Hold up a moment.
I knew that sounded familiar.
Remember the Silence and their prophecy?
“On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the eleventh, when no living creature can speak falsely or fail to answer, a Question will be asked, a question that must never, ever be answered.”
The question being, “The First Question, the oldest question in the Universe, that must never be answered, hidden in plain sight.”
According to Dorium Maldovar the Doctor would visit Trenzalore at some point in his travels, which would coincide with ‘the Fall of the Eleventh’.
The Silence were determined that the Doctor never reach Trenzalore, so that the question would never be answered. HEY, LOOK WHO JUST WENT TO TRENZALORE?
Are Madame Kovarian and the Great Intelligence in league together? What if the Silents and the Whisper Men related? (They certainly both remind me of Slender Man.)
I’m really suspicious about this one who broke the promise. Is he the Valeyard?
Oh, sweet baby Rassilon, what does Steven Moffat have in store for us?
I’m sort of scared now.
The Valeyard was described as being the incarnation between the Doctor’s Twelfth and Thirteenth regenerations. Seems like Moffat’s hinting Hurt’s Doctor is between Eight and Nine and the one responsible for ending the Time War and Gallifrey. But if the Doctor’s regenerations have been bumped up and Eleven is actually Twelve, then we should be seeing the Valeyard soon.
