He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

RTD used to say that the reason he used the same names throughout a lot of his shows (Smith, Tyler, Jones, etc) was so that he could get a grasp on the character while he was writing them because it made more sense to him that way. Perhaps the same could be said of this era with Moff??

This is a good train of thought, and I think perhaps the most likely. If you want a futuristic setting then it makes sense to go with what you know, especially if you want to avoid conflicts with canon and stuff like that.

Perhaps as well by going to the 51st Century you are nice and clear of any social/political predictions as to how the world may turn out? With it being so far away you aren't going to end up with any "Tenth Planet" style discordance with Antarctic mission controls for the British Space Programme in the mid 1980s
