on the Digital Journal.
In keeping with the Doctor Who connections, Georgia Moffett, 27, is the daughter of fifth actor to play Doctor, Peter Davison (1981-1984). Georgina also DI Samantha Nixon’s daughter Abigail in the television drama "The Bill". Her mother is the actress Sandra Dickinson. To cement the connection further, Georgina played Jenny in the 2008 Doctor Who story "The Doctor's Daughter". It was on the set of this episode that, as Heat Magazine
