David Tennant has said that he felt somewhat stupid for marrying the daughter of another Doctor Who icon.

David Tennant, 49, who played the ever-popular 10th Doctor in BBC’s Doctor Who, is married to Georgia, the daughter of Peter Davison, who played the fifth incarnation of the character.

Speaking on the That Gaby Roslin Podcast, Georgia, 35, recounted the meeting of herself and Tennant, saying she was the instigator.

She joked: ‘I very much forced it into happening. I was very much the driving force. Had I not worked quite so hard, it might not have happened.

‘I very much fell into stalker category. Thank goodness I did though.’

Tennant, who has five children with Georgia, said: ‘I thought we were an unlikely life partnership, there was a bit of an age gap.’

The couple met when Georgia appeared as the Doctor’s cloned daughter in the 2008 episode The Doctor’s Daughter.

Tennant said he wasn’t blind to the Doctor Who connection between his wife and her father, saying it was somewhat of a sticking point.

‘Because Doctor Who had run through my life like a stick of rock, to end up marrying the daughter of one of the doctors, it all felt a bit stupid… so there were a lot of things against it.’

Love won out in the day though with Tennant saying: ‘There’s a great Tim Minchin song, ‘If I didn’t have you someone else would probably do’… but I certainly feel like I lucked out.’

Their fifth child, Birdie, was born last October.

Tennant will be back as the Doctor in a slew of new projects in both an audio drama and a new video game.

That Gaby Roslin Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all podcast streaming platforms. Episodes are weekly, released every Monday.
