    One thought on “Doctor Who: Voyage to Venus”

    1. This was a lot of fun. Jago and Litefoot and the Doctor in a Burroughs/Wells esque trip to Venus. There were women terraformers and monsters and colonisers it was all quite wonderful and explained the Venusian Lullaby in Monster of Peladon.

    2. One of two individual episodes released between the fourth and fifth seasons of Jago and Litefoot, this sees the Victorian duo accompanying the Sixth Doctor in the TARDIS for the titular voyage.A large part of the joy of Jago and Litefoot is the Victorian setting, and seeing the pair here as fish-out-of-water is a little incongruous, even if the characters themselves are played as well as ever. Having said that, the story is clearly reminiscent of the "planetary romance" genre, of the likes of H [...]

    3. This story has Jago and Litefoot with the Sixth Doctor . There are quite a few tributes in this story . There are homages to Jules Verne as well as the original series . Most notably, a possible origin of the Venusian lullaby mentioned by the third Doctor . Overall, a fun story.

    4. A fun little trifle set between between Jago and Litefoot Series 4 and 5 finds our Investigators of Infernal Incidents joining the Doctor (Colin Baker incarnation) for a quick jaunt in the Tardis and ending up, as the title indicates, on Venus. I worried that Jago and Litefoot, so far removed from their regular setting, simply wouldn't fit in to an interplanetary adventure, yet it works fine. Even Professor Litefoot's expertise as a pathologist comes into play. Light fun, and possibly just an ex [...]

    5. The Doctor takes Jago and Litefoot on their first trip in the Tardis. They land on Venus, a planet with an evil woman dictator. This feels like pulp scifi at its best. Jago and Litefoot really shine through as Victorian adventurers in space. There's lots of in jokes about the Doctors previous experiences on Venus too. A very good listen.

    6. I haven't listened to any of the Jago and Lightfoot range, but remember them from the 4th Dr TV story they originally appeared in. This was a fun story in the vein of Jules Verne or Edgar Rice Burroughs, and loved the Victorian feel of it, with the two heroes being very much a product of their time. They, and the 6th Dr, play off each other very well.

    7. I always enjoy Jago and Litefoot, and they had good chemistry with Six. The plot was a typical Doctor Who story, however. Nothing exceptional.
