In Season Two of the Doctor Who remount, episode 11, we got a glimpse of the future (at the time--the episode aired in 2008). The future... the year 2012. In which the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) ran the Olympic Flame to the London Olympics.
WE SAW THE FUTURE. IT MIGHT HAPPEN. YOU NEVER KNOW. RIGHT?
