** Besides, if the Doctor's regenerations keep getting young, [[FridgeLogic with enough of them he'll eventually become a baby]].


** Alternatively, the person the aged, forgetful Doctor mistakes for Barnable may be meant to be his great-grandson or something and is just meant to indicate how much time has passed, which is more a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming that the Doctor has safeguarded the lives of so many generations.

* There is a noted difference between Ten and Eleven's final moments. Ten dreaded the idea of "Some new man (that) goes sauntering away", because he'd consider that death. He partied hard and visited all his old companions and generally did everything he could to avoid thinking about the future and his final words were "I don't want to go!" By contrast, Eleven, once he stopped running away from the future by staying at Trenzalore, had over ''nine hundred'' (according to WordOfGod) years to think about the implications of his eventual death and his thoughts prior to regenerating were much more wistful and considered than Ten's. He spoke about how everyone changes and it's no good holding onto the past, but also the importance of remembering who you were, and his final words were "I will always remember when the Doctor was me." After saving Wilfred, the Doctor knew straight away that he was going to regenerate, but still compares it to dying. This time, he comes ''this close'' to ''actually dying'' and realises that regeneration is an infinitely better alternative. Eleven lived for centuries, even just in his last episode. Ten's lifetime lasted only a few years. Ten is the young man "too young to die" and Eleven is, to borrow a line from HarryPotter, the old man who greeted Death as an old friend, and went with him gladly, and as equals, they departed this life.

** He said it himself in "The Day of the Doctor" to the War Doctor that the previous doctors would not remember their meetings with him. So it makes sense that he would not remember the Twelfth Doctor now.

* Much attention has been given to the fact that PeterCapaldi is a lot older than MattSmith, and that this goes against the general rule of the Doctor regenerating into bodies that are younger than/approximately the same age as his current one. But considering that the Eleventh Doctor lived long enough to almost die of old age, he actually DID regenerate into a younger body when he became Twelve.

** Alternately, the Kovarian Silents were founded by Tasha ''after'' she became a Dalek puppet, because the Daleks hoped to eliminate him by siccing a fanatical Church splinter-group on Eleven earlier in his timeline.

** Barnable is nowhere to be seen after the second TimeSkip; the Doctor keeps asking for him whenever someone shows up to talk to him. Barnable is set up like a second Amelia, and the reason why the Doctor decided to stay in Trenzalore. He's the reason why the Doctor had given up by the end: Barnable died, and the Doctor couldn't handle a second instance of Amy's departure. In the end he was convinced that YouCantFightFate. [[ItGetsBetter Good thing Clara convinced the Time Lords to intervene]].
