Re: One last surprise?
I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a Night of the Doctor style regeneration for Hurt in the 50th or in the other mini episode. I doubt Eccleston will actually return even for a brief regeneration scene.
I'm hoping for another Moffat misdirection. A few seconds of footage from Eccleston is all that is needed.
My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone's. It's taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I'm going, where I've always been going. Home...The long way round.
