The TARDIS lands on the deck of a gigantic spaceship from 28th century Earth. Its Captain, Maitland, explains that they are under the control of a race called the Sensorites, who live on Sense-Sphere planet. They are all physically identical, with huge, bald heads. Through telepathic communication with Susan, the Sensorites invite them down to Sense-Sphere for talks. They explain they know the spcship has discovered the mineral Molubdenum on their planet, and they are wary of being exploited. The Sensorites fear Humans because many of they have died since another spaceship left. The Doctor discovers deadly nightshade in the city’s wter supply and tracks down the culprits to underground caves – three deranged spacemen left behind from a previous expedition. The Captain promises to say nothing of the Sensorites existence.
