back to article Doctor Who to marry Doctor Who's daughter

Doctor Who the 10th, David Tennant, is planning to get hitched to his fictional daughter Georgia Moffett, who also happens to be the real daughter of his fictional fifth incarnation. Moffet is the real-life fruit of former Time Lord Peter Davison's loins, and played Who offspring Jenny in 2008's The Doctor's Daughter. Davison …

Why do the rich, successful, good-looking men get all the best girls?

Wedding plans?

Surely they should walk up the aisle to the Dr Who theme tune and be married by a Dalek.

So many possibilities.

I expect this is going to be a puntastic comments thread..

Personally I want the registrar etc to be John Simm in full priestly regalia..

Have they considered the vows yet? 'Do thee Doctor, give away Doctor to be married to Doctor (or perhaps 'The')

I've never tried to write for Doctor Who but that would appear to be pretty much how most of the Beeb works, more or less. It's hard to get in.

To be fair I've got gigs on occasion that I wouldn't have got if I didn't know people (although you generally still have to be good).

Not this one, though. It was pure pedantry.

As you were.

"They gave you the shittiest end of the stick editing these comments too. They don't rate you and you clearly don't either otherwise you'd have told them to stick it years ago."

How about you let *her* decide whether she's in a job she wants to do or not? I'm not normally one to call -isms, but your remark about being the token girl was cheap. You should probably aim for higher standards than that if you want to lecture other people on theirs.

Still, from what I've seen of Sarah's responses to us commentards so far, I'm sure it'll be like water off a duck.

Bad idea?

"One of the major problems encountered in time travel is not that of becoming your own father or mother. There is no problem in becoming your own father or mother that a broad-minded and well-adjusted family can't cope with."

Clearly, you're not broad-minded enough.

Does David Tennant...?

Does David Tennant only go out with girls who were in Who? He was dating Sophia Myles before who played Madame de Pompadour in Series 2.

On a side note Georgia Moffett is only 26 but has a 10 year old son.

RE: Tom 15

It appears he's 10, although he was actually born when the dinosaurs were around and they all briefly lived on Voga for 10 years before getting engaged here in 2011.

The wedding is in 2093 if you're lucky enough to get an invite and the honeymoon is to Egypt in 1822

WTF?

Error : Stack overflow

I'm stuck in a recursive loop. So Bill Wyman son could also be his father in law. Which would mean Bill Wyman's son could become his own grand father in law. Which would also mean Bill Wyman's wife's father in law is her step son, the grand father in law of her husband?! Which would also mean ... aaargghhh! ... Stack Overflow ... my brain's crashed! :)

Is marrying yourself legal? :)

Technically the 'Doctor's daughter' is a clone, so he's marrying himself (I know, I know, they do look a bit different). Surely that's not allowed..

I wonder how many other Who marriages there have been - there's already precedence for a 'Time Lord' marriage when Tom Baker (fourth Doctor) briefly married Lalla Ward (Time Lady Romana). Of course, Lalla then went off and married Dawkins, so they're obviously subverting the universe from within..

I think it probably IS legal...

The good old C of E 'Table of Kindred and Affinity' has a very clear list of who you can't marry:

A Man may not marry his

mother

daughter

adopted daughter

father's mother

mother's mother

son's daughter

daughter's daughter

sister

wife's mother

wife's daughter

father's wife

son's wife

father's father's wife

mother's father's wife

wife's father's mother

wife's mother's mother

wife's daughter's daughter

wife's son's daughter

son's son's wife

daughter's son's wife

father's sister

mother's sister

brother's daughter

sister's daughter

But it doesn't actually mention 'himself', so clones seem to be okay then. (although I think they would be rather against the spirit of the thing)

Which means that...

So let me get this straight: the fifth doctor begat the clone of his tenth incarnation.

But if a clone's a clone, then they are genetically identical, so the fifth doctor must have had relations with someone genetically identical. So far, none of the doctor's regenerations have been female, making the only candidate for mother... the clone herself.

So at some point in the future (or past) there will be (or will have been) a mammoth case where The Doctor divorced The Doctorclone for infidelitous relationship with... The Doctor.

In any divorce, it's the kids that suffer, which in this case is also the wife. I bet she was so desperate for therapy that she will have been inventing the whole profession in a few centuries ago.

If you have sex with a clone...

...is that technically masturbation?

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Dunno about that but it's more a case of f*cking yourself about that's for sure.

Re: Is marrying yourself legal? :)

Sorry, you may well know this but I've seen it on too many forums not to comment! Jenny wasn't a clone - technically or otherwise. A clone is an exact genetic copy. For example, identical twins are, genetically speaking, clones. However, Jenny was made by making two haploid gametes from the Doctor (randomly picking which chromosome of the source pair should go into the gamete, and presumably doing a bit of recombination on the way), then fusing them into a viable diploid cell and finally accelerating its growth into an adult - the process resulting in genetically different offspring. Assuming that Time Lords have the same sex determination mechanism as mammals, the genetics of the story were actually correct - you could make a female starting from a male but you could not make a male starting from a female.

Sorry, couldn't stop myself and I'll shut up now ;-)
