Mark Gatiss: The Sherlock special is the first time Steven Moffat and I have written together
This year’s Christmas special will be the first time Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat have collaborated on a script.
“Over the years we’ve always been across each other’s Sherlock scripts because we want it to be holistic,“ says Gatiss in this week’s issue of Radio Times. “But the upcoming episode is the first time we’ve actually written together.”
The programme is likely to air at Christmas, and Gatiss is optimistic that it’s the start of a longer term partnership.
“It’s been a real joy,” he says. “I think it will carry on for the next series.”
