    i don’t understand how he is the doctor but i also don’t understand if he is the 12th or 13th doctor, is he really the next doctor or someone else?

    It has occurred to none of you that John Hurt could be The 8th Doctor after he has destroyed Gallifrey

    You just don’t get it do you? This isn’t who is replacing Matt. I do so despair, but persevere there may be hope for you yet.

    because those past faces names were the doctor, but maybe the Hurt is not called the doctor, but by his real name (they were called the doctor and maybe this incarnation is called something else?)

    The mysterious Dr. who at the end must be from the past otherwise Matt Smith’s Dr wouldn’t know who he was? To be honest it would be the death of the current format if John Hurt took over so I expect it will be a two- three show at the Max for John


    May 18th, 2013 - 8:25pm

    John Hurt is NOT the real 9th Doctor. If he was then answer me this –

    How come his face is never seen between Doctor’s 8 and 9 whenever the new series has featured the past 10 Doctor’s faces ? such as was recently seen in ‘Nightmare in Silver’.

    Clara herself said that the current Doctor played by Matt Smith in todays episode [“I saw your past selves, your the 11th Doctor”], and she said so herself that she never saw the one that’s ment to be John Hurt, so either the 12th or 13th who broke the promise of what it means to be known as THE DOCTOR, or John is the Doctor of a parallel universe where all the Doctors look different compared to the ones of our time, and it’s up to our 10th and 11th Doctors of our universe to send John’s one back to his universe in Novembers 50th Anniversary special.

    It would be the 8th doctor if it was him during the Last Great Time War. Otherwise, how would they explain the drastic appearance changes between Christopher and John?

    No he’s the real ninth doctor he ended the time war

  • tardisbob

    May 18th, 2013 - 8:12pm

    I reckon John Hurt will play the doctor between the 8th and 9th doctors. the one lost in the time war

  • Dalek Smith
