 Is it just me, or does John Hurt have an American accent?

 I think that Hurt plays John Smith, who was trapped in the alternate Universe with Rose, as an old man. He does something terrible and the two Doctor's have to stop him.

I had those same thoughts myself Bob. Since he has all the doctors knowledge...he is the doctor...but not THE Doctor. As we all know...the Doctor can never sit still....even human ones. Thats the reason for the Bad Wolf in the poster..as well as having David and Billie come back. So i'm thinking he's done something terrible..*in the Doctors name*
