"How quickly they forget."

"Who the hell are you?"
— A Jerkass Inforarium guard meets the Doctor... for the umpteenth time.

The one stuck on an endless repeat.

One of the three minisodes released with the Series 7 DVD, along with "Rain Gods" and "Clara and the TARDIS".

This one is set during that lull when the Doctor was traveling alone, and explains to some extent how he was erasing himself from existence.

As you can see by the tweed clothes, he has yet to endure the events of the Series 7A finale and go through his expository costume change.

What is the Inforarium?

The eponymous archive is an illicit Great Big Library of Everything, selling secrets to any unsavoury characters that would pay. Secrets including the Doctor. The same one trying to erase himself from history.

End result: the guardian of this database finds his records being breached, and upon investigation, triggers a recording from the Doctor (in his tweed ensemble, meaning this is pre-dePondification). Accurately predicting the guard's every response despite being just a message, the Doctor explains that he is removing all Doctor-related data from the Inforarium. The guard asserts that it is impossible to erase anything from the Inforarium, something about 12 layers of reality that not even the message-Doctor cares to respond to. What he does say is that thanks to reverse-engineered Silence tech, he can render his information memory-proof.

He then directs the guard to check his memory banks again, and vanishes from the Inforarium.
