Did they specify the faces were supposed to be past incarnations?
No, they didn't.
Yes, they did. If you watch the story with no preconcieved notions it is obvious that the faces were meant to be pre-Hartnell Doctors. And no, it doesn't fit neatly with previous or later continuity, but it is what it is.
Until I learned of the intent I always thought those were Morbius' faces since right after they appeared Morbius lost. I never watched it wtih any preconieved notions. The scene is ambiguous.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"

to the PINNACLE series of Doctor Who books
