Questions about the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who

So, The Day of the Doctor…
I liked it.  I really did.  I just have some questions.
I’m not being mean but was Billy Piper preggers? That would account for the odd costume that was sort of flow-y.
Why was Clara teaching, and there?  What happening to the kids she was watching?  There was a throwaway line in Nightmare in Silver that leads us to believe that the girl was going to grow up to be Liz 10 or was that just me?
Speaking of Cybermen, why was there a head in the Dark Vault?  Also was I the only person who noticed the painting with the cybermen?  It looked liked “Washington Crossing the Delaware”
Is 11 still going to Trenzalore? Could that be where Galifrey now is?
If all 13 regenerations are used what happened to the Valeyard?  Do River Songs Regenerations count?  How many did she give him?  And how come the Master can regeneration as many times as he D@m* well pleases?!?!
Did anyone else notice?  The book 11 is reading in the Tardis is almost the same as the one the Men In Black when they are testing Will Smith and he shoots the little girl in the head for reading quantum mechanics in a bad neighborhood filled with aliens. Back to the future is actually mentioned by name.
Why were the Gallifrian children dancing around a maypole?  Besides the fact the city is at war, would Gallifry have a May or Maypole dance which was a fertility rite and religious celebration?
Also what happened to Leela and the bands of roving warrior tribes?  I saw Time Lord High Council, Regular Time Lords, and some sort of robot warriors as introduced in The Night of The Doctor, but no true warriors.
I don’t understand why Osgood was weak.  She was supposed to be the daughter of a military man.  She should be tough.  The only read I could get on it was that it made her Zygon correspondingly weak.  Or that like in Superman Returns half-breeds have lung-issues and that’s why she has the scarf. Thing about trying to meld a binary and regular cardiovascular system in one person! That would certainly require an inhaler!
I would have liked a better look into John Hurt’s Tardis.  It looked interesting.  BTW, what do we call his character?  Is he 8.5, 8 ver 2.0?, 9,? The war Doctor? The Warlord? Late to dinner?  Whatever we call him, I hope we get to see more of him, even if it’s just flashbacks!
I thought of something else.  We have always called the Doctor the mad man in the blue box.  Did you notice almost all the Doctors wear hats.  The saying mad as a hatter comes from the fact that they used to use mercury to make hats.  The Doctor’s not mad, he just has mercury poisoning.
There were some inconsistencies in Clara’s character too.  Half the time she seem to know the Doctor’s other faces, the other times she didn’t.  Also if she erased the Daleks’ memory of the Doctor in AofD why do they remember him on Gallifry?
The Vortex manipulator in the Tower Vault wasn’t Jack’s.  His code was an oscillating number on the end.  I believe between 2 and 7. (The Stolen Earth)
What happened to everything else that was fighting the Time War?  The Nightmare Child?  The Nevermores?
