How can you know that any of these will be used in the wider mythos? It is likely but surely too soon to tell? The Curator in particular seems a one-off bit of fanservice.

I think some of these elements are part of the wider mythos whether they're used again or not. The Doctor can speak with babies and animals now, whether he does it again or not. The Silence is what forced him to go into exile for hundreds of years, a significant part of his life. The Paternoster Gang, I wager, will play at least a small part in the twelfth Doctor's life, which means it's as relevant as Torchwood. Trenzalore is where he dies. The existence of the War Doctor modified our perception of the Doctor's life, and so did the Curator, and yes, I'm betting that we're going to see Kate again.

Re: The Doctor Who Mythos

How about Skaro's destruction of The Seventh Doctor and Half Human for The Eighth Doctor? Oh, and TARDIS can change desktop for Tenth Doctor (see Time Crash). No sonic screwdriver for Fifth Doctor?

Also, I wouldn't say The Curator was a big thing in the 11th Doctors era.

Excellent suggestions.

The absence of a core concept is not really a core concept in itself, in my opinion.

Also, I wouldn't say The Curator was a big thing in the 11th Doctors era.
I included it because the existence of the Curator means that the Doctor finds a way to go beyond the regeneration limit and that he uses familiar faces for some of his future lives. It's a bit of a game changer.

Re: The Doctor Who Mythos

OK, awesome.

In that case how about "Hands free" for the Fifth Doctor?????

Also, how about Brainy Specs and heightened taste buds for the fifth doctor?

Choice of next incarnation for the Second Doctor? (see The War Games)

Hasn't Moffat dismissed the whole half-human idea, saying that the Doctor was either lying or confused?

Also, was the 10th Doctor the first time we saw events happen to him out of order? River Song, Elizabeth I, Sally Sparrow etc?

Re: The Doctor Who Mythos

Some fans (including me) still like to believe the Doctor is half human. Plus the Master confirms that the Doctor is Half human in the film as he looks into his eyes and sees that they're human. Also in spin-off media the theme is re-used.

Confirmation in the thing that has been dismissed is hardly particularly useful. The fact that it has never been mentioned again means to me that it is in the same category as the idea that Superman accesses his powers by visualising a Lynx - an oddball idea that never took.

Yeah, it's not part of the Doctor Who mythos, it's part of the movie alone.

11 - Confirmation that Gender Change is possible in Regeneration

11 - TARDIS Navigation was never broken, she always too him where he needed to go

We had a taster of it in The Trial of a Time Lord, with him meeting Mel out of order, which probably would have been followed up on had Colin Baker not been fired. When that happened they had little choice but to jump ahead to Mel having travelled with him for some time. The spin-off media explored it, but it was never really done properly until Moffat came along.

"Time-wimey" plots are therefore something that could come under the Tenth Doctor era?

I suppose we can add to that the idea that the TARDIS "stole" the Doctor as much as vice versa, although that seemed to be undone by the Great Intelligence and put right again by Clara, who steered him to the "right" TARDIS.

There was also the ability to open & close the T.A.R.D.I.S. doors with the snap of a finger introduced during the 10th Doctors era.
In The Day of The Doctor it seems that Clara can do it now as well.
