I posted this link in another thread, but it seem appropriate to post it here too. BBC has changed the page on their site about all of the Doctors to add John Hurt. Since they haven't changed the numbering, I guess it's official that the John Hurt Doctor falls outside of the numbering.

Mixed feelings about that. I think he should be counted as the ninth regeneration, but I understand how it could mess up a lot of merchandising.

They could still change it down the road, as in the new year when Capaldi shows up.

After all, in the Day of the Doctor, Capaldi's Doctor was called the 13th.

The actual name the 13th Doctor was not used though.

Sorry Cat, I know you want Hurt to be officially the Ninth Doctor, under that name, but if BBC were planning to make the change they would have done so now, not later down the road.

Well, the characters don't call themselves by the numbers. That's for the fans to differentiate between the various incarnations.

I don't think there is an "officially" in that case. It's up to the fans.

I'm perfectly fine referring to Hurt as 9 from now on. I don't care if it confuses anyone. :D

I'm not splitting hairs, the simple fact is that the names First Doctor, Second Doctor, Third Docter, etc.. are names that have always been used out of universe. The character, in show, has always just called himself the Doctor with no numbering distinction between his different incarnations. In the end it's up to BBC, and the names they use on their merchandising, to decide what the different incarnations are called. It seems that they have and Tennant is still the Tenth Doctor, Smith is still the Eleventh Doctor and Hurt is the War Doctor. Most fans will probably follow suit due to it be easier not to use names different from what is on the DVDs, t-shirts, etc.. that they own.
