The Doctor is only nine hundred odd years old. He really can't have been everywhere and seen everything in a universe of millions of galaxies that is some 15 billion years old. I do wish the new series would get off the omniscient and omnipresent Doctor routine that has him having affected and changed just about every civilization he runs into.
Well the Doctor is lying about his age in the 1963-1989 era we heard an age closer to the 1000 year mark.
As for the Galaxy being 15bn years old, remember we've seen him travel to Event One (The Big Bang) and the year 100 trillion, to almost the end of the Universe. So he has had far more than 15bn years to play in.
Yes sometimes when the Doctor comes to visit he impacts a civilisation as a whole, sometimes it's more of a personal impact.
