*TheAllegedCar: "This old ship of mine seems to be an aimless thing."

* ContinuityNod: One of the first clear signs of continuity in the series is that near the beginning, the Doctor and companions mention nearly all of their previous adventures together and how they've developed during the journey. Makes sense for an episode near the end of the first season.

* FailedASpotCheck: John amazingly fails to see Barbara and Susan to his immediate left. And then kindly insists on looking in the opposite direction of them on his way out. * HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Ultimately, averted ,as while humans were guilty of the poisoning, they were actually driven mad by the sensosphere, so their vilainy status is left ambiguous, while the speciesist City Administrator was, in the end, the true villain (though as far as sensorites go, he was an exception).

She points out that she is ''not'' from Earth but her home planet is very much like Earth. * HypocriticalHumor:HypocriticalHumor: This gem makes both Ian and Barbara laugh.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* GenreSavvy: Ian ''very'' briefly is this when he says he doesn't like splitting up because it always leads to trouble. But, he very quickly changes his mind due to lack of better options at the time.

* NeverSplitTheParty: Ian is GenreSavvy about it at this point, but acknowledges that they have no choice in the matter.

It transpires that a fatal disease is spreading like wildfire among the Sensorites, and immediately, Ian comes down with it as well. The Doctor realises that the planet's water supply is tainted with deadly nightshade. He investigates despite the interference of the City Administrator (and a lot of political intrigue), and ''eventually'' manages to convince the Sensorites that he's safe to trust. However, by that time, the entire Sensorite goverment is in uproar because of the scheming City Administrator realising that he can fool everyone simply by switching clothes. To make matters worse, the Doctor actually suggests that the City Administrator be promoted. Luckily, Barbara rejoins the plot on the planet, immediately realises what's going on and starts setting everything straight by establishing a psychic link with Susan (using Sensorite telepathy technology).

* WaterSourceTampering: The Sensorites are being affected by a disease that the good guys later trace to a human expedition,maddened by the sensosphere, poisoning their water supply.

* WaterSourceTampering: WrongGenreSavvy: The City Administrator managed to be this and DangerouslyGenreSavvy. His final plan to kill the Doctor and his companions was when they went to investigate what was the source of the poisoned water, knowing that there was something down in the caves killing any Sensorites who went down there, makes sure they are being affected by a disease that the good guys later trace to a human expedition,maddened by the sensosphere, poisoning given inaccurate maps and their water supply.weapons are sabotaged before entering, certain that whatever is down there will kill them. This likely would have worked, except what was hiding down there turned to be humans.

Due to the similar design of the Sensorites to the Ood in the new series, in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E3PlanetOfTheOod Planet of the Ood]]", [[AscendedFanon Sense-Sphere is shown to be in the same system as Oodsphere.]]
