Whilst I was watching this weeks episode "Nightmare in Silver", I couldn't help but do a bit of a double-take during one of the sequences. Now, I realise that there are spoilers out there due to american dvd's being released early, and I've avoided that like the plague, but I'd like to cover my own theory on something.
The theory being that Matt Smith isn't the 11th Doctor, but actually the 12th.
Now, the reason I even consider that is a sequence that stood out in "Nightmare in Silver" where the Doctor and Cyber-Doctor see the previous forms of the Doctor inside his mind. They cycle through in sequence until the 11th Doctor is meant to appear - instead you see a "regeneration effect" and then after that you see Matt Smith's Doctor.

happens just after this and...
Now, it has been discussed that the prophecy in question about the "Fall of the 11th" is referring to Matt Smith's Doctor, but what if he is actually the 12th? That for some reason he isn't aware of the 11th Doctor. Could the fall of the 11th refer to this mysterious 11th Doctor?
Now, when I looked at this sequence and started to run through my idea I remembered back to Matt Smiths first proper Doctor episode "The Eleventh Hour" in which we saw a similar sequence of all previous incarnations play out. But interestingly when the 11th Doctor would have appeared in order, Matt Smiths Doctor walks through the image. At the time, I thought that was for effect, but what if he walked through when the face of the actual 11th Doctor should have appeared?

the image of the actual 11th?
