    Matt Smith was only signed for the three series plus specials. Towards the end of that time Steven Moffat apparently tried to convince him to extend his run but Matt apparently felt if he did another series, he’d do another after that and he just wouldn’t know when to leave.

    As he was In his own time stream, he could see all his life, including days he was yet to live. He was also at the end of his life, so any living doctor there must be presented in past tense, and even if an earlier doctor comes along, he can’t say ‘he will break’ because it’s already happened:- he’s dead!

    the doctor probably would not of cried for the snow men and AOTD because he had not bonded with her like he had done with amy

    Did anyone notice that Clara has died twice and the Doctor was unable to save her, but yet she just got burnt up into a million pieces by HIMSELF and he doesn’t even shed a tear. Not an Amy Pond ‘NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!’ moment, not a Rose ‘Awwww…’ moment, just ‘No, Clara.’ Its almost as convincing as Gene Wilder’s sarcastic portrayal of Willy Wonka. Look forward to the 50th nevertheless.

    Matt Smith knows all about him though. He talked about John Hurt in the past tense as well, so he cannot be from the future.

    Well in The Two Doctors Patrick Troughton recognised Colin Baker so he could recognise him.

    That happened to me with Cold War. I had a dream that it was brilliant…

    That was just a joke… It doesn’t atually mean that he can regenerate 507 times… Probably just The Doctor’s way of saying that he’s not going to let a little thing like dying stop him.

    It can’t be a future Doctor become Matt Smith recognised him. It can’t be an alternative first Doctor because we have now seen Hartnell leave Gallifrey. I think that it would be amazing if when the Great Intelligence re-wrotethe Doctor’s timeline, he forced him to regenerate… into Dr. Simeon, becoming the Doctor from The Scream of the Shalka. Then, this Doctor grew older living a separate life, seperate from the other incarnations and became John Hurt. Although that almost definitely won’t happen.
