She is the daughter of Peter Davison, who played the Fifth Doctor (1982- 84), and American actress Sandra Dickinson. Moffett began acting as a young teenager, and acted in numerous TV shows, often acting opposite her father. She was a regular on The Bill as Sam Nixon's troubled teen daughter Abi, who was featured in a number of major storylines.
In 2004 she met with Russell T Davies and the producers to ask to be considered for the role of Rose Tyler, but they decided not to allow her to audition, because she was too young. In 2008 she auditioned for the role of Robina Redmond in the episode The Unicorn and the Wasp, but Russell T Davies asked her to wait as he felt she would better suit the role of Jenny. She has also done numerous audio jobs in various Doctor Who spin-off media: she voiced the roles of Cassie Rice for the animated Doctor Who serial Dreamland (using an American accent); Alice in the Sixth Doctor adventure City of Spires; and Tanya Webster in the Big Finish Productions Doctor Who audio Red Dawn (opposite her father), as well as recording audio versions of two BBC Audio BBC Tenth Doctor Adventures novels, and doing voiceover work for Big Finish's The Lost Stories.
Since appearing on Doctor Who in 2008, Moffett has acted in the short-lived spinoff Spooks: Code Nine and made three TV guest appearances (in Casualty in 2008, Merlin in 2009, and a cameo in Thorne in 2010). In 2010, she landed the role of Emma in the BBC3 sitcom White Van Man, which was cancelled after two series. Also in 2010 she played a role in a one-act play, Hens, which ran for four performances at a fringe theatre in Hammersmith as part of a fringe festival. In 2012 she landed her first major theatre role, in What the Butler Saw (which her husband David Tennant acted in 17 years earlier), playing the sexy secretary who the main character tries to seduce. The role required her to wear only lingerie throughout many of her scenes, which Moffett described as scary but liberating. Rehearsals started in March and the play started previews in May. Unfortunately it was not a critical or commercial success and the play was cancelled in July, a month before it was scheduled to finish.
Personal life Edit
She was born nine months after Colin Baker took on role of the Sixth Doctor, replacing her father as the Doctor. Some years later she would attend the same school as Baker's daughter. Moffett became pregnant at 16 (she has never named the father publicly, only saying he was an older man who worked as a waiter at a restaurant near her boarding school), and gave birth to her son, Tyler Peter Moffett, on 27 March 2002. She began dating her Where the Heart Is co-star Adam Paul Harvey in February 2004, moving in with him four months later, and he became a father to her son. They split in 2006. Both Harvey and Moffett have stated that they consider him to be her son's father "in every way except biologically" and he maintains unofficial joint custody of the child. Tyler attends stage school in London and has acted in a TV commercial, interviewed his mother for a video for the Doctor Who Official Site, and appeared with his mother and grandmother on a reality TV show.
In summer 2008, UK tabloids reported that she was dating David Tennant. In January 2011, UK tabloids reported that they were engaged, with a wedding planned for 2012, and that she was pregnant. On 31 March UK newspapers reported that Moffett had given birth to a daughter, named Olive, earlier that week. She reportedly married Tennant in a secret ceremony on the 30th December 2011, and no photos or details from the event have been made public. On 5 January 2013, Jonathan Ross announced on his TV show that Moffett was pregnant for the third time. Neither Tennant nor Moffett have ever spoken about their relationship publicly      (though Tennant confirmed on 21 March 2012 during a promotional interview for his latest film that he had adopted Moffett's son), and they avoid being photographed together.
