OPENING TITLES

Kevin

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 time itself.

(Echo)

Dr Poo

At the centre of time is the mechanism that controls the passage of all events and their regularity.

Dana

Like All-Bran.

Dr Poo

No Dana I'm talking about a clock. The Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time and it needs winding. That is our mission.

Dana

O I've always dreamed of being a missionary.

Dr Poo

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.

Dana

Will it still be hard coming back?

Dr Poo

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?

Dana

No you've got it. I've got the meatballs.

Dr Poo

Ah good. Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time Expedition, ho.

MUSIC: Rolling Stones - Time is on my side

Dana

I love these old marching songs.

(Dana steps in something)

Oooh.

Dr Poo

What's the matter Dana?

Dana

I just stepped in something Doctor.

Dr Poo

O it's just one of those Salvador Dali melted clocks.

Dana

O I've got half past six all over my shoes.

Dr Poo

That'll wipe off.

SOUND OF Dana wiping her shoes

Dana

Oo yuck. Now I've got time on my hands. Oh no, it's all right, its run through my fingers.

Dr Poo

What was that time you stepped in Dana?

Dana

Half past six.

Dr Poo

Ah, then it's dinner time. Share the time out Dana.

Crowd

Give us a minute will you. Ah, lovely time.

Dana

We'll have a nice time.

Dr Poo

Anyone for seconds?

Crowd

Ah yes, yes.

Kevin

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!
