs.
(Dana steps in something)
What's the matter Dana?
I just stepped in something Doctor.
O it's just one of those Salvador Dali melted clocks.
O I've got half past six all over my shoes.
That'll wipe off.
SOUND OF Dana wiping her shoes
Oo yuck. Now I've got time on my hands. Oh no, it's all
right, its run through my fingers.
What was that time you stepped in Dana?
Half past six.
Ah, then it's dinner time. Share the time out Dana.
Give us a minute will you. Ah, lovely time.
We'll have a nice time.
Anyone for seconds?
Ah yes, yes.
Well times up and it looks delicious. So set your timetable, put on your napkin for our next time consuming episode of Dr Poo-oo!
