Mark Gatiss on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Disks

It’s an older interview from 2011 but I hadn’t encountered it before. It’s pretty funny, yet beautifully intimate and very touching. At times I laughed out loud, at others I found it hard to listen to Mark speaking through what I believe are tears. He breaks my heart.

Thank you so much, my-citrus-pocket, for the tip!

Aw, you listened to it! *sobs* Yes, it’s heartbreaking, that little pause, it gets me every time… When you are familiar with the way he usually speaks, you can hear how hard he struggles to keep himself together. But it’s also so very delightful. :)

About writing Doctor Who and Sherlock, and deciding what direction to take the story: “The last thing you want to do is give people what they think they want.”

For those seeking to fill a gap, needing help with their process, or just wanting to change it up a bit, Ivy’s compiled a big honking list of the various writing tools she uses.  Some of them are quite obvious but still classic, like “pen and paper.”  Others are things you might not have heard of.
