If you worry about such things, and I do, then I specifically said John Hurt's Doctor doesn't use the title. [Matt Smith's Doctor] is in his 12th body but he's the 11th Doctor, however there is no such character as the 11th Doctor - he's just the Doctor - that's what he calls himself," revealed Steven Moffat about Doctor Who Christmas Special 2013 Episode Time of the Doctor as reported by scified.com
