Georgia Tennant doesn’t need any reminding of Doctor Who in her household, as she has one of the most significant, living and breathing pieces of memorabilia that there is.
Earlier today, the official Twitter account for Doctor Who asked its 1.6 million followers: ‘What item in your house always reminds you of Doctor Who?’
Whovians responded in droves, sharing photographs of everything from miniature figurines, a sonic screwdriver spork, a homemade TARDIS and walls covered in posters and fanart galore.
Actor and television producer Georgia, who is the daughter the Fifth Doctor Peter Davison, chimed in, responding to the tweet by writing: ‘I mean…’
Georgia is – of course – not only the daughter of a Doctor, but married to one as well, as she and the Tenth Doctor David Tennant wed in December 2011 after meeting on the set of the sci-fi series in 2008.
The Doctor Who account replied to Georgia’s tweet, writing: ‘It’s a mug, right?’ Of course, that’s it.
One person jokingly described Georgia as a ‘show off’ for her tweet, adding: ‘To be honest, if I had a Doctor in my house I’d brag too.’
Another fan wrote: ‘Imagine when your dad visits. It’s like a who’s who of who.’
Georgia, 36, and David, 49, have five children together, including 18-year-old Ty Tennant, Georgia’s son from a previous relationship who David adopted.
The couple welcomed their fifth child in October 2019, a daughter called Birdie.
Georgia and David recently starred together in season two of comedy series Staged, which is set during the coronavirus pandemic.
During a recent interview, Georgia revealed that a casting director once deemed her not ‘convincing’ enough to play her husband’s on-screen partner.
‘Nobody seemed to want to let me do it. For one part I was told by a casting director that I wasn’t a convincing partner for him… I was like, “But we’re married. With quite a few kids!”’ she told Radio Times.
‘So, basically, every actor who could possibly play the part would have to be eliminated in order for me to be allowed to play his wife…’
Doctor Who is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
