The night before school, Janie complete her homework on the solar system — four hundred words! — in record time, despite arguing with her brother over a cool pencil she has found. The next day at school, her teacher is very impressed with the amount of detail in her homework, in spite of references to the planet Speldron and it being done in pencil.
However, class is interrupted by the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond. They use psychic paper to pass themselves off as "school inspectors". When the Doctor takes Janie's pencil, she goes wild but is pacified by the Doctor's sonic screwdriver.
Using the pencil on the psychic paper, the sign of the Shape Thieves from the planet Speldron is revealed and the pencil identified as Graphon Narmolis, a shapeshifter specialising in taking the form of inanimate objects to take control of other life forms with psychic powers. The Doctor's mind, however, is too strong and in the Doctor's hands, Graphon Narmolis is powerless. With the influence over her broken, Janie returns to her normal self as if waking from a dream.
