I don’t think the 11th Doctor will ever leave Trenzalor.  I think the 50th and the Christmas special will happen there.  He is still there at the season finale, it provides an old school story arch, he’s messed up in his own timeline (so Tennant makes sense), and the idea that he’ll escape Trenzalor and then fall just seems wrong.

Now – why is John Hurt there?  Is there a Doctor Prime / central embodiment?  So the 11th falls at the same place where his (and the TARDIS) will ultimately die?
