INTERVIEWER: It strikes me as quite the contrary to expectation in a way, that because there have been so many takes on [Sherlock Holmes], there’s less pressure to conform to one of those.

GATISS: As Benedict [Cumberbatch] has said—for him, approaching a character that’s been played over 200 times before—one of the most liberating things is that there’s a big difference in this one.

And so, hopefully, this one can be mine.

I can own this one a bit more, because there’s a huge change with it being in the modern day.

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

it disturbs me that I never learned about Alan Turing in school and the only reason i ever found out who he was and what he did was because I looked him up after Benedict got the part. I think I should have learned about him.
