Mmh, I think I prefer the idea that John Hurt is the actual first Doctor.
I like that idea too. Everyone knows that the Doctor was involved in the Time War and what he did. Tennant's Doctor mentioned it to Rose and his other companions several times so why keep his regeneration from that time secret.
It has to be the "pre" Doctor who eventually became Hartnell's Doctor and he did something so bad that he had to steal a TARDIS and leave Gallifrey and spend the rest of his lives trying to make up for it. But then even the end credits say John Hurt is The Doctor so we have to wait till November to see.
