Colin Baker (the Doctor), Christopher Benjamin (Henry Gordon Jago), Trevor Baxter (Professor George Litefoot), Juliet Aubrey (Vulpina), Catherine Harvey (Felina), Charlie Norfolk (Ursina), Hugh Ross (Vepaja)
Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago are accustomed to the murky fog of Victorian London and the palatable pints of half and half At The Red Tavern. They are not used to travelling through time and space with their old friend the Doctor.
And now they find themselves whisked off to the planet Venus in the distant future, at a time when warrior women rule from a floating city in the clouds. There’s a mystery here, one that The Grand Empress Vulpina intends to keep secret. Even if it means destroying these visitors from the long-dead planet Earth…

- Voyage to Venus was the third story in Big Finish Productions’ Doctor Who Special Releases range.
- The Third Doctor knew a joke about trusting a Venusian Shanghorn with a perigosto stick. (The Green Death)
- Jago refers to the Palace Theatre and Li H’sen Chang. (The Talons of Weng-Chiang)
- Litefoot knows what a body looks like after it has been mauled by a giant animal. (The Talons of Weng-Chiang)
- Jago and Litefoot sing God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen to soothe the Shanghorn which Felina later decides would be a good basis for a lullaby. This would perhaps become the Venusian lullaby that The Third Doctor sang to Aggedor on Peladon. (The Curse of Peladon, The The Monster of Peladon)
- The Doctor says “Always do what you’re best at, that’s what I say”. (Nightmare of Eden)
