I've just watched the final scene again and I have a question, if anyone knows... Clara explicitely tells the Doctor "You're the eleventh Doctor". I know the "11" motif has been used since Matt Smith took over, and of course calling him "the eleventh Doctor" is very common among fans, but I have the impression that it's quite rare in the show itself. Has it happened before, someone calling the Doctor "the nth Doctor"?
I think One identifies himself as "the first. The original, you might say" in The Five Doctors, but that's all that springs to mind.
And goes on to say "Goodness me, so there are 5 of me now"

Most Companions don't even know about The Doctor Regenerating until it happens in front of them, so, if a Doctor Regenerates during their travels together, typically, the Companion doesn't really know about any others then the one they started with, and ended with (Multi-Doctor stories aside).
