"On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the eleventh, when no living creature can speak falsely or fail to answer, a Question will be asked, a question that must never, ever be answered."

"Silence will (must?) fall when the Question is asked".

So. We got some answers, didn't we? That Clara-mystery is over and done with. But this prophecy...

I don't know, guys. Has this happened now? Was it this that The Silence tried to stop? The whole thing's a bit iffy. It makes sense though, but I don't see the whole "a question [The Doctor's] been running from all his life" - isn't he running more TOWARDS his death? No? He might be running FROM "John Hurt Doctor" though.

The whole thing is very muddied. I'm hoping we get some more, clearer, answers in the 50th. Also, I'm really hoping Hurt has done more than just Time War-shenanigans. In addition, I'm kinda hoping that the character's name is John Hurt - it would be very cool, with The Doctor changing his name to "Hurt" and then later "Doctor", to fix his mistakes. John is just there because it's the name he uses when he needs one - John Smith, for instance.
