Soooo is John Hurt supposed to be The Valeyard? That's kinda the impression I got and the Great Intelligence even mentions The Valeyard.

I wonder if we'll see more colorizing of past Doctors in the 50th anniversary special. Seems like a good way to pay tribute to the past Doctors without having all the incarnations meet and interact. (As discussed elsewhere, while it's fun, it's difficult to manage. See: The Five Doctors.)

EDIT: Just seen on Tumblr, GIF of 8's cameo:

And more Tumblring... Here's a gifset theorizing that we haven't seen the last of River, even post-Library. (Put in spoiler tag for anyone who doesn't like how heavy these are.)

She has two human parents, so I'm going to say that she's human?

Although I wouldn't be opposed to having another Time Lord or Lady showing up, I am SO glad they didn't go that route with Clara.

Here's a deleted scene that shouldn't have been cut: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvZMSrktskw&feature=player_embedded This would've been a better opener than spoiling the Clara reveal by playing it at the beginning of the episode.

Eh... I sort of agree, but I can see why they cut it. It sort of kills the intrigue of the Whispermen and spells out the early action of the episode -- thus arguably negating the need to show it, and the actual scenes were more interesting than this summary. But since the Whispermen were basically throwaway characters whose sole function was to look spooky, it's not like their intrigue ever got capitalized on anyway.

Yeah the Whispermen scene doesn't really tell you anything you couldn't understand by context later, but I still think it's a better use of runtime than repeating the Clara meets the Doctors sequence. Ideally I'd prefer a scene that explains the wibbley-wobbley timey-wimey to either.
