Since “The day of the Doctor”, show runner Steven Moffat has announced that Matt Smith is the 13th incarnation of our favourite time lord.
This is because of John Hurt’s role as “The war Doctor” spent one regeneration, and David Tennant (incarnation from ‘05 to ‘10) spent one after being shot by a Dalek in “The stolen earth”.
All of this adds up to 12 regenerations and 13 bodies.
Now now, don’t fret, because Steven Moffat has earlier said that “He can’t simply end a show with such a massive fan base.” So with that said, here’s my theory:
Peter Capaldi is already announced as the next incarnation. That much is said.
***THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR” SPOILERS START HERE***
SO! In the end of “The day of the Doctor”, the Doctor, and all of his 13 incarnations, INCLUDING Peter Capaldi, saves Gallifrey from destruction. At the very end, the Doctor hints that he will try to find his home. My theory is, that when the Doctor finds Gallifrey, he is rewarded with a new embodiment. His current “being” is worn out of regenerative powers, and thusly can’t regenerate when it dies. So, since he saved Gallifrey, the time lords may bestow upon him a new body. “the Doctor’s” time stream is buried within the TARDIS at Trenzalore, so therefore, he will be a completely new being. But, they may preserve his mind and put it in his new body, played by Peter Capaldi, and then make him enter the time stream of “the Doctor” to give him back all his memories.
As for the TARDIS, they will probably give him a completely new machine, and put the matrix from the old in the new one. As for the matrix in the new TARDIS, it might be set into the old machine, and given the task of only letting people who knows “the Doctor’s” name into the console room.
So there it is. That’s it. My theory for what will happen after the Christmas special.
