10th Doctor Who engaged to daughter of 5th Doctor Who

In a twist that could not have been better written by Russell T Davies or Steven Moffat, David Tennant—who played the 10th incarnation of Doctor Who—is set to marry his actress girlfriend Georgia Moffett, who also happens to be the daughter of Peter Davison: the Fifth Doctor.

Moffett's dad played the Fifth Doctor from 1981 to 1984 and was, until Matt Smith came along, the youngest actor ever to play the famous Time Lord, at the age of 29. Davison later made a return appearance as the Doctor in 2007, alongside David Tennant's Ten, in the Children in Need special Time Crash.

David Tennant and Georgia Moffett have been dating ever since the Fifth Doctor's daughter guest-starred on (get this) The Doctor's Daughter, when she played his artificially generated biological daughter Jenny during the show's fourth season in 2008. Moffett more recently appeared in a season-two episode of Merlin titled Sweet Dreams.

The happy couple plans to marry on New Year's Day 2012.

Let's all go ahead and admit it: We're wondering if any other former (or current) Doctors, such as Tom Baker, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann or even Matt Smith (somehow we have a feeling Christopher Eccleston would NOT be interested) will find themselves on the list of invites for the wedding.

Yes, we ARE dreaming, but it would be surreal and awesome if something like that ever happened.

So—are you guys happy for the couple?
