FADE IN: 

INT. TARDIS CONSOLE ROOM - DAY 

(The Doctor is sat watching something on one of the screens, laughing away to himself. Clara appears above on the balcony.)
CLARA: What are you watching?
DOCTOR: 'The Two Ronnies'. Fork Handles. Classic! Why can't the rest of you lot be like them? Or Morecambe and Wise? Or Smith and Jones? Or... or... or...?
CLARA: Mitchell and Webb?
DOCTOR: Who?
CLARA: Never mind.
 
(Clara makes her way down to him.)

CLARA (CONT'D): So... where to next?
 
(The Doctor gets up and turns off the screen.)

DOCTOR: Well, I don't know...
CLARA: You don't know?
 
(He moves around the console, fiddling with the controls. Clara follows.)

DOCTOR: I was busy!
CLARA: What, watching 'The Two Ronnies'?
DOCTOR: It's Classic! Unlike "Spider and Web" or whatever you called them.
CLARA: It's "Mitchell and Webb". And what happened to "the spirit of adventure"?
DOCTOR: What do you mean? I've never lost it.
 
(He goes to take a seat on the stairs going up to the balcony above.) 

CLARA: Well, think of something. I'm not sitting in here all day. I want an adventure! I want see things no-one else has!
 
(The Doctor smiles at her upbeatness. Then jumps up and moves over to the console, once again fiddling with the controls.) 

DOCTOR: Okay.
 
(Clara turns and skips after him.) 

CLARA: Okay?
DOCTOR: Okay! I'll show you something no-one else has seen. Well, apart from me, of course.
CLARA: What are you going to show me?
DOCTOR: You'll see...
CLARA: No, tell me.
DOCTOR: It's a surprise. Hold on.
 
(He pulls the lever and the TARDIS sets into motion as the two are thrown about the room.) 

DOCTOR: Here we go!

CUT TO:

EXT. 76 TOTTER'S LANE - NIGHT

(The TARDIS lands in a very familiar junkyard. The door opens and The Doctor appears. He looks around gleefully.) 

DOCTOR: Okay. Out you come.

(Clara appears from inside the TARDIS. She shuts the door behind her and looks around.)

CLARA: Okay, Doctor. Enough suspense. Where are we?
 
(She crosses her arms as The Doctor moves towards the gates and spins around, arms wide open.) 

DOCTOR: Welcome... to Totter's Lane!
CLARA: It's a junkyard...
DOCTOR: Yes, but not just any junkyard...
CLARA: No?
DOCTOR: No. Because this, Clara Oswald, is where it all began. 23rd November 2013. Back to the beginning!

(The Doctor grins wildly as Clara looks on with confusion and amusement.)
