Fuck you then, I will never call Tennant the eleventh doctor, or Matt smith the twelfth. It never sounds right.

While i agree that it sounds wrong it's none the less true in the technical sense.

Does he really count though
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I think most people are going with some other designation for Hurt other than a number. I don't think one particular name has become the term all fans use yet but I don't think anyone is ever going to call Tennant 11 or Smith 12.

Okay dokey then, War Doctor describes him pretty well and also sounds cool. I can't speak for anyone else but that is probably the designation I will use. It sounds better than the anti Doctor or the not doctor anyway

Wasn't the whole point of the 50th that he redeemed himself enough to be called The Doctor?

The episode changes nothing, what was shown is what always happened, they just don't remember it happening, therefore, he still wouldn't see himself as being redeemed. He completely forgot about everything he did to save Gallifrey because of some timey wimey thing. Something about time not being in sync from when the Doctors' all met each other or something.

Also, Random Q. - Is the next Doctor going to be the last Doctor?
Why not?

I think yeah. During the Moment they mention that there's 13 of them and capaldi was shown after it was spoke so it's entirely possible that he's the last.

You're asking me why Moffat does what he does. Might as well ask me the meaning of life

I'm talking about a show that still can have infinitely more life in it, and then they possibly decided to bring it really close to killing off the main character that has stood for 50 years.

And you are gonna be okay with that?

I've come to the point where i can accept when a show has run its course. Do i feel that Doctor Who has run its course? absolutely not. The show has become way more popular than it ever was in the 70's so it would be foolish of the BBC to end it now. But you have to take into account that in 2 years it will be the 10 year anniversary of the rebirth of the show and now with a final goal in the doctors life it's going to end some day.

Did Moffat actually say he wanted us to call him the 9th Doctor from now on?

Also at the end 4th implies that at some point he will revisit old forms. So how in the hell can Copaldi be the last. But thinking about it from a story point of view, they will definitely write the trenzalor story some time soon because the writers seem to hate sitting on a good story idea for too long. But it will probably end predictably with to Doctor faking his death somehow because they can't actually kill him off and they can't reference a future plot and do nothing about it for a decade.

^That right there. His regenerations were his attempt to make up for what he had done. They were his forms of atonement. He ended up renouncing himself as the Doctor in his original body.
Why not?

Actually, the ratings are about the same, if not lower. According to the wiki.
