Default New Doctor?

Peter Capaldi is "stepping down" as the Doctor.

Have to believe this was a euphemism for him being fired.

Will be interesting to see if the show just takes a hiatus, or if they make the effort to do something tangential to reinvigorate the franchise a bit. I've been watching some of the old Tom Baker episodes on the local pbs, and I kind of wish they would just do something random, like say, have the next iteration follow a regenerated version of Romana (perhaps even bring back Lalla Ward for the first episode), rather than have yet another regeneration of the Doctor. They never did explain what happened to her after she decided to ditch (probably because he and Lalla's real life marriage was falling apart) Tom Baker's version of the Doctor.
