Was the Trenzalore shown in "The Name of The Doctor" an alternate future happening if The Doctor spoke his true name at the crack ? Or is it still his future ? What I mean to ask is, Trenzalore held a very dark ending for the Doctor, and the Trenzalore shown in "Name of The Doctor" looks somewhat similar to Gallifrey in its fall. So what about that? My speculation here is that:
- The Doctor did not speak his name, failed to regenerate and hence the mass devastation of Trenzalore and "the fall of the eleventh" resulting in his grave there.
- The Doctor did speak his name, Gallifrey returned, and Trenzalore got caught in the crossfire. And the rest goes similar to point 1, "fall of the eleventh" and so on.
So all in all, is the outcome of Trenzalore as shown in The Name of The Doctor related to the events of The Time of the Doctor? Would that have been the Doctor's fate had he not got the extra regenerations from Gallifrey?
