Re: One particular SPOILER from The Name of the Doctor

I think he's an amalgamation of ALL the Doctors. That all of him, at one time or another, came together in the time war, and essentially "donated" a tiny bit of their regeneration energy, to create a version of The Doctor (ala turning The Doctor's hand into 10.5) to perform some task / make some sacrifice that none of them were willing to do on their own. He is the living embodiment of some great shared shame; someone/thing they've all tried to block, but which can no longer be denied.
