Actor David Tennant said it felt strange to marry the daughter of an actor who played Doctor Who before his five-year run in the role.

"Because 'Doctor Who' had run through my life like a stick of rock, to end up marrying the daughter of one of the doctors, it all felt a bit stupid," Tennant told the BBC's Gaby Roslin, according to The Independent. (A recording of the interview did not appear to be available as of Saturday. Roslin said a podcast episode including the conversation will be released on Monday.)

Tennant met his wife, the actress Georgia Moffett, after she appeared on the show in 2008. The two got married in 2011 and have five children. Moffett's father, Peter Davison, starred on "Doctor Who" from 1981 to 1984.

Moffett told Roslin she put a lot of effort into courting Tennant, saying they wouldn't have dated had she not been persistent, according to The Independent.

"I was very much the driving force," Moffett reportedly told Roslin. "Had I not worked quite so hard, it might not have happened."

Tennant said he felt fortunate to have met Moffett, according to The Scotsman.

"I certainly feel like I lucked out," he reportedly said.

Tennant has appeared in a number of films and television shows since leaving "Doctor Who." The actor's most recent show, "Des," premiered in September. Moffett has appeared on two "Doctor Who" spin-off series and starred with Tennant in "Staged" this year.
