I sorta think Hurt is a reconstruction of the part intended for Eccleston
Indeed, a popular theory since the rumours of John Hurt's role first leaked is that he'd be filling the role Eccleston would have served in the 50th, but I don't know. Given how things played out, I'm of the opinion that Hurt would have been this mysterious forgotten Doctor anyway, and that Moffat's plan would have simply featured Smith teaming up with Hurt plus Eccleston and Tennant. But that's just speculation on my part.

isn't the notion that he is part human a recurrent idea?
The Eighth Doctor infamously refers to himself as half human in the TV movie, though that has been largely ignored in the new series. The only times it does get acknowledged is when they want to make a joke ("Are you human?" "Is that optional?" "It is for me.")
