Re: [drwho-121] Wow, big news today..

Big news indeed.

Interesting quote from Mr. Moffat: "Of course, this isn't the end of the story, because now the search begins. Somewhere out there right now - all unknowing, just going about their business - is someone who's about to become the Doctor. A life is going to change, and Doctor Who will be born all over again! After 50 years, that's still so exciting!"

Now I really don't know anything for sure, so this isn't really a spoiler but....

This fits with my theory that John Hurt will not be the next Doctor (as some on the Google+ Dr Who community).  My theory is that he actually fits into the personal time-line of the time lord now known as "The Doctor" in a much earlier position, in fact I wouldn't be surprised to find that his instantiation re-incarnated into the William Hartnell time-lord who then took on the moniker of "The Doctor", which would fit into the 11th Doctors statement to Clara that "I said he was me, I didn't say he was the Doctor."

And as for the 12 regeneration 'limit', I don't think that is a hard and fast rule.  Time Lords have already been granted additional lives, the regeneration of Romana I into Romana II was actually a series of 4 or so regenerations before Romana II convinced the Doctor that it was OK to take on the persona of Princess Astra from the preceding story "The Armageddon Factor".  I doubt she would have wasted so many 'lives.'

And then we have the 4th Doctor story "The Brain of Morbius" which certainly appears to show multiple instantiations of the our favorite Time Lord BEFORE the one we know as the first Doctor, in the final battle with Morbius, who asks about the time the EIGHTH incarnation before Hartnell, asks him "How long HAVE you lived?"
