‘I forced it to happen!’: David Tennant’s wife Georgia, 35, confesses she was like a ‘stalker’ in her attempts to woo Doctor Who star, 49, as he admits they are an ‘unlikely partnership’

David Tennant has admitted he ‘felt a bit stupid’ marrying his wife Georgia, given she’s the daughter of a former Doctor Who star, but she was relentless in her affections.

The actor, 49, who himself played the titular Time Lord from 2005 to 2010 and met his wife, 35, when she guest starred on the show as his cloned daughter in 2008, joked they’re an ‘unlikely partnership’ due to their 14-year age gap.

David and Georgia, who have been married since 2011 and share five children, offered insight into their marriage during a rare joint interview, with the actress describing herself as a ‘stalker’ due to her non-stop attempts to woo him.

David and Georgia spoke to That Gaby Roslin Podcast about their nine-year marriage, after meeting while appearing in Who episode The Doctor’s Daughter. 

Discussing their romance during its earliest days, Georgia said: ‘I very much forced it into happening, didn’t I?’ before joking she was determined to woo the actor and kept pursuing him until he gave in.

David then added: ‘That makes it sound like I was resistant, which was not what happened. I thought we were an unlikely life partnership, I suppose. There is a bit of an age gap.

‘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… that wasn’t really likely to happen. So there were a lot of things against it.’ 

David and Georgia married in 2011, and are now parents to Olive, nine, Wilfred, seven, Doris, five, and Birdie, 12 months. David is also adopted father to Georgia’s son Ty, 18.

Georgia also discussed her youngest daughter’s health scare last year, when she was rushed to intensive care shortly after being born last year.
