The Chrono-perambulator movie storyline revolves around an eccentric Professor Teddy Knox played by Bill Paterson, and his attempts to travel back in time to discover the origin of artifacts found at a neolithic excavation site. Charles Dance plays the character of James "Dougie" Douglas - a Sherlock Holmes type who attempts to pour reason on some of Professor Knox's wilder outbursts.
