I've lost track of how many times I've rewatched this teaser.  So much is going on in every shot that I have to hit the pause button every two or three seconds.  Pure genius.

 Okay...I still can not wait...but something just occurred to me.  Keep in mind, that I am a very new fan of The Doctor.  I have yet to see any of the "original" episodes, but I've seen all of the 2005 series till now...so here's a question for all of the long time fans...

Matt Smith is the 11th incarnation of The Doctor, and apparently John Hurt is a 12th incarnation, but is not allowed The Doctor title.  The Doctor is at least 900 years old currently.  In the episodes with The Master, we saw that without benefit of regeneration, Time Lords can and do age much the same that humans do - when The Master aged David Tennant an additional 900 years, he looked like a mash up of Dobby and Smeagol for crying out loud.

I guess my question is, why don't any incarnations of The Doctor seem to age?  Am I overthinking it, or is my logic just all wibbly wobbly?

Peter Capaldi id the 12th Doctor, John Hurt is the 'lost' Doctor, which could mean he is the 'original' incarnation and that Hartnell was simply the first regeneration and not actually the first Doctor...

@Sarcastic Caveman... yeah that whole gollum/dobby thing was just bad writing... They just thought it would look cool without really thinking it through...

The John Hurt incarnation is, apparently the one who fought the Time War (and wiped out the Time Lords in the process), and isn't called The Doctor because of his actions.  If you look at his outfit, it even looks like a blend of the clothes 8 and 9 wore.

In The Impossible Astronaut, we see two versions of The Eleventh Doctor, about 200 years apart in age yet they look identical. Since TIA shows aging in real time while the aging done by the laser screwdriver was artificial, it can be explained that either the settings or the technology behind the screwdriver was wrong and aged The Doctor way more than 100 (later 1,000) years.

My thinking is...its the Human Doctor from Bad Wolf. Thats why David Tennant and Billie Piper are in it. He's the Doctor..and has all his memories...but he ages.
