Georgia Moffett is an actress who starred as the Doctor’s daughter, Jenny, in the Doctor Who episode The Doctor’s Daughter. She has since had roles in spy spin-off Spooks: Code 9 and the BBC drama Merlin. Being a teenage mother herself she says, 'The hardest challenge I face is the taboo and stigma that is still attached to being a young parent. The attitude from certain areas of society towards young single mothers is you made your bed, now lie in it’. Georgia has been a Patron of Straight Talking since 2009.
