The Transit of Venus was the seventh story of the third series of The Companion Chronicles, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Jacqueline Rayner, narrated by William Russell and featured the First Doctor, Susan Foreman, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright.

This adventure described the first place where the TARDIS materialised after the television story The Sensorites, at the end of which the First Doctor had promised to throw Ian and Barbara out. At the end of this adventure, the Doctor returned to his idea of throwing them out, thus leading directly into the events of the television story The Reign of Terror.

Publisher's summary[]

The year is 1770, and daring explorer Captain James Cook and his crew on the Endeavour are navigating the Pacific Ocean.

Into their midst come strangers: the First Doctor and Ian Chesterton, who are believed to have come from Venus. But the TARDIS is lost to them — along with both Susan and Barbara — and Ian makes an enemy of the ship's chief scientist, Joseph Banks.

Why is Banks acting strangely? Could it be that the travellers are not the only visitors from the stars?
