Former 'Doctor Who' star David Tennant has got engaged.

The actor, who played the Tenth Doctor in the BBC One sci-fi show, is set to marry actress Georgia Moffett - the daughter of Fifth Doctor Peter Davidson, who played the Time Lord from 1981 to 1984.

A source said: "They are besotted with each other and can't wait to tie the knot."

The couple - who are set to wed on New Year's Day in 2012 - met on the set of 'Doctor Who' in 2008 when she made a one-off appearance as the time traveller's genetically engineered daughter Jenny in the episode 'The Doctor's Daughter'.

Georgia, 26, has an eight-old son Tyler from a previous relationship and has told friends she is impressed by how well he and David, 39, get on.

David and Peter appeared together in a mini-episode of 'Doctor Who' in 2007 called 'Time Crash' which was broadcast as part of BBC one charity telethon Children in Need.

In the story, the two Doctors met each other in the TARDIS after their time lines collided and it featured a speech where David praised his predecessor as an inspiration to him while in character as the Time Lord.
