Georgia Elizabeth Moffett (born 25 December 1984) is an English actress. She is best known for her role as Detective Inspector Samantha Nixon's daughter Abigail in The Bill[1] and the Doctor's daughter Jenny in Doctor Who ("The Doctor's Daughter"). She is the daughter of actors Peter Davison (born Peter Moffett) and Sandra Dickinson,[2] and the wife of actor David Tennant.

Career

Moffett was born in West London and attended St Edward's School in Oxford.[3] She made her debut on television at the age of 15 in 1999 in Peak Practice, playing Nicki Davey.[4] Moffett has appeared in television dramas such as The Second Quest and Like Father Like Son. She played downtrodden Alice Harding in the ITV1 drama Where the Heart Is in 2004 and 2005[5] and has performed alongside her father, Peter Davison, in Fear, Stress & Anger[6] and The Last Detective[7].

In 2007 she made her theatrical debut as Mathilde Verlaine in Total Eclipse at London's Menier Chocolate Factory.[8]

In May 2008, Moffett starred in Doctor Who as the Doctor's cloned daughter, Jenny, in the episode "The Doctor's Daughter", with her future husband David Tennant playing the Doctor.[9] (Moffett herself is the daughter of Peter Davison, who played the fifth incarnation of the Doctor in the 1980s.) In August 2008, Moffett starred in series one of BBC Three's spy spin-off Spooks: Code 9 as Kylie Roman.[10][11]

In 2009 she voiced the role of Cassie Rice in the BBC's Animated Adventure Doctor Who: Dreamland starring David Tennant,[12] and portrayed Lady Vivian in the "Sweet Dreams" episode of the BBC drama Merlin.[13] She joined the cast of BBC medical drama Casualty as junior doctor Heather Whitefield, but her character was killed off in her second episode. As she was credited as a regular (with a character profile on the official website and an appearance in the opening title sequence), this makes Moffett the shortest-serving Casualty regular to date.

In June 2010 she performed in the short play Hens, which ran for four performances at the Riverside Studios and was later broadcast on Sky Arts 2,[14] and played a cameo role in the TV drama Thorne: Sleepyhead as the wife of one of the junior detectives (appearing in one scene in episode two, and one non-speaking scene in episode three). In March 2011 she landed the role of Emma in the BBC Three sitcom White Van Man [15] which ran for two series before being cancelled. In May 2012, Moffett made her West End debut in the play What The Butler Saw at the Vaudeville Theatre in London.[16] The play was not a critical or commercial success and was cancelled in July, closing a month before its scheduled end.

Personal life

Moffett became pregnant at 16, and gave birth to a son, Tyler, on 27 March 2002.[17] Moffett and her son have appeared together on the British reality series Four Weddings[18] and on an episode of Doctor Who Confidential, and he interviewed her for a video for the BBC website.[19] Tyler Moffett attends a drama school in London owned by his grandmother, Sandra Dickinson, and made his acting debut in May 2010, in a TV commercial for The Great British Teddy Bear Company.

In January 2011, several newspapers in Britain reported that Moffett was engaged to actor David Tennant. Moffett gave birth to the couple's daughter two months later, in March 2011.[20][21] Moffett and Tennant married on 30 December 2011.[22] In 2011, Tennant adopted Moffett's son Tyler.[23] The couple avoid talking about each other or their relationship in the press, and ask interviewers not to mention the subject.[24][25][26][27][28] They have never posed for press photographers or walked a red carpet together, though numerous paparazzo photos of the pair exist.
