Scarf! I wonder if there's a particular reason she's wearing it, or if it's just a mere visual gag.

Anyway, larger watermark-less versions of these images can be found here, along with interviews with Moffat and the cast.

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

Moffat talks about John Hurt's Doctor.

Based on some things here, I think it's unlikely there's going to be any McGann-to-Hurt regeneration shot unless they use vintage Hurt footage from another BBC program:

We are saying ‘This isn’t a Doctor who’s just appeared, he’s been around, he’s been in this form for a while.’ So one of the notes was make it look as though he’s been knocking around in this incarnation for a bit. [SNIP] He asked if he could keep his beard, and I looked at it and I thought actually, he looks quite good with it. And it’s another indicator that he’s not a fresh-born Doctor. We didn’t want to imply that he’d just been around for a little while. There’s a whole lot of stuff you missed! It’s a nice thing to be able to say in the show, and for no one to be able to contradict you, that there were years that you didn’t know about… we lied and lied, there’s a whole big old chapter you didn’t know.

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

I don't see how that directly contradicts it. The Master regenerated INTO a beard (granted, not traditionally) when he took Tremas' body; and likewise the Doctor's hair always changes length and consistency when he renews himself - and by Ten's own admission, he could even be bald naturally when it's all said and done. I think that the beard fits the "look" that Moffat was after in that Hurt's Doctor has been around the block. I interpret that as that THIS Doctor is one who sums up all the battle weariness, murderous intent, violence and warmongering of all the previous incarnations, IMO by design.

My theory is that this incarnation was a choice, not an accident or caused by Eight cutting his lip on an envelope or something. This Doctor was one with a purpose.

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

^ That's what I'm thinking too. Possibily forcibly regenerated by the Time Lords, ala War Games, but instead of just choosing the appearance, picked some traits as well. Or some other method of injecting purpose into that regeneration.

The Master was turned into a weapon in the time war so maybe the Doctor was too.

The timelords force the doctor into the hurt doctor.

The hurt doctor does unspeakable acts. Without thinking of the consequences he unleashes "The moment"

It ends the war and somehow the hurt doctor is turned back to Mcgann

The 8th doctor still holds memories of the hurt doctor

Events happened and didn't happen at the same time

Badly wounded the returned 8th doctor regenerates properly into Ecchelston.

Looks like we're finally getting a real trailer for "The Day of the Doctor" on Saturday.

Hope the ones that will see it, will enjoy it. Personally, I think I will wait just a wee bit longer for the actual special itself.

Do we know how the time war started? Maybe the Hurt Doctor could have been responsible for it.

"Genesis of the Daleks" is supposed to be one of the first skirmishes of the Time War, but that could be changed.

^ Like, maybe after #4 couldn't destroy the Daleks, Hurt came in and did, or at least tried to.
