Elizabeth I was called The Virgin Queen for a reason - she had no desire to take a husband, and she felt (and was) completely capable of ruling alone. What Moffat did was extremely disrespectful.
I disagree with you. Elizabeth I has encountered the Doctor many times over many of his generations. This whole marriage thing started with the 10th Doctor though. He mentioned to Ood Sigma that he married “Good Queen Bess” and implied that the marriage was consummated.
. And this episode was written by Russell T Davis.
Moffat was just adding to the back story already established.
