Anonymous asked: I'm not very familiar with classic who, but did other timelords travel around too, if so, why does he never bump into one?

In classic Doctor Who, the Doctor rarely encountered other Time Lords on his travels. This is because his home planet, Gallifrey, was a cloistered society with a strict rule of non-intervention in the affairs of other peoples and planets. In short; Time Lords, for the mostpart, were forbidden to leave Gallifrey, and those that did were usually criminals or renegades on the run.
Here’s a very brief rundown of those few Time Lords he did bump into during televised classic serials;
The Meddling Monk (The Time Meddler - 1965/The Daleks’ Master Plan - 1966) was not so much villainous as mischievous , and had a habit of changing established history just for kicks.
The War Chief (The War Games - 1969) was a renegade Time Lord who had allied himself with a race known as the War Lords. He provided the War Lords with the time-technology that allowed them to abduct entire armies from Earth’s history to use in their macabre war games.
The Master (Terror of the Autons - 1971/ongoing) the Doctor’s Moriarty.
Omega (The Three Doctors - 1973/Arc of Infinity - 1983) was the supreme Time Lord engineer and co-founder of Time Lord society. He was missing presumed dead until he struck back at his own people - who he believed had forsaken him - from the heart of a black hole.
Morbius (The Brain of Morbuis - 1976) was a former member of the High Council of Gallifrey who urged the Time Lords to use their vast powers for galactic conquest and empire-building. When his plans were rejected he rebelled, formed an army and attempted to usurp power. He was executed for his crimes, but his brain survived. A criminal surgeon named Solon built Morbius a new body, Frankenstein style.
Drax (The Armageddon Factor - 1979) was a personal friend of the Doctor who had gone AWOL from Gallifrey to become a sort of intergalactic tinker. A genius when it came to practical mechanics and electronics, but otherwise not overly-bright!
Romana (The Ribos Operation - 1978/Warriors Gate - 1980) - the Doctor’s companion, originally recruited (or, more accurately, tricked by the White Guardian posing as the President of Gallifrey) to assist in the search for the Key to Time, she refused to return to Gallifrey once the mission was accomplished and gained renegade status.
Salyavin (Shada - 1979) a Time Lord in possession of such extraordinary mental powers that, despite his kindly nature, was deemed as a threat to Gallifreyan Society and imprisoned in perpetuity in the Time Lord prison of Shada. His escaped went unnoticed due to his powers, and he retired to Cambridge, England to lead a quiet life as a University Professor under the alias of Professor Chronotis.
Azmael (The Twin Dilemma - 1984) was a former academy tutor and close friend of the Doctor. He retired to the planet Jaconda and became it’s benign ruler.
The Rani (Mark of the Rani - 1985/Time of the Rani - 1987) was exiled from Gallifrey for unethical genetic experiments. At some point she obtained a TARDIS, set herself up as despotic ruler of the planet Miasimia Goria and continued her nefarious work across time and space.
