* AwesomeDearBoy: He said that his role on ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}'' was his favorite. He said that since he grew up a huge fan of Creator/ChristopherLee and Film/HammerHorror films, getting to play the ''Being Human''-verse equivalent of Dracula was a dream come true.
* DyeingForYourArt: Dyed his hair darker for the part of Mycroft Holmes in ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''.
* OldShame: His and Creator/DavidWalliams' 1999 ''Series/DoctorWho'' sketch "The Pitch of Doom" had a line in which Walliams' character seemingly dismisses the post-Creator/TomBaker Doctors as talentless nobodies. He regretted the line as soon as the sketch was broadcast, and ensured that it was removed for all subsequent airings.

* TrollingCreator: Has been taking lessons in the art from Creator/StevenMoffat. And acing them. Damn him.
* WrittenByCastMember: Co-wrote ''Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen'', ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''.

That makes him the ''only'' person to write ''and'' appear in the ''Doctor Who'' TV series no less than four five times.

!!Exhibits Examples of:

* AlanSmithee: Goes by the name "Sam Kisgart" in promotional material for [[spoiler: his role as TheMaster in Unbound [[Radio/BigFinishDoctorWho Doctor Who]]]], not because he disliked it, but as a [[MythologyGag homage]] to the original series' attempts to hide Anthony Ainsley in the credits of his era as [[spoiler:TheMaster]].
* CreatorCameo: Plays (uncredited both times) a Spitfire pilot in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks "Victory of the Daleks"]] and "A Good Man Goes to War". His first appearance as Mycroft Holmes in ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' was uncredited and intended as a cameo, but the character quickly became a much more significant part of the show.

Gatiss is a long-time big ''Doctor Who'' fan, to put it mildly; he has written for eight of the Doctors, wrote and acted in three official approved spoofs and contributed to seven ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' audios. Topping all of that though are his writing credits for the television show proper; [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E3TheUnquietDead "The Unquiet Dead"]] for Nine, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E7TheIdiotsLantern "The Idiot's Lantern"]] for Ten, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks "Victory of the Daleks"]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E9NightTerrors "Night Terrors"]]", [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E8ColdWar "Cold War"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror "The Crimson Horror"]] for Eleven [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E3RobotOfSherwood "Robot of Sherwood"]], and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E9SleepNoMore "Sleep No More"]] for Twelve.
