The Incredibly Gracious Mark Gatiss Chats

Actor, Writer and co-creator of the BBC series Sherlock, Mark Gatiss as Mycroft Holmes sitting in Buckingham Palace

I told you mess with me and I'd write you the longest, high-speed, deduction monolog in the history of television

For those of you who missed it, Mr. Mark Gatiss, who not only co-created and writes for the BBC series Sherlock but plays Mycroft Holmes, did a lively live chat on the PBS.org site. Check out the replay and read the entire transcript.

Thank you so much Mr. Gatiss for taking the time and being so forth coming and patient with all of the questions. I hope you had a least a little fun.

Congratulations to Steven Moffat for Winning BAFTA Writing Award

It should come as no surprise given the exceptional work Mr. Moffat has been doing for some time in screenwriting. His Dr. Who scripts were regularly heralded as both fan and critical favorites long before he took over the helm for the iconic series and his work on the landmark BBC series Sherlock has been breathtaking.

So let us all raise a glass of our favorite beverage of choice to Mr. Steven Moffat, winner of the 2012 BAFTA Craft Award for writing for his work on the BBC series Sherlock. Here’s the link to BBC’s initial coverage of the BAFTA Craft Awards: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-18056286
