Assuming that by "lifet" you mean "leave", he decided early on that he would only play the role for three years. In doing so he was following advice given to him by Patrick Troughton.

It also seems that he wasn't happy with his second year on the show, and that may have contributed to his decision to leave. (He later said that, had his second year been more like his third, he may have stayed for a fourth year.)
