The story we have been discussing here seems more and more likely to be correct - this trailer gives the game away given what we know:
Yup, well done to the original leaker.

It is funny that this person manages to reveal the whole thing and stays annonymous and then you get those other people who get the occasional little bit of information and play it up for all its worth.

So I'm sticking with my theory that the big reveal at the end the name of the Doctor is that his name is Twelve and they work this out because Clara saves a Doctor they don't know.

The encounters aren't supposed to be specific scenes from existing stories. They're "cutting" the Doctors out of past episodes and dropping them into new footage, which sidesteps most of the technical problems you'd have with trying to do it the other way round. (Which was the mani reason I was doubtful of the claims originally.)

I know that, I was more wondering if the background was suppose to in space? The Tardis?

Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

I wonder if we'll see John Hurt at the end.

If RTD were behind this, I think the probability would be 100%. The only season that didn't end with a cliffhanger-ish "What? What? What?" situation was the fourth (though RTD did write a scene to lead into "The Next Doctor" and it was filmed, but it was also cut).

Moffat hasn't ended his seasons that way. He's treated his specials as concrete units of their own in the past. I'm not sure why he would change that now.

Though maybe he will this time. Six months of people going, "Who was John Hurt playing?" wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

I don't know, everyone has already figured it out, and John Hurt himself kind of admitted it in an interview. The smart thing for Moffat would be to confirm it anytime now, to avoid the kind of mistake Abrams made keeping Benedict Cumberbatch's role in STID a secret for so long. Now that that it is confirmed who his character is, everyone's attitude is "well duh, why was it kept a secret for so long?" Lesson learned, secrecy doesn't build hype, it kills it.

I had a feeling this would have been tacked on regardless

With Moffat it will probably be

"No you see the hurt doctor DOES EXIST.... but in an aborted time line two streets down from the butchers shop"

^ Looks like Colin Baker's Doctor in the background in the ever present TARDIS corridor!

There's no mistaking that rainbow colored getup.

It does look creepy with the 6th doctor walking in the background like some ghost.

It's reminiscent of the scenes in Journey to the Center of the TARDIS that showed the future and past echoes. Clearly foreshadowing the finale.

And some more photos. There's zero doubt on the accuracy of those original spoilers now.

Looks like they're going to try to make up for the lack of past Doctors in the anniversary special.

Forgive me for being "that guy" but can we be sure of the accuracy of these pictures? After all, that picture of Clara in the TARDIS corridor is in the promo, but without Colin Baker. Although, playing devil's advocate, since C. Baker was certainly spliced in Trials and Tribble-ations style, they could have easily used a rough cut for the promo. And Gallifrey does look too professional to be a fan job.

The Colin Baker one is from the BBC's own site.
