Re: A thought on regenerations (spoilers for "Night/Day of the Doctor"

For what it's worth, I agree that Steven Moffat didn't think this was the last regeneration when he created the scenes for Lake Silencio. My guess is he figured it out either after he decided to create John Hurt's character or he figured it out when he figured out what Trenzalore was. In either case, that happened around the same time.

It doesn't mean it's impossible to explain away the previous examples that might be inconsistent in a way that shows it's not inconsistent at all (in fact, no one should take Doctor Who so seriously as to refuse to accept that it's not consistent), but that doesn't mean Moffat had a master plan related to regenerations since the beginning (he didn't even know when Matt Smith was leaving since the beginning, after all).
