Doctor Who David Tennant is romancing co-star Georgia Moffett, who played his on-screen daughter Jenny.
Friends say Tennant, 37, and single mum Georgia, 23, have been virtually inseparable in recent weeks, regularly staying over at each other's homes.
The pair were seen leaving his house in North London on Saturday morning after spending the night there.
And on Saturday night the Time Lord travelled to Georgia's home in Twickenham, West London, and didn't leave until Sunday morning.
A friend of Georgia's said: "They have been going out together for a while now but meet up at each other's houses so as to avoid being spotted by Who fans.
"David can't really go anywhere without attracting attention and it's early days so they don't want any distractions or fuss made about what's going on.
"It started with some friendly dinner dates but has progressed quickly and they are now in a serious relationship. Even with his busy schedule, David is making a lot of time to spend with her, so he must really like her." Georgia played the Doctor's daughter Jenny in episode six of the current series. She was shot in the chest but survived and was later blasted off into space alone - leaving an opportunity for her to return in later shows.
Georgia, who has a six-year-old son named Tyler, is perfect for the role as she is the real-life daughter of former Doctor Who Peter Davison. Tennant and Georgia first met while filming scenes in Wales.
She said afterwards: "It was winter when we filmed and I was wearing very little so you can imagine how cold that was.
"David kindly lent me his jacket between takes. He is the best I've worked with. He is so positive - even at five in the morning."
Tennant previously dated Thunderbird actress Sophia Myles. He is also said to have romanced two female members of the Doctor Who crew.
