Why can't he be a doctor between eight and nine who did something horrible *after* the time war? It really makes no sense for him to be pre the first doctor because of the actual dialogue :

My name, my real name, that is not the point. The name I chose is, the Doctor. The name you choose, its like a promise you make. Hes the one who broke the promise. He is my secret.
Good point. The promise had been made when Hurt's Doctor "broke the promise." A pre-Hartnell Doctor wouldn't have made the promise that the name indicates since Hartnell was the first Doctor to take that name as his promise.
