“His real name isn’t the point, you have the name you are given and then the name you choose for yourself and then have to live up to.
Our Doctor makes clear that while he is the 11th of THAT NAME, he isn’t the 11th incarnation. John Hurt’s Doctor isn’t counted, as he acted in the name of sanity, and of peace, but not of the Doctor. This can only be the one who, in ending the Time War killed so many.
‘DOCTOR’ means healer, this is the version of himself that he kept secret..hidden because he committed genocide to both his enemies and his own people.
*Whether or not Hurt is the real 9th regeneration which means Eccleston (10th), Tennant (11th), Smith (12th) and he has lied about the numbers or that Hurt isn’t counted at all remains to be seen until Nov.23rd*
To all that were still confused, there you go.
Doctor Who (S7pt2Ep8): The Name of the Doctor
but that makes no sense.
it is no secret that the doctor has murdered all those people during the time war. he says it, he admits it. why suddenly should the incarnation who did it, be the big secret?
makes no sense!
