    I agree!

It's quite simply possible that the young doctor for whatever reason felt cool with those kind of things and why he didn't venture beyond those points in time where anything else would matter. Also, I've never been a fan of the idea that progression is linear, that societies never scale back or that a technologically advanced society isn't capable of closed minded beliefs. All of those ideas are rather...colonial/imperialist rubbish if you ask me.
    Dude, the fact it is going back to "then" is why it should NOT be retconned, it's where the doctor was THEN Vs where the doctor is NOW.
    As for society. it's irrelevant, the doctor is not part of time lord society so their failures have no bearing on the doctor.

    No, but he has stayed away from TL society for most of his life, oftentimes -because- the Doctor viewed it as regressive and puffed up pomp and circumstance.

    Doctor 10 mentioned a couple of times having a family back home and his parents. I am pretty sure he had his own children back on Galifrey too but for whatever reason abandoned them.

    As opposed to his sexism? But I think you missed my point point early on.

    I didn't miss it, the doctor was written that way at the time, he died that way as well.

    That would be Susan the forgotten companion..... He chucked her out the TARDIS and left her

    Which means he must have had at least one child of his own, not including 'Jenny'.

    I think her name was Miranda or something from the expanded universe of novels and audio recordings.

    I actually thought it was brilliant to do it that way. It showed the growth the Doctor had throughout the series and provided some continuity. If he was just written with modern sensibilities, I think it would take away from the changes the Doctor has been through, as well as the effect his companions had on him.
