"Doctor Who"

Mark Gatiss has been one of the biggest foundations in BBC's science fiction series "Doctor Who." He devoted almost his early writing career to the show and has written almost every episode since its comeback following its cancellation in 1989. He is also one of the reasons why the show has been soaring high in the small screens, which has earned a staggering millions of audiences worldwide. However, it seems that the veteran writer and actor is uncertain of his future in the popular series and said that being one of the showrunners is the most difficult job he's done in television.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the "Doctor Who" writer said that he is uncertain of writing more for the series as he'd been doing it for years. However, he also said that he loves the show and he would "never say never" although his long years of working in the series definitely has the feeling of the end of an era. "I'd be very happy to do some more [of the show]. But I have to see where Chris Chibnall is going to take it," he said referring to another writer, who will replace Steven Moffat in 2018. "I'm actually excited about seeing it without knowing anything about it."

Gatiss is also one of the casts in "Doctor Who" and said that he can't do both acting and writing for the show. He told Radio Times that showrunning the series will put too much weight on his behalf and he knows that there are millions of viewers expecting a great show from him. He went on to say that it's way better that people won't say that there are others who can do better than him. For him, it's a relief.

Apart from "Doctor Who," Mark Gatiss is also known for acting and writing for the TV series "Sherlock." He is also known for his role in HBO's fantasy epic series "Game of Thrones" as Tycho Nestoris. The English actor and writer is also a member of a comedy team called "The League of Gentlemen."
