'The mistake—if that’s a fair description—was for the Whostorian to have tracked only one of the Doctor’s iterations. Surely, someone so deeply invested in tracking the Doctor’s actions would have figured out (at least) that there were multiple figures on that path, even if he didn’t figure out they were different forms of the same guy.'

He did. Clive, played by Mark Benton, specifically says 'that's your Doctor there, isn't it?' Suggesting that there are other Doctors. he is just showing Rose evidence of the Eccleston one.

Here's that scene:

Actually, his reference to “the Doctor” being an inherited title makes a much better case for him being aware of the multiple iterations. Doesn’t help with him somehow knowing the latest version is Rose’s.

We know they have had e-mail conversations before meeting. Might his appearance have come up?
