[QUOTE="StaticPenguin"]I don't see how he could have forgotten seeing as he just got through talking to his earlier incarnation condemning him for his actions. We'll see.
I read that John Hurt is supposed to be the 9th Doctor. He's supposed to be the one the Doctor "forgot" about after his actions during the Time War. Dunno how true that is but I could see it being the case.
That aside, the finale was awesome. I loved it and I cannot wait for November 23.
Yes, and he tells Clara that he is not the Doctor because he did something that the Doctor would never do. It's apart of the Doctor he refuses to acknowledge for his actions. So it's less like forgetting and more like denying.
