This was fun to read. I think it's cool Tennant is dating Peter Davidson's daughter so I don't think it's "ew" like the article says. I don't think they mean "ew", either, I think they just want the wordplay.

The Doctor Dates His Daughter From 'The Doctor's Daughter

From England comes a report that puts the "ew" in sci-fi "news": Doctor Who star David Tennant is currently dating Georgia Moffett -- the actress who portrayed The Doctor's daughter in the Who episode of that same name.

Normally such gossipy kiss 'n' time travel news is better left to check-out line tabloids or Larry King, but there's such a bizarre pseudo-incestual, mobius strip of intertwining coincidences here that they almost create a sci-fi story on their own.

Moffett is the daughter of Peter Davison, who played The Doctor's fifth incarnation. So, she's a Doctor's daughter playing The Doctor's daughter. She's also the first Doctor's daughter who played The Doctor's daughter to date The Doctor.

Davison appeared with Tennant himself in a special Who episode last Christmas, "Time Crash." That yuletide story was written by new show-runner, Steven Moffatt. So, Tennant is the first Doctor to date the daughter of another Doctor -- having just appeared in a story with that paternal Doctor. See, Tennant met the father (Davison) of his new girlfriend (Moffett) on an episode written by his new boss (Moffatt).

Young Moffett's roll in "The Doctor's Daughter" is not the first time a previous lead actor's descendant has appeared on the show. David Troughton, son of Doctor No. 2 Patrick Troughton, appeared in Doctor No. 3's "The Curse of Peladon" in 1972. Strangely enough, Alice Troughton directed "The Doctor's Daughter" with Tennant and Moffett, but she bares no relation to Patrick -- so she's not a Doctor's daughter.

If you're scoring along at home, that's four Doctors, three Troughtons, two daughters, a Moffett, a Moffatt and a migraine.

you see this is what happens when you hire a fan to do the acting/directing etc.

that's why "fanboys" make better films than people who are doing it for paychecks (daredevil vs. batman begins)

I think it's cool that they're dating.

It sounded like the article wanted a sensational way to get people to watch the show.

But I also agree with Toastr :)
