Re: The Official Speculation Thread about John Hurt's "Secret" Doctor.
Wasn't aware there was a thread, sorry about that. Should this thread be pruned, or keep it?
Beyond that, I also think if he's the one who ended the Time War would be anticlimactic. And, it wouldn't be a secret, now would it? The secret is aimed at the viewers too, and all fans that watch the show know this.
But perhaps, if he has to be the 8.5 Doctor, he's the one that started the War?
IIRC, RTD's stance was that the Time Lords recruiting the Fourth Doctor in Genesis of the Daleks was actually the start of the war.
I didn't know that. Thats actually kind of genius, really.
But maybe he started the actual conflict, the actual War engagement, Hurt's Doctor? Just a thought.
"Spock...?" Kirk said, whispering.
"I am... most pleased to see again, Captain" Spock formally replied.
McCoy shook his head in disgust. "Oh, for crying out loud, Spock. Its been eighty years!"
"Seventy eight point four years, Doctor."
