Far be it from Kasterborous to judge what is a normal relationship (why only last week we finally met a real girl) but David Tennant’s past relationships with his Doctor Who co-stars seemed pretty standard for a person forced to stand in the body odour of the cast and crew of a very demanding show.
Introduce an exciting outsider to the mix, maintain the buzz and sparkle of being momentarily charming over a course of time and your bound to want to see each other again.
However this isn’t Barry and Shelia in accounting – this is the BBC!
So now and again David Tennant has to pop up and remind over-excited curtain twitches that the world will not be reduced to a singularity because at some point ‘two people who worked together had sex’.
Speaking to The Guardian (and quoted in the somewhat missing the point Digital Spy) on recent tabloid interest in his relationships with both Sophia Myles (The Girl in the Fireplace) and Georgia Moffett (The Doctor’s Daughter, seen here on the right) – who is now the mother of his daughter Olivia – Tennant had this to say:
“I mean I have had some girlfriends, and I did meet some of them at work, you know. My bedpost really has very few notches compared with other actors of my, erm, pedigree… I have never really overdone it. You know, I’ve never had three on the go at the same time. I’m too racked with guilt in every corner of my life to even try to get away with something like that.”
So there you have it: despite what you may have read or seen David Tennant is not a womanizer. All he has done is have regular relationships which occasionally involved his co-stars and he certainly didn’t turn the TARDIS into his own personal Doctor Love surgery.
