David and Georgia have had two children together; these children now have Doctor Who for both their father and their grandfather! David's real surname is McDonald, but he changed his name to get into Equity, inspired by Pet Shop Boy singer Neil Tennant's surname (he changed his name to Tennant by deed poll in 2011 at Georgia's request). David's father Sandy appeared in the Doctor Who episode The Unicorn and the Wasp (2008).

In 2009 the couple lost their eight-month-old daughter Ella-Jayne to congenital heart failure. The tragedy inspired the couple to set up the Murray Parish Trust and help raise money to open a new children's hospital in the south of England, scheduled to open in 2020. Sarah's brother is songwriter and producer John Parish, who has worked with, among others, PJ Harvey, Tracy Chapman, Eels, Goldfrapp and KT Tunstall.

The ridiculous list of Doctor Who universe programmes Russell has been involved with provides the bulk of his television output, but it is by no means representative of it.

He also won the 2001 Writer of the Year British Comedy Award, and has been nominated five times for a Hugo Award (he won in 2010 for Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars).
