Re: One particular SPOILER from The Name of the Doctor
Moffat has barely mentioned the Time War or anything from the RTD era (except River Song, whom he created himself) in the three years he's been doing the show. So I'm skeptical of the notion that this new plot twist is related to the Time War.
There have actually been quite a few Time War mentions in season 7.2. It's been directly spoken of in The Rings of Akhaten, Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, and The Name of the Doctor. To suddenly start dropping that many references on something that had barely a mention in the previous two and a half years indicates there might be something related to it in the works.
