Keira Malik

David Tennant and Keira Malik began dating in June of 2005. Their relationship only lasted until October of the same year. Unfortunately, they found it difficult to make their romance work due to their demanding work schedules.

David was busy with his television series "Doctor Who." The show required him to spend a lot of time filming in Cardiff. Meanwhile, Keira had her ambitions and decided to move to New York to pursue a drama study. The distance and their hectic schedules eventually took a toll on them.

Natalie Walter

Natalie Walter and David were romantically involved from 2003 to 2004. During their time together, they shared the stage in the 2008 Royal Shakespeare Company production of Love's Labour's Lost. 

Despite the professional collaboration, not much is known about the details of Walter and Tennant's relationship. Like many celebrities, they may have preferred to keep their personal lives private, away from the public eye.

Anne-Marie Duff

David Tennant and Anne-Marie Duff were in a relationship from 1999 to 2003. They first met while working together as co-stars portraying husband and wife in Maxim Gorky's play "Vassa." The show was staged at London's Albery Theatre in 1999. 

David and Anne-Marie's on-stage chemistry seemed to translate into real life. However, after several years together, the couple eventually decided to go their separate ways. Despite their breakup, the two have remained close.

Did The Actor Date Lucy Porter?

Tennant had a brief encounter with Lucy Porter. They met in late 2005 when the actor attended one of her performances at a gig. After the show, he approached her with an invitation to see his new apartment, using the line, "Do you want to see my swanky new flat?" 

Lucy agreed. Things quickly escalated, and the two started making out. However, this happened once, and their relationship didn't progress beyond that night. Despite the brief nature of their interaction, it remains an interesting footnote in their personal histories.
