There are so many stories in both classic and new Who where the plot of the whole story is based around a writers thoughts and opinions. That kind of bias will always seep in because I suspect it's easier to write what you know and feel than it is to write something that you don't believe in or stand for. I think the trick though is to make a story enjoyable so that it doesn't offend the views of the viewer. I remember reading an interview where RTD said that Gridlock was written out of his frustration with religion and his own atheist beliefs but you wouldn't necessarily watch it and think that the writer was trying to convince you to abandon religion or that he had written an anti-god story. It struck a good balance. That's what is most important. I think this sort of thing only becomes an issue when a story leans so much into the issue that it's telling you how you should think on the issue. It's a bias that runs in many shows but I don't think it's something this one has ever been guilty of
