Re: The Official Speculation Thread about John Hurt's "Secret" Doctor.
Above all, I fear I won't be looking at the special and think "I so
wish Christopher Eccleston was in this instead of John Hurt!"
Sure, he's a great actor, but I am hoping that the Ninth's part was simply outsourced, in lack of better description, into the 10th and 11th parts, and not have Hurt's Doctor simply be the result of Eccleston's lack of involvement.
But its Moffat, so... its possible.
"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."
