Not really.
You sure? The Cartmel Masterplan is were the "there's a big secret about the Doctor" stuff started.

The First Doctor had many secrets. In the beginning his name (which is still a secret of some kind), his time/place of origin and why he was seemingly exiled from his home were all mysteries.
One always came off as deeming those details as unimportant rather than being secretive about them. So I see those as omissions rather than secrets.

The Cartmel Masterplan was an attempt to re-inject some mystery into the Doctor after much of his origins had been revealed over the first 25 years of the program.
I know the reason for it but, it's like an awful fanfic.

I mean honestly, a reincarnation of one of founding members of Time Lord society The Other. Not to mention the looms.
