In television, whether it be comedy, drama or documentaries, there are individuals whose names you may know but not the face or whose face you may know but not the name. In the case of Mark Gatiss, this is brilliance that you should know both the name and the face. His involvement in numerous series and specials on both sides of the pond over the years have provided us with some of the best television on television from documentaries to comedy and drama.
We had the incredible good fortune of talking with Mark last Fall along with co-conspirator, Steven Moffat, as both were gearing up to not only write episodes for the new season of Doctor Who but making plans for Sherlock 2. Would have loved to have talked League of Gentlemen and Psychoville, but, sadly, that discussion had to be left for another day. Without question, one of the most creative and nicest individuals ever.
I could go on and on, but then we’d be here all day. So, to give you a glimpse of Mark’s efforts on both sides of the camera, this was the easiest way….
