Re: The Official Speculation Thread about John Hurt's "Secret" Doctor.

One of the articles I read (don't remember which one or where) said that Hurt is going to be the 9th Doctor and that everyone else is being shifted making Matt Smith the 12th Doctor. They're supposed to explain it on the show.
What I don't understand is, the 8th died during the War, and its assumed that the 9th actually ended it - and he made that statement towards that one Dalek, too.

What I fail to understand is, if this is a Time War Doctor, why is he a secret? The 9th very visibly was the post-War Doctor, but he aknowledged the events anyway. And the 10th Doctor even elaborated on it greatly, especially in the End of Time two-parter. So what could the Doctor have done that would even constitute as a secret during that era, I ask.
"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."
