As a Whovian I am really concerned about this theory of John Hurt being the “true” Ninth Doctor. BUT… guys, It’s just a theory. I know Moffat it’s not the best showrunner, and I know a lot of clues are leading us to this conclution, yet we don’t really know if this conclutions are real, he could be The Doctor before William Hartnell, he could be Eight at then end of his life, he could be The Valeyard and YES he could be the “Ninth Doctor”.
However this doen’t mean we must be hatin’ all over the place. HE IS JOHN HURT after all, so I believe we should all wait and see. And if he trully ends up being an incarnation between 8 and 9 we should simply call him 8.5.
