54: Mark Gatiss – Stories can make us fly: how to see and observe

Change Makers: Leadership, Good Business, Ideas and Innovation

Mark rose to prominence 25 years ago, as part of the hugely influential team behind The League of Gentlemen. Alongside Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson, the four brought their unique brand of humour to the mainstream, creating a critically-acclaimed series combining laughter, irreverence and horror. Mark’s career has taken him from Dr Who to Dracula, Wolf Hall to Westeros and perhaps most notably, 221B Baker Street as the co-creator of the BBC’s Sherlock alongside Steven Moffatt, where he also took a star turn as the eponymous Holmes’ brother, Mycroft. A story Mark is helping to tell today is that of Britain’s LGBTQ+ history, as a supporter of Queer Britain.

BERGCAST – Episode 15 – Mark Gatiss on the legacy of Nigel Kneale


Mark Gatiss referred to Nigel Kneale as “the man who invented popular television”.  It can be a curse of a writer tagged as ‘genre’ that they may never been seen alongside the very best. As Mark said when Kneale died, “He is amongst the greats – he is absolutely as important as Dennis Potter, as David Mercer, as Alan Bleasdale, as Alan Bennett, but I think because of a strange snobbery about fantasy or sci-fi, it’s never been quite that way.” In this episode, we chat with Mark about his love for Nigel Kneale’s work, his influence and his legacy. Mark recalls the one time he met the man himself and how he tried to get greater industry recognition for Kneale. He also talks about following in the Nigel’s footsteps by adapting Wells’s The First Men in the Moon, and the experience of making The Quatermass Experiment in 2005.
