John Hurt's Doctor is in a kind of weird place as far as the numbering goes, since he was introduced after 9, 10, and 11 were already solidly numbered. I've seen a couple of discussions on the matter, but in general, yeah, he gets left out of the numbering. The explanation I like the best is that the Doctor dislikes what he had to do during that incarnation so much that (s)he thinks of him as someone else entirely.I'm definitely interested in seeing where they go from here, but more so because of the change of showrunner than actor. I like Smith and Capaldi, but just couldn't make myself care about the story arcs during Moffat's tenure. Never was able to quite put my finger on what it was, just couldn't click with it.
