Just two nights after debuting in the title role of a new production of Hamlet, David Tennant was back at the theatre.
But this time the actor wasn't treading the boards.
Instead, Tennant and his Doctor Who co-star and girlfriend Georgia Moffett were lending moral support to another star of the hit TV show, Catherine Tate, appearing in play Under The Blue Sky.
When the private couple left the Duke Of York's Theatre in the West End district of London they made a mad dash for a taxi.
They have been dating for the past couple of months.
Miss Moffett, a 23-year-old single mother who recently dyed her hair jet black, is the fourth Doctor Who colleague Tennant has romanced. Bizarely, she plays his onscreen daughter on the show.
Miss Moffett played the Time Lord's child Jenny in episode six of the most recent series entitled The Doctor's Daughter and while it was a one-off appearance, the opportunity for her to return in later shows has been left open.
The actress, who has a six-year-old son named Tyler from a previous relationship, revealed after first meeting Tennant: 'David is dishy, isn't he?
'He's not only a good-looking but he is such a lovely, sweet guy.'
Mr Tennant has been nursing his personal heartache after his mother Helen died after a five-year battle with cancer last summer.
