To think that Andy is the worst palaeontologist ever

How did he get that job in the museum?

Even I would know that the things he brings back should be used to benefit our scientific understanding of prehistory and not just to cover up the mistakes that he/Hattie makes.

Did Mr Pickles give him an amazing reference? I be surprised given how much time he spent in that shed with his cat.

I always assumed he was fired from the animal park after Mr pickles finally cottoned on to his skiving and porky pies!

Thought he was doing bit better at museum. That cleaner though?!?!?

Yes he's constantly breaking exhibits,he's clearly not up to the job.
I'd say Mr Pickles was glad to get rid of the dosser though, everytime he rang asking him to do something it was "yes Mr Pickles, I'll go on a tea break now but will do straight after"

I thought he was just some sort of skivvy at the natural history museum. He and Hattie do seem to be constantly fucking stuff up, she annoys me, she just leaves him to sort her mistakes, she doesn't know about time travel, so must assume he pulls an all-nighter fixing her shit, she doesn't seem very grateful, nor does she ever offer to help.

I'm utterly sick of him messing something up and then using time travel as a sticking plaster for his mistakes. Why does he never address the fundamental problems - he is careless with priceless exhibits and is less knowledgable about his specialist subject than an average three year old.

This guy has obviously padded his CV a bit and there are no reference checks!

Be fair to Hattie. Given how much she loves all thing prehistoric, isn't it a bit shit that Andy has never told her that he's got a portal to the past?

O/t but His nostrils are mesmerising

Imagine if Hattie went back. She would gather scientific evidence in the proper way. She would get it into the lab and then publish her findings. Not just use her portal to time itself to stop herself from getting in trouble with her superiors.

I'm not too fussed about his CV, I think he's reet easy on the eye wink

Hattie doesn't think Andy pulls all nighters to fix her mistakes- she always makes the mistake at 8:50am and Andy fixes it at 9:00. So she just thinks he's flipping quick and good at 'making time'.

Tell you what though, given that the school tour changes its schedule every single day, I wouldn't be going to the messed up exhibit first, I'd go round everything else to give Andy a bit more of a chance!

Maybe Mr & Mrs Pickles spend their evenings over the dinner table trying to work out which family member they can foist him on to next.
Master Pickles must have a submarine explorer to go looking at fish/underwater adventures or Something

I'm worried that at some point something major is going to happen. Andy clearly hasn't thought about how important not affecting the time line is, probably hasn't read Harry Potter. He's always fucking about and he's definitely left things behind before.
