Did Moffat just confirm the 11 Doctors will return for the 50th?

The always-elusive Moff may have just spilled the proverbial beans.

People spoil things about their shows all the time. Not Steven Moffat, though. He's a crafty sort -- likes to lie, torture Doctor Who fans, give a cold stare every now and again. It's traumatizing! Apparently, though, while at a BBC Drama Commissions event, Moffat actually, gasp, said something about the show's 50th-anniversary special. A telling something, no less.

Getting the other Doctors involved would be very fitting for the anniversary episode, wouldn’t it?

If that had come from anybody else, we might say, "So what? Big deal!" But this is Steven Moffat we're talking about, and the man does not say things that are not calculated. So when he says that a multiple-Doctor story would be "fitting," that means it's almost definitely happening. He could be lying (as aforementioned, he does that), but it's hard to imagine anyone, even Moffat, faking out on something that big.

So what do you think? Are we off base here, or did Moffat just confirm that the 11 Doctors is really happening?
