John Hurt's "War Doctor" is added in between Eight and the one we thought was Nine, which means he is a real thing that definitely happened and counts.

I've been really, really quite careful about the numbering of the Doctors. He's very specific, the John Hurt Doctor, that he doesn't take the name of the Doctor. He doesn't call himself that. He's the same Time Lord, the same being as the Doctors either side of him, but he's the one who says, 'I'm not the Doctor'. So the Eleventh Doctor is still the Eleventh Doctor, the Tenth Doctor is still the Tenth.

Meanwhile, the first image from the Christmas special, The Time Of The Doctor, was released this week.
